Hi Paul,
I found one topic http://www.jthink.net/jaikozforum/posts/list/50.page on this so it seems like you know quite a bit about the COMM section of ITunes and how gapless playback works with it.

Like a bazillion other people, I have a problem where ITunes begins "Determining Gapless Playback Information..." every time I open ITunes on a different computer (I have two: A PPC and an Intel). I use Chronosync to sync the entire ITunes folders but I keep my actual music files on a NAS. For some reason, whenever I sync ITunes to my other computer and open up ITunes, it begins this resource-hogging "Determining Gapless Playback" business.

I would like to use Jaikoz to change all the COMM fields in my library (I have 2TB of music) so that ITunes stops "Determining..." every time I open ITunes on another computer.

Can Jaikoz help fix this problem and if so, what do I need to do? Thanks for the great app.

I'd also like to add that if possible, I'd like to keep Gapless Playback for those albums that currently have it. In other words, I don't wish to get rid of this ITunes feature, just to fix the "problem" files.

I just bought newest and best MBP money can buy with core i7, 8GB RAM and a very fast SSD.

To my astounishment, iTunes doesn't work well at all. iTunes has used over 20 hours to determine the gapless playback and retrieve cover art. I estimate it will take at least another 20 hours to finish this. And this is just the beginning, as I have put only half of my library there.

My librarary is in the server and I don't let iTunes to manage the files etc. Server is pretty powerful, and my MBP is connected via LAN to it.

I have used Jaikoz to fix the tags etc. I have to say that Jaikoz rocks! I can't imagine living without it.

Just as an idea, is it possible to use Jaikoz and iTunes integration to disable the gapless playback and retrieval of cover art.
