How to Clean Up iTunes Library

Your iTunes becomes clumsy and in a mess due to too many duplicate songs? Have a big music collection, but many songs miss ID 3 information, like artist, album, track number, genre, and more. Even though iTunes can download this kind of information automatically, mismatching happens from time to time. And album artwork, the important factor for better visual effect and management, is totally missing. What's worse, you need to repeat clicking a single song and waiting for its information to show every time. And also, you cannot take all the information to go with you when playing music in other players or transferring to portable devices. It's time to get your iTunes in order now. Here're two ways to iTunes Library cleanup.
