View Full Version : Replacing music files in iTunes

15-01-2008, 04:12 PM
Sometimes I get a longer version of a song and I want to put it in iTunes to replace the shorter one already there. So I put the new MP3 file into the iTunes Music folder in Windows Explorer which replaces it. However, when I play the song on iTunes, it cuts off at the end of original song's length.
For example, if I have a song that is 3:25 and I replace it with a 3:42 version, when I play the song in iTunes, it stops playing at 3:25 and moves onto the next song.

What can I do to fix this, without having to reimport the song into iTunes (as this removes play counts/ratings/etc.)?

Delete the old one and load the new one then sync

So what if it resets everything. Its not going to hurt anything.
