Help me tame my embarassing mp3 mess
March 21, 2012 5:16 AM Subscribe
I have a 2002-era problem: a big library of Mp3s, many ripped from physical CDs I own, some downloaded from iTunes, others left over from when I merged music collections with my then partner. They are completely disorganised. Some albums are incomplete, most lack album art, hundreds of individual songs are just kicking around in a big folder of their own. What's the best way to tame the mess?
(This question has been asked before
, but I imagine best solutions have changed since 2008).

I have access to a Mac and a PC but would prefer to keep my music library primarily on the PC since it has a much bigger hard drive. Part of my reason for wanting to get organised is so I can sync selected songs/albums to my Mac and iPhone in a relatively hassle-free way. (Please explain anything iTunes-related to me like I'm really dumb - until I got the Mac I basically only used it for the store, so I'm still not familiar with all its quirks).
