First off, I would want this option to be not checked by default. Some fields I would consider would be song names, artist names, and album names. But I would want there to be check boxes besides each one as to indicate which ones you would want translated --- and I would have no checked boxes by default for each field --- even if you select "translate foreign fields" --- so that you would be forced to choose. And I didn't mention genre, because I'm assuming the genre is already in English, even for foreign music.
One such program that already does this is MusicBrainz Picard, so it is possible.
When I try to do the function of auto correcting based on locally analyzing, my computer freezes up and Jaikoz eventually says that there was a problem and that Jaikoz needed to be restarted. But, I CAN skip that step and just get the PUID's and auto correct based on comparison to MusicBrainz, which works just fine. Please help! Thanks.
I have some original-from-Japan CD's that I have in my music collection as MP3's, and their song information (song title, artist name, etc.) is written in Japanese characters.

Worried about Jaikoz getting rid of the Japanese characters, should I uncheck the "Remove Undisplayable Characters" box under the different fields ("Artist Settings...," "Album Settings...," etc.) under the "Local Correct Settings..." under the "Action Settings" from the Jaikoz main menu's toolbar?

Basically, I am worried that if I have the "Remove Undisplayable Characters" box checked, it will get rid of the Japnaese characters. Should I be worried about this?

So, should I have the "Remove Undisplayable Characters" box checked or not?


P.S.: I know that Jaikoz is written in Unicode, meaning that all letters/characters, including foreign ones, are displayable, but I'm still worried about this.
You said, "Ok, let leave it as this: if you have a problem with one mp3 file, and you want it sorted, send me the file and I will fix the problem in the next jaikoz release, otherwise just leave it".

When Jaikoz loads my files, it says (individually, for each song) a few of my songs are represented as MP3's but not really MP3's, and they may be corrupt. When this happens with one of my songs, it tells me this, and then stops loading the rest of the songs.

Referring back your quote, how do I send you one of these files?

I went to the Jaikoz main page (http://www.jthink.net/jaikoz/jsp/startup.jsp). I selected "Downlad Java." Under "Download Java Runtime," I selected "Windows XP [since I have Windows XP]." And I downloaded it from there.
I had aleady downloaded the latest version of Java.
I tried getting Jaikoz on my default computer (the one that wouldn't let me get the last verion) AND my laptop (the NORMAL computer that would actually let me get the last version). Both wouldn't let me get it, and both did the same thing. Everything went okay, until I got to the part where I was supposed to click on the icon with the picture of the rocket coming out of a cup of coffe to the left of its text, which says says:

LaunchAnywhere GUI
Zero G"

I clicked it, and got this message:

"Fatal Application Error

I clicked "Details..." and got this:

Can you help me?
Would it be possible to have an estimate as to the release date of the next Jaikoz version, the version with PUID-support? (Refer back to http://www.jthink.net/jaikozforum/posts/list/14.page at the very bottom-the last thing said).
In future releases of Jaikoz, Jaikoz should be able to arrange artists in these such ways:

1). Janis Joplin OR Joplin, Janis (since last names are less common than first names, it would be easier to find artists if they were arranged by last names)
2). The Doors OR Doors, The
3). D.J. Tiesto OR Tiesto, D.J. (This would be helpful if you have a large techno collection and can't always remember if a techno artist goes by "D.J." or not).
("The" and "D.J." are the only titles I could think of, but other common titles are applicably as well).

And the same for song names starting with "The," "A," or "An"; this might be helpful because some music managers (like iTunes) might go in alphabetical order counting the first words "The," "A," or "An" and some might not, and this might be helpful to people who's music managers do, who don't always remember the "The," "A," or "An."

I would keep the default settings, though, as the way it is now.
I don't know what my log files are and don't know how to get them because I'm stupid with computers (as if you didn't already know), so, unless it is really important for me to send them to you, can we please just forget about it? (And I know if you tried to explain it to me, I still wouldn't understand).
I gave up; I just put my music on an external hard drive that I have, tried to get the latest version of Jaikoz on my laptop (which I did successfully; it must have just been this computer that wouldn't get it), plugged in my external hard drive and did it on my laptop. So, everything is okay, now, right? --- WRONG. Okay, the first time I try it, it gives me some kind of error message; I didn't pay too much attention to it. So, I aborted and thought if I tried it again, it'd work. I tried it again and it says on the console (or whatever the thing is that says what you've done) "SEVERE: Unexpected problem with Jaikoz" and then "SEVERE: rethrew: {E301}: XML document structure must start and end within the same entity" Although, it continues tagging the music from MusicBrainz --- and at the normal speed. It stopped at 6014 out of 6040 songs, and I clicked "Finish". I aborted and thought I'd try ONE LAST TIME. When I tried the third time, it did the same thing, but didn't mention the XML thing - it said something was wrong but not anything specifically. It also stopped at 6013 songs instead. I went ahead and continued and saved to my external hard drive, knowing that I could just later delete it and put the correct information from my computer. Should I ignore this? Since it continued tagging, will this affect its reliability on tagging --- then, if not, should I ignore it?

