Transfer iTunes song ratings after re-ripping library
Authored by: morespace54 on Apr 02, '08 02:18:09PM

Maybe I'm missing something here (and I probably do) because I don't see why you couldn't simply export your Library?

Select "Music", then select "Export" (not "Export Library") then you have a text file with all the information for each track (namely "My Rating").

You can now import that text file in iTunes. Every track that is in the text file and in your iTunes (folder) will get the information (last played, rating, etc.)

Of course, tracks from the text file that don't appear in iTunes will be skipped. Note that they also must be on the same path but you could simply do a Search and Replace and remove that information from the text file (it won't stop iTunes from adding the rest of the information properly).
