thanks for taking a look at my post. i have been running the acoustic id search before tagging my files, but i still seem to be coming up with few manual tag selections.

i ran into a pretty good example yesterday; i was trying to tag my collection of Stone Temple Pilot albums. i first corrected all original albums, with relative ease. i then tried to tag their 'greatest hits' album. after retrieving acoustic ids, i ran autocorrect from MB server and many of the tracks were tagged as though they were tracks from their original release, not the 'greatest hits' compilation.

now, that's no problem; i understand that using acoustic ids would make correct id3 tags impossible to determine and metadata can be just as challenging. so, i then select to manually tag the files. this is the part i don't understand. some tracks show more releases than others. many incorrect tags had the correct tag ('greatest hits compilation') as a lower score and i was able to quickly make this correction. some incorrect tags, however, did not have the correct id3 tag listed as a selection. i then must search the MB site for the appropriate track and hope the server connects...i've been having problems with that lately.

is there any way to pull more releases from MB into jaikoz so that i can simply check the correct release within the program? perhaps a preference setting that i have turned on or off mistakenly?

this is still an awesome program...just hoping there's something i can do to better use it! thanks.
i've been searching through the forums here, hoping to find some elaboration on manual tagging files, but haven't come across this answer yet. my apologies if it has been addressed.

what i would like to be able to do is have jaikoz pull all releases of a track from the MB server so that i might be able to most accurately tag a file. as it stands, when i select to manually tag files, i most often need to then select 'search' and go to the MB web site. this is fine, but often the server is down or doesn't connect properly and i am unable to tag files from the web site. i then must type in the id3 info, which is a bit tedious.

i am thinking that there is probably some sort of preference setting that i can change so that more releases are available to select. or maybe the file that i am trying to retag has some funky metadata that makes it impossible to match to the correct id3 info? i'm not sure if the manual tagging feature relies on metadata or acoustic ids....unfortunately, i am a bit of a novice with this program and computers in general, so some intricacies go over my head.

great application, though. it has helped reorganize my mess of mp3s quite nicely. but any solutions or suggestions in regards to the former question are appreciated. thanks.