What do "run against your jaikoz download" and "run the folowing command: C:\Apps>md5sums c:\download\Jaikoz.zip" mean? Sorry.
Please simplify the instructions - down to "take the mouse and click..." I don't understand a word you are saying. Sorry. And leave out non-instruction parts.
What do you mean by "unzip and install" the md5sums program. Please tell me what to do step by step, in the simplest terms possible.

It still won't let me do it. I even went and bought the best version of WinZip. It says "CRC Test Failed."
Winzip couldn't read the file, either. I was originally using something called "Extraction Wizard," which was probably the default one for the computer I have, as I have never dealt with a zip file before.

Oh, and, if it matters, when I successfully installed the second-to-latest version of Jaikoz, I just used the "Extraction Wizard;" I never had Winzip before you told me to get it.
I think I thought of a really good idea for an enhancement.

Okay, you have the options in which you can choose whether or not to have Jaikoz choose a match based on what's most popular if there is no metadata match or choose the single match if there is no metadata match. As an improvement to these options, Jaikoz could ask you to select ALL of the different genres of music your collection could have (or at least the collection you'll submit), based on a list of genres given to you by Jaikoz. Then, if there is no metadata match, and multiple matches, it can first rule out songs of genres you didn't select - then choose the most popular one among those. And if there is no metadata match, and a single match shows up, and it is not of a genre you selected, then it wouldn't choose it.

Although, the only problem I foresee with this is that deciding what genre a band is of is not an exact science. I have come acrossed songs marked as "rock," "general rock," etc., and then much more specific genres. Deciding on a genre of a band or song is biased.

So, the CORE genres could be given (not the list of EVERY genre a song could be given), like rock, pop, techno, country, etc. (the genres on the level that are least related), then have subgenres. and maybe subsubgenres. A user could just choose "rock" and not any subgenres, knowing for sure what every one of his or her songs goes under the genre of "rock." Or, they could choose subgenres or subsubgenres.

The assigned genre of a song wouldn't need to be changed. When looking at a song, Jaikoz could know which higher level of genre that song's genre goes under, and maybe even a higher level than that. So, if a user just chose "rock," and if a song is classified under "punk," Jaikoz could choose that song as a possible match and then choose the most popular based on the possible matches (the possible matches being under the genre[s] selected).

I know that Jaikoz was designed for large collections of music, but, for small collections, a list of all known artists could be added and the same principle applied: the user would select every possible artist that could be in their music. And, if the options are selected, Jaikoz would narrow down multiiple, non-mata matches to those artists and then choose the most popular.

And maybe even albums...

I guess it could also be possible for Jaikoz to base this off the genres that you already have, the user not having to select genres, but this wouldn't be as accurate, because it is possible that your current genre information could be wrong, the information Jaikoz tags it for genre could be wrong, no metadata might exist, and it is possible that all the songs with no metadata matches happen to be of a completely different genre than the songs with metadata matches. But the user having to select genres wouldn't take that much time, and the user wouldn't even have to implement the option for Jaikoz to auto-match based on genre and popularity, anyway.

This would help make auto-choosing a match when no metadata match is available much more reliable, as it would narrow the matches to choose down to what the specific collection has. And even if there IS no metadata, the person would at least know what genres he likes and would have on his or her collection.
First off, I did try to download Jaikoz directly from www.jthink.net. Second, I use Windows and, therefore, was obviously trying to download the Windows version. Lasty, I was able to open the zip file okay. Then it showed the exe file within the zip file. I pressed "extract all files" (even though the command was for all files, the exe file was the only one in it), then it showed the Extraction Wizard; I gave the new destination for the file, hit "Next," then it gave me a message with a heading of "Compressed (zipped) Folders Error" and a message of "Error reading the file" with a big, red "X."

I am probably going to just wait for the Jaikoz with the new PUID's and try to install that, but, if you can help, I would still like a reply.

When I try to install the latest version of Jaikoz, trying to extract the Jaikoz.exe file, it has a message with a heading of "Compressed (zipped) Folders Error" and a message of "Error reading the file."

And I did install the latest version of java (or at least the version needed).

Although, it would let me install the second-to-latest version of Jaikoz. (I did this, because, since I couldn't get the latest, and the problems fixed from the second-to-last one didn't affect the accuracy of file tagging and were only issues that might happen, I thought I'd use the second-to-last edition of Jaikoz; but, now, I need the latest, as it does the thing [that was fixed for the latest version] where it displays an 'Unexpected Error' instead of the real problem in error and warning popup messages)
Using the options, settings, etc., how do I make it so that Jaikoz looks up and tags my songs based on their acoustic fingerprints alone and not based on their already-exising tags, their already-existing metadata, their already-existing information, etc? And how can I make it integrate/use looking up and tagging based on acoustic fingerprints more? NOTE: IF you think there are any concerns with looking up and tagging based on acoustic fingerprinting alone, let me know, too. (But first tell me how to do the first thing I asked, regardless). Thanks.
