Hard to figure out exactly what is going on from your description but...
I think I would check the Field Type for the field you are importing the path/filename into (I am betting it is defined as a number, it should be text).
Thanks for your suggestion, but it doesn't work.
I'll restate the problem.
In the import Field Mapping screen I map as follows:
my FMP file mp3.file
record number file name
456 456.mp3 example
456 4563 result
The record number is indeed a number, the file name must be a text. When I redefine the record number as a text, nothing happens.
recnrtext file name
e.g 456 456.mp3
"recnrtext" was shaded grey in the Import Field Mapping screen, which was ominous.
I expect the problem to be the conversion of the presumably text variable "file name" in the mp3 file; when "file name" as a text variable (e.g. 456.mp3) is
converted to a number the result is 4563, and not 456.
I had this problem with the .jpg2 files and it disappeared when I converted the files to .jpeg.
I hope my explanation is understandable, and I look forward to your or anyone's suggestion.
Your initial response set me on the right track; I solved the problem.
In my FMP file I converted the variable 'record number' to a text variable with ".mp3" added to it.
As I have some 25000 mp3 files, it is not the final solution. I do not want to change the file names of all of them.
So I have to find a way to use and manipulate the data of the mp3 files.
I'll a look at the iTunes forum.
Thanks for your reaction.
