Detailed Steps

1 - Download and install Music Tag.

2 - You can drag and drop, or search, for any song you want to tag. If you so wish, you can drag your entire music library.

3 - You can now browse through the files, and see what is tagged, or not.

4 - Select any tracks that are missing tags and click on "Download Missing Info".

5 - The program will download the data, sometimes giving you more than one result. You can cycle through these by using the top navigation arrows.

6 - You can edit any data you have received.

7 - Be sure to save your changes before you quit.

Be aware that in order to download data and cover art, an active internet connection needs to be available. Music Tag can only save one track if you haven't activated it. Once you purchase and activate Music Tag, there is no limit on the number of tracks that can be tagged.

Tips: If a track has been scanned, but has no data, a message will appear at the top indicating the fact. You can attempt to get better results by providing some more data, namely Artist name, Track name and Album, if you know them.

I drag and dropped some twenty well known songs into the add files section, and it kept coming back with no information etc. Like Ana Poppvic Steal Me Away and B B King Lucille. I have tried others as well. Can you help me figure this out. Also am I supposed to enter the key somewhere? I purchased this originally in 2015, but since it wasn't working, I bought it again, just now, through paypal 5/22/2017. Then when I checked it through support it said that I bought it in 2015, but nothing about today. I thought maybe the older version stopped working or something, which is why I purchased again. Thank You

I installed Music Tag on my MBP. When I selected multiple music files and clicked "download tags," the progress just stops and freezes. I tried different collections of files and the results are all the same. Please fix this problem.

Hi, I installed Music Tag on my Macbook Pro. It worked at first - now I get a "partial connection" yellow light and the download information is not working. How do you fix this? Thank you.

@Pamela Ames Please lookout for upcoming update 2.06 as this update includes a fix for this issue. Please note that whilst Music Tag 2.05 displays that there is a partial connection, this is an incorrect message and the connection did succeed. As such, the functionality of Music Tag should work as expected.

Please open a support ticket on our online helpdesk should you require any technical assistance.
