Adjust Song title when exporting Playlist from MM

Post by pcvchriskmg »

Hi,

I'm exporting playlist files out of MM and then importing them into iTunes.

However, when they're in iTunes, the song name is in the format "Artist-Song Name."

Is there any type of setting I can change in MM so that when the playlist file is exporting, the original tag information is preserved?

Secondly, when I export a playlist, the playlist is only 7 KB. When I look at the individual song files from within the exported playlist in iTunes, the path refers to the location where the exported playlist resides, but I can't see the entire path because iTunes truncates it. This particular path ends in .mp4, which is the actual file's extension. But when I export a playlist, I'm not re-copying any files, am I? Or is iTunes still playing the original file on the harddrive?

Basically, I'm asking if I am eating up harddrive space by exporting my playlist files out of MM. If I have 100 playlists, with 50 or so songs each, I don't want to have copies of each of the song files on my computer because that's just a waste.

No you're not copying the files when you export a playlist. I'm not sure about the song name though as it seems that it's an iTunes issue.

Same problem here, thought it was a bug in the new iTunes 10, but I tried on iTunes 9 and have the same problem.
