ITunes Isn't doing what I want it to and I need an alternative

Other Apple Chat

I am using Windows7 and I need a way to organize music that’s already on my phone, or a way to put music on my phone without it being messed with. I have changed the data for the songs that ITunes put in unknown artist folders and so on. I’ve gotten it to be better, but there is still so much of my music that ITunes is messing up, and moving on me. I have no more patience for ITunes and really need help finding a good program for organizing my music. Any ideas would be great!

Try to organize your library a little more. If you have any songs, albums, or playlists that you don't listen to any more, you can delete them from your library.

Before I got assimilated by the Apple mother ship, I used a program called Media Monkey. A search should turn it up. I stopped using it because the latest version at the time didn't work well with Window-Eyes. Now on Windows I use NVDA, but I haven't gone back to try the program again. If you are one who likes everything organized and categorized just so, there's no better media manager than Media monkey on Windows. It also handles podcasts, and it will talk to your iOS devices. It's free to try so it is worth checking out. At one time the maker had JAWS scripts on the site too. I don't know if those are still there, but it does suggest they are aware of accessibility concerns and would understand you if you had a question for them.

I would use mp3 tag then manually add the music to itunes by checking theemanually manage box.

Good luck.

Another app you can use is called waltr. You can check it out and the developers are aware of and want to fix the accessibility problems on windows. It's worth the 30 or so bucks.
