    beaTunes can do genre tagging (Analysis Tasks -> Import Metadata). Note that genre may be very subjective—your mileage may vary.

    can I import them into Serato DJ if they ca be tagged?

    That is a question Serato should answer. If Serato can read regular genre tags, then yes.

    OK with that being said I just need to analyze my hard drive with beaTunes
    and them I guess import the music to my Serato?

    That's what I would assume.

    As I said, your mileage may vary. When importing metadata, be extra careful not to overwrite, i.e. replace valid data. Whatever you already have, may be "more" correct and there is no undo (do you have a backup?!).

    So you might want to try this with a few songs first.

    I do not think I overwritten my Metadata I did the changes of the genre
    itself within my music software not on the drive itself.

    I'm not sure I understand what you are saying.

    What I am trying to say is that I did not change any data in the file
    itself only in the music program.

    If with "music program" you mean beaTunes, you have changed data in the file itself. Changes in beaTunes are almost always reflected in the file.

    There is only one exception and that is if you are using an iTunes-based beaTunes library and you are changing fields that iTunes does not support while embedding (an option in the general preferences) is off. See https://blog.beatunes.com/2013/10/so-where-exactly-does-beatunes-st... for details.

    Ahh ok sorry for all the questions. One more question will BeaTunes help me
    with finding the correct music genre for my music? I have gotten a new
    music hard drive from a friend and a lot of his music genre tags are way
    off from the song. Can this program help detect the correct music genre
    tags and properly tag them in the program?

    Even in the free trial you should be able to make changes.

    That said, if you are unhappy, you can get your money back, (if you want that) within 60 days of the purchase.
