iTunes Genius Feature not working

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have activated the feature, all of my data has been collected and sent and I've even updated it twice. But no matter what song I try, it will tell me "Genius is not available for the song "Whatever"". Any ideas?

So no one has a clue?

Are all of your songs titled correctly?
Song titles and artist spelled correctly?

Not sure but will it work if a person does not have an i-tunes account
had mine for years so never tried Genius on a Mac without it.

There's a software update (8.01) that has some bug fixes... perhaps that'll help?

Logged into iTunes Store?
No idea if it makes a difference, but something tell me that it does.

it can't do it for every song. i think the song has to be sold on itunes in order for the genius feature to work. it sounded really cool but in practice i ended up hating it so i never use it

I ripped some local bands cd's today and genius did not work! I have been enjoying the genius feature though, as I often play my whole library on shuffle but don't want to have make genre specific playlists.

how exactly does genius work anyway? has apple disclosed this? i'll admit sometimes i was surprised songs in my playlist went really well together, but sometimes it throws in an oddball as well. For the most part though the songs in the same playlist are under the same genre, spiffy.
