I have downloaded a complete album but want to identify each individual track in itunes with album name, composer, year, track# etc. With the music i have downloaded from the itunes store I simply click on the info tab and fill in the content. But this one only shows as a complete album. Is it possible to add the content I need and if so, how do I do it?

    Hi Abziwo,

     

    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.  This article has information on how to edit the information for individual tracks in iTunes:

    Cheers,

    You do it exactly the same way.

    If you are viewing by Album (top of iTunes below the now playing window), click an album to see the individual songs.

    Buy the album from a source that sells it as individually tagged tracks.

     

    Look for software to split the source audio into the constituent tracks (you'll need to chose the cut points manually) and then edit the metadata.

    Audacity is a handy tool, but unless the original file is in an uncompressed format you may want to find a (preferably free) tool that specifically chops up mp3/aac/whatever without transcoding as that would reduce fidelity. I've used Portable MPEG Audio Scissors or something that looks just like it at some point in the past.

    You're welcome.
