Hi, I've done some searching for this on the forum and can't find the answer, but apologies if I'm being dim and have missed something ...

I've got about 1900 songs and have been tagging them using itunes (7.0.2.16) over the past 4 or 5 years, Got a Squeezebox3 last year and am very impressed with it apart from one thing : about 450 of the songs say 'No Genre' in Slimserver, when they definitely have a genre in itunes.

Any ideas ? (I've tried clearing the library and rescanning)
SlimServer Version: 6.5.0 - 9916 - Windows XP - EN

Thanks
John

>I've got about 1900 songs <

What format - mp3, AAC etc? I'm not 100% certain of iTunes with mp3. IMHO, get a copy of mp3tag (it's donation-ware) and configure as described in the Slimdevices Wiki - http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?Mp3tagGuide

I've used mp3tag to sort out loads of tagging problems.

Brilliant - thanks for the reply. MP3tag sorted me out - it turns out I had multiple tag types in about 600 songs. Doh!

Slimserver now picks up all the genres in my tags.
