Fixing iTunes look up results

macOS & Mac Apps

Hello Apple Vis,
i have a series of Arabic lessons on CD from Pimsleur language learning. It is over Arabic, and I've been importing a few CDs onto my iTunes. The first CD it could not find the tracks, and the second CD was read as Hebrew. Then the third CD was correct. Is there any possibility to fix this? If so, How? What do I need to do to correct the songs?

If you know the Arabic language in written form, you can import the CDs in to your iTunes library and rename the: song, artist, album, genre and so on. Remember to switch your keyboard language when renaming the songs. Hope this helps and good luck!

Hello, and thanks. How do I go about doing so? The CDs are in english. It is the audio that is in Arabic. I know the artist is Pimsleur, and the tracks on the CDs that it did manage to know were not names in any different language. They were name Unit such and such.

Select a track, then press Command-I for Get Info. In the info window, look for the details area and interact with it. In here, you will find a bunch of text fields you can use to change the song info, such as name, artist, album artist, album, composer, genre, year, and other things. Make your changes, then press Command-N to move to the next track. Make your changes for this track, then press Command-N again, repeating until you have changed all tracks. You can also press Command-P to go to the previous track in this window. When done, press Return to close the info window.

You can also select multiple tracks at a time in the iTunes window, then press Command-I and change all tracks at once. This can be handy for selecting names for the album and artist fields. You cannot, however, change individual song names this way.
