Is this for all CDs or only a specific disc?

I'm having the same problem. Tried 6 CDs. Is this related to a new version of iTunes?
I trashed the prefs file and started from scratch. Same problem. Any ideas?

Thanks

Sorry forgot some info.

iTunes v7.7.1

Also tried logging into a 'clean' unused account and setting up Max. Same problem.
Could there be some other system extension or other interferring with max? What does Max require to be there
to get the tags info for a CD?

Willing to help. Thanks.

MacPro dual quad core
OS X 10.5.4
no other APPs running at the time; iTunes does startup and get the track data, it just isn't being passed to Max.

This worked perfectly when I last used it a couple of weeks ago.

Are you using the Get iTunes Metadata script from these forums or are you trying to use MusicBrainz?

Have you verified that the CD is in the MusicBrainz database? See the topic http://forums.sbooth.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2092 for more information on how to do this.

You're right, they were two new records. Now I've tried with a very old cd, maybe the very first cd ever released, and it worked.

For discs that aren't in MusicBrainz I would recommend using the Get iTunes Metadata AppleScript.

Is there a "how to use Metadata AppleScript" user guide?

Launch iTunes and Max, insert the CD, and when iTunes has received the metadata from Gracenote, run the script to get the metadata from iTunes into Max.

oh yeah, now it works! But you don't need to launch iTune: just open Mac and than click on "Get iTunes Metadata". That's it.

Thanks a lot.
