I need to transfer metadata from album a (title: useful, mp3) to album b (title: useless, flac). Is there an automated way to do this?

If this is just a few albums then you can load both albums into Jaikoz and use Copy and Paste within the main spreadsheet view. If this is for many albums and the filenames of both sets of albums are the same (except for .mp3/flac suffix) then you could do the following.

- Load Mp3 Albums
- Advanced:Export (as .xls)
- Then edit first column of spreadsheet with your favourite spreadsheet tool replacing .mp3 in filename with .flac
- Restart Jaikoz
- Load Flac files
- Advanced:Import selecting your spreadsheet
- Save

This should import all your mp3 metadata into the equivalent flac files

Thank you so much. I licensed Jaikoz years ago along with songkong and never used it. Did not realize what I am missing. Great piece of software. Probably should (have) read the manual.

(Took the spreadsheet approach because filenames differ - derived from track title - but it works like a charm.)
