Talk:iTunes Guide

From MusicBrainz Wiki

Delete this one

This one probably needs to be deleted, since iTunes is actually not really different from others, so a general Picard Guide should suffice. If anything should be really incompatible with iTunes, it's a bug and should be fixed in Picard. pronik 15:12, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

Support.mb gets enough itunes-related questions that a centralized "MB+Picard+iTunes=works" here would still be of use. However, some of the current language doesn't make sense... "This will not work for (.m4p). Although Picard is compatible with .m4p, ..." anyone? -- BrianFreud
I've updated the content now, and removed duplicate "how to use Picard" stuff. Should be a reasonable compromise. voiceinsideyou 16:03, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

File awareness on a Mac

I've added the fact, that iTunes on a Mac is aware of file movings if the library is on a HFS+ formatted drive. This way there is no need to re-import files and eases the process considerably. I've tested it on a Mac and FAT32 drive, it won't work. I haven't tested it on Windows though. M42i (talk) 15:35, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

iTunes is not file moving aware on Windows as of 2015-06-09 (iTunes 12.1.2.27 on Windows 8.1). I updated the wiki to suggest how to get the same benefits of using Picard's file moving/renaming by using iTunes built in organization + Picard's file taging. Hopefully this saves someone else a few days work on fixing imports :P
