Not all BPM info is synchronized

I have analyzed my iTunes library several times both from the iTunes library and as a Drive with music on it . I have approximately 4800 songs in my library. The beaTunes analysis assigned BMPs to 95% of the songs. However on about 60 songs in my library in iTunes has the BPM associated. I have tried syncing beaTunes and iTunes several times and the BPMs still don't change.

Additionally during the analysis process, beaTunes would lock up several times when trying to analyze songs I purchased from iTunes. Sometimes I can click okay to keep the application working. Most times it would lock up especially if the songs were sequence during the analysis process.

  • JVM: Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM

    for those 60 songs - does beaTunes show BPM in its window (but simply not in iTunes)? Or are they not shown at all?

    Are there any error messages in the Queue window when re-analyzing those songs?

    Regarding the lock up issue you are describing - this is a known issue on Windows when analyzing DRM protected songs. The only workaround right now is to simply not analyze DRM protected songs.

    Hope this helps,

    It shows in ITunes and in beaTunes. How can I get the rest to show in iTunes.

    No error messages in the queue window

    How do I choose not to analyze DRM protected songs.

    If the BPM show in iTunes and in beaTunes - where are they missing?

    You can select songs for analysis individually...

    They are BPM are missing in iTunes. Only about 60 of the 4800 show up in iTunes. They are in beaTunes. How can I get them to show in iTunes?

    They should show up in iTunes if they show up in beaTunes - at least, if you have selected to create an iTunes-based library (see for reading up on the difference).

    If they don't show up this might be because the files are read-only.
