No, iTunes does not know how you would rate the songs.

Ratings are a highly personal choice something my family would rate as 5 stars, I would rate as 1 star because I don't like that song. Or if you are not using stars, heart or no heart.

You can select many (or all) tracks in iTunes, right click one of the selected tracks and set the rating in the context menu that you want. This way you can rate a lot of tracks at the same time.

I set the ratings on my iPod / iPhone on each track when I an listening to them, then sync with iTunes to get the results imported into the iTunes database.

iTunes has access to CDDB to get CD and track information, it has had that for at least 10 years.

I have not seen anything for a global ratings database. Again since we as people have widely different opinion on song ratings, I can't see how this would be helpful.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
