Stopping Itunes from modifying my files

Post by MaximusPrime » Sun Feb 26, 2017 6:43 am

Ok, I'm absolutely not into Apple & its products but I use itunes to buy songs that are exclusively to their store. Everytime I open itunes it seems to modify my music files in background and adding my in tag saved covers as normal pictures in different sizes. How can I stop this process?

Don't add your media to your iTunes Library in the first place?

Huh, I know that there was some options to scan music folders in iTunes, Maybe yous point iTunes to watch for empty folder.

iTunes hasn't added media files to its Library here.

Thanks guys.
I've looked once more into all the options in itunes but there seems to be no point to deactivate this.
Maybe I just have to live with it :D I'm using itunes maybe 2 times a month for a couple minutes to buy some music, I just have to remember myself to remove to unwanted cover with album art tagger in mm :roll: :D
