Getting ITunes to recognize song titles instead of track numbers.

In the studio we master CD’s for many independent music groups who want their song titles to show up in ITunes, instead of just a track number.

Its easy to do once it is submitted to the data base called Gracenote.  This can be done within ITunes.  It can take a week or two before you see the results.

1. Open iTunes
2. Insert CD
3. Locate CD in iTunes (do NOT import yet)
4. Highlight all of the cd tracks
5. Right click and select “Get Info”
6. Click the “Info” tab
7. Change the album title/artist name/year/genre
8. Click “OK”
9. Now use this procedure for individual track names
10. Highlight track 1 and right click to select “Get Info”
11. Click on the “Info” tab
12. Update the “Name” and then click “Next”
13. Once you finish writing in your info for all tracks click “OK”
14. Highlight all of the tracks again
15. Click on the “Options” symbol on the upper right corner of the tracklist window
16. Select “Submit CD Track Names…”
17. Allow the progress bar to complete
