Hi all- I just wanted to pass this along, since it seems like there are a LOT of files out there that have one name, even though they are by another band, or they are a different song.
I was looking for some songs by a band called WildSide- a hair band from the 80's-90's. Couldnt find any of them on KL, several nights in a row. So I decided since nobody has them, I'd rip the CD, and give peeps access to a really good (my opinion) band.
Well, one of the tracks on the album is called "Hair of the Dog" (which is not a remake of Queen's, btw). So after I got done ripping, I opened up KL, went to MyKazaalite k++ to start editing the info about the songs.
What did I find? KL had AUTOMATICALLY assigned this song as being by......QUEEN. Needless to say, I didnt want peeps thinking they were gonna get a Queen song, and then not get it. Or, not take the song because they want WildSide, and think it's Queen. So, I right clicked it, and changed the info.
Getting songs that are called one thing by KL, and turn out to be something else, is really fricken annoying, to a LOT of people. And just changing the filename of the song, doesnt change the info that KL tags to it. You have to go into My Kazaa Lite, which brings up everything in your shared folder. Then you click each one, and below it, it gives a list of all of the info that KL has tagged to it. You can change what it says about the file, by right clicking on the file, and choose EDIT DETAILS.
If we can keep some of these titles straightened out, its gonna give peeps one less thing to be unhappy about. And yeah...I went through over 430 files tonight, making sure that everything was what it was supposed to be. If I can, we all can.
(Btw- thanks MM for telling me how to edit that information!
