My understanding is that a recent iTunes update changed their method of saving artwork, to external files and folder, as opposed to saving it in the mp3 itself.

I don't think I like this idea for me, although I'm not sure I understand the ramifications.

First of all, is there a function to take the folder artwork and stuff it inside the mp3, and then delete the folder artwork.

Second question, as I just got the iPod Touch. Will the Coverflow feature work with the artwork in the MP3 file.

Third, if anybody has some background information to fill in all the gaps in my knowledge, I'd sure like to hear it.



You can use 'Action/File and Folder COrrect/Tag From Filename' to extract file info into tags, and in your case I would think this would move the info directly into the title field.


Thank you for the fast response.

I tried your suggestion, but without much success. In fact, I'd say less than 10% of the filename's got moved into the title field.

That Correct Tag from filename looks to be doing a whole lot of logic, to try and do things correctly.

In my case, I have my best data in the filename, and I'd just like to move that one filename field, into the title field. 100 % of the time.

Thanks for listening.

I've got a bunch of songs that either do not have a title, or the title is prefixed with 01 or 02.

My best information for those is in the file name. And while some of the file names also are prefexed with track number or other garbage, I can use Renamer4mac to apply regular expressions to clean up.

So I want to select those songs, and select an option to move the file name data into the title field. Minus the trailing file name suffix of mp3 or m4a, etc.

Also on the Find and Replace function, I want to replace with nothing. For example, starting with --- replace with null. The replace button does not highlight until a value is in the Replace field.


I'm having a lot of problems with Jaikoz on my Macintosh, and am wondering if maybe Java is to blame. My understanding is that Apple has poor support for Java.

Maybe I would be better off with Jaikoz on Linux or Windows, assuming they have a more robust Java implementation.

What's the best OS and Java implementation to run Jaikoz at the moment ?


Neglected some critical information.

Macintosh OS X 10.4.8

Jaikoz 1.7.0

I see an earlier message about oversized popup windows, and the inability of closing them. Looks lilke the same thing to me, although it was supposedly fixed in 1.6.0

I look around for any logs and send them to support.

I'm trying to use Jaikoz for the first time, and tell it to include my iTunes libary.

It imports several thousand songs, and then throws up an error message with a yellow exclamation mark and ladybug.

The error pop up window says

The following audio files are not recognized as mp3 files, they may be corrupt.

It then lists an entire screen worth of songs.

There are no close buttons or any way to dismiss this screen

This screen is hanging up the rest of your program, making it unusable.

I guess I should have tried out this program before buying it.

Any suggestions on how to proceed ?
