How do I “clear” Track information in iTunes and Pick a New Gracenote Entry?

October 20, 2010DavidiTunes0

Q: I’m using iTunes and I accidentally picked the wrong Gracenote entry.  How do I erase this entry and pick another choice?

A:  Sometimes I’m too quick in my selection, too.  Here’s what you do:

1) Select the track(s) in question and press the right-click button.

2)  You should get a context menu similar to this one:


Select “Get Track Names” and the tracks should update. If you are not happy with the change (you may not get the original popup box) then your other choice will be to delete the tracks and re-import the CD with the correct selection.  It’s annoying but it will work.

Another option would simply be to edit the information by hand for the multiple tracks (which is a heck of a lot faster — in many cases- than reimporting). I’ve got a video here that explains how to edit multiple iTunes tracks at once.
