Ti­tle ter­rors

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

There are times when you be­gin to won­der whether up­dat­ing is sen­si­ble. I have just loaded iTunes 12.2 and my first task was to load a CD of songs which we, as a char­ity, use for fu­ner­als. When the songs were im­ported the ti­tles were in Ja­panese rather than English! I have tried to find a way of fix­ing the prob­lem via pref­er­ences but to no avail.

There is cur­rently no help in the Ap­ple fo­rums. Do you have any ideas for how to en­sure this does not hap­pen in fu­ture? My cur­rent work­around is im­port the tracks into a folder and man­u­ally change the ti­tles but this should not be nec­es­sary. David Simp­son Alex Blake says: This sounds like the re­sult of a cou­ple of iTunes’ pref­er­ences for deal­ing with CDs. In iTunes > Pref­er­ences > Gen­eral, is the op­tion ‘When a CD is in­serted’ set to im­port the disc’s con­tents? If so, iTunes will do this with­out any in­ter­ven­tion from you. I sus­pect that the op­tion right be­low that, to au­to­mat­i­cally re­trieve CD track names from the in­ter­net, is also en­abled, and that your disc is be­ing matched to an in­cor­rect item in the online data­base of discs. You’ll want that set­ting on for con­ve­nience most of the time. So, change the first pref­er­ence’s set­ting to Show CD, click OK and then put the disc in your Mac. You can then re­view down­loaded de­tails be­fore im­port. Some­times iTunes will of­fer a choice of discs; you might find one of them matches your disc’s ac­tual con­tents.
