Thanks for your reply.

I chose to let Jaikoz update all fields in the ID3's regardless of what was there before. I just kept the actual .mp3 filenames as their names really don't matter to me but the existing playlist use them.

But when I reviewed the results I could see 10% where not updated even though I knew they where not so exotic it would be impossible. A few are very unusual though and that is OK. Running them one by one manually, most of them found a match. Sometimes in MusicBrainz but sometimes only in Discogs, or vice versa. Separate manual runs. I can't remember the actual songs now. Sometimes MusicBrainz even missed on the first but succeeded on a repeated try. Strange.

Updating the network disk perhaps took a little longer since the backup and master disk is a regular external WD HD and I worked on a USB 2 type of laptop. It moves 6 MB/s. But the network hard drive did spend 24h+ to rebuild the DLNA database (it is a WD My Cloud).

One idea for improvement or a setting in future versions: sometimes Jaikoz would detect that a certain song came from a compilation like "Summer hits 2003" and not the original album or "single". But now many years down the line it does not matter to me that it came from a compilation, I would rather have it updated with the data from the original single or the original album. Even though the "music DNA" is not a 100% correct match. Now this one-hit-wonder show up with the cover art from "Summer hits 2003", which is not so useful to me today. I'd rather have the option to chose the original single cover just because it tells me more when I see it on the screen. In at least 1000*1000. For eg my Spotify always has super cover art quality resolution regardless of how I enlarge the window.

Also, I noticed that Discogs very often returns with a shot of the center label of the record (vinyl or CD) and not the cover. You can't read anything from the low res pic of the centre label where the text is very very small.

Thanks! Best regards Tomas

Hi, I've just finished running Jaikoz Pro on my 55.000 mp3. I notice that the quality of the album cover art had not improved the past 15 years. Surprise. It is still rather low and designed for the thumbnail size there used to be on the typical players back then. Was I lured into the wrong product? Now reading the SongKong info it seems I should have had that one since it seems to use higher resolution for the cover art. Pls advice here. Why are there two different taggers and why am I not getting the best resolution when my focus is fixing the covers? (Running the 55.000 songs with some hick-ups and manual interventions takes 3-4 days and nights. I also noticed that none of the db's where reliable. They easily give up and skip if you don't break it down and manually "force feed" one by one. And after completing the update, it takes another 3 days and nights to copy it all over to the NAS and then have it rebuild the complete DLNA database. I rather not do this all over again plus pay more.)

Pls advice.

Regards Tomas

I only want to correct/over write all the album arts and genre/style.
Is this possible?

Is there anything I should think about to do this as automatically as possible?

(I have 55.000 mp3 and playlists that connect the them, so I don't want files to be moved or renamed since it will destroy the playlists. Years ago I made an automatic cover art update using winamp or similiar but it actually corrupted all album arts into the wrong ones. Plus that resolution in those days where poor. Today you want a better image quality for your album art since you view them on larger screens. Now I want to re-write ALL the album arts regardless.)
