Q: Is there a way to re-categorize music in iTunes? For example, a CD I imported into iTunes is a country CD but was put in the Rock genre.

- Denny

A: Definitely. To change the properties for a track or group of tracks in iTunes, simply select those tracks, and then choose File, Get Info from the iTunes menu and you will be presented with a track information dialog box where you can make the necessary changes.

In the case of importing a CD, you can either change this information directly on the CD track listing in iTunes, in which case the files will be imported with the updated information, or you can find the tracks in iTunes after you import them and make the changes from there. In either case, the procedure and file information dialog is basically the same.
