well, you should never put huge amounts of untagged content in the library. put it in an album or so at a time, find it at the bottom of the all songs list and tag it and move on.

Oh! Yeah. There really is no way around this but to find the songs and label them 1 at a time.

Actually, I'm searching for songs already in the library and wanting to add them to a large playlist I'm creating. This is where itunes gives me a hassle about untagged material. You have to search the library and the searches become very tedious if the material is untagged.

No. I'm searching for songs that are not in iTunes yet. Press control O when your in iTunes and your file browser will open. find the drive your music is on then find the folders or songs you wish to add.

Ok, but are you searching for these untagged items in itunes itself? Doing the search that way I generally can't get the entire album to come up. If I browse my music drive in finder, there's no way to then get that folder into itunes. Perhaps I'm missing some crucial element.

Hello,

I'm a little confused. What do you mean you can only add 1 song at a time? Well when I have a bunch of stuff I want to put in iTunes and tag, I find what I want to add. For example a folder full of stuff from the stones. I check how many songs are in the folder then I add it to iTunes. Then I go to my recently added playlist. Now the content of the folder you just added is all together either at the beginning or end of the songs table depending on how you have it set up. Highlight the group of songs and press command I. now you can group tag artist, album, genre, and so on.

Hi, all,

I'm building a very large playlist in itunes and, since my library is very old, a great many of the older things don't have id3 tags which makes it a royal pain to search for these albums and songs since itunes really doesn't like things with no tags. Is there a way of mass tagging a given album assuming I could get it into itunes as a whole in the first place? I would like to correct a lot of this but I haven't found any way of getting these albums into itunes as a whole except for one lousy song at a time. Of course since itunes won't make album names from folder names, these albums can't be browsed for in any way. I don't hold out much hope but any help to make this job easier is very welcome. Thanks.
