    Alternative to MusicMatch Jukebox when moving to Vista

    Hi,

    I have used MusicMatch Jukebox for some time to amend MP3 tags, add
    art work etc & was perfectly happy with what I used it for.

    I've now moved to Windows Vista & MusicMatch Jukebox is not compatible
    with this OS. The new Yahoo version which does run on Vista cannot add
    art work to MP3 tags and if it is possible to batch change tags in
    this version the process beats me.

    Any suggestiions for an alternative please.

    David

    In my opinion there is nothing as good as Musicmatch was for me...The Yahoo
    replacement is a joke as you have seen, and so is iTunes. Waste of time!

    WMP doesn't look and operate the way I like but I am using it. Only other
    one is Winamp but it too has some missing stuff. Musicmatch handled online
    tagging and file renaming quickly and efficiently. If you find something let
    us know

    I too liked Musicmatch and bought the lifetime key. I guess a lifetime is
    only about 3 years now.

    Yes I did buy it and I used the key to transfer it to the Yahoo JOKE player
    :-)

    Before I got Vista I too enjoyed using MusicMatch, but Yahoo was recommended
    to me by MusicMatch when I switched to Vista. I never used Yahoo, but
    started using iTunes and it works fine for me, although you can't do a lot of
    things with iTunes like you could with MusicMatch. I especially miss the
    automatic online search for mp3 names, artists, albums, artwork, etc. Are
    you THE Dave Matthews?

    The new version of Winamp V5.5 has the ability to download
    album artwork and auto fill the tags, I just found this out and I
    think I like it.

    I use a program call MP3TagStudio to edit the MP3 tags.
    It's the most versatile tag editor I've found.

    RE: Alternative to MusicMatch Jukebox when moving to Vista

    I got the warning that MusicMatch 10 wasn't compatible, but I installed it
    anyway, and haven't had any problems with it. I only use it to manage my
    library - add track info and whatnot, and to rip and burn cds, however - it
    won't work with my mp3 player.
