  1. Hi Does this book cover fixing/maintaining/cleaning up the iTunes media library problems. An example of some of my problems.. The tracks from some albums end up split in iTunes. i.e…. track 1-4 show up ok… but tracks 5 – 13 show up as separate albums ? Tags seem OK/consistent . Other albums show some duplicate tracks… checking the actual mp3’s.. there are no duplicates.. so I look again through iTunes and delete the duplicates ? Anyway.. a lot of little problems like that… btw… my lib is med/large…(about 35000 tracks – 225GB) and I point to it on an external USB drive.. My mac is an Air… so I don’t have enough hd space

  2. A huuuge thank you, Kirk! Or should I say “Captain” Kirk! For those of you who don’t get the reference, go to 9gag! I highly recommend Kirk’s book! He helped me understand a iTunes-related podcast issue, with a quick email, after I’ve spent weeks browsing for a solution!

    BUY THE BOOK! He knows what he’s doing! Great guy!
