## What are my options for migrating my iTunes data into FB2K?

@romor -- you can import statistics from file tags, and foobar2000 does cater for mass tagging very well, so it's very do-able (as per link below).

@ phopu -- Have a look at this post and the subsequent posts (post #204 to #212)

GBNeil managed to get his stats into foobar2000 from iTunes with a little help from his friends

Everything you need should be in those posts.

EDIT:

To calculate the dates in Excel:

1) Number of days from January 1st 1601 to December 31st 1999 = 145,730 (constant)

2) Number of days from 1st January 2000 to "the date you have for %added%" (e.g. 1st October 2010): 3,926 (variable)

3) Add (1) and (2) together gives you the number of days from January 1st 1601 to your date: 145,730 + 3,926 = 149,656

(The reason you do this in 2 parts AFAIR is due to Excel getting confused (#VALUE!) by calculating the number of days by doing 1/10/2010 minus 1/1/1601.)

Now we work out how many "100-nanosecond intervals" there are in a day -- quick answer = 864,000,000,000

4) We multiply 864,000,000,000 by 149,656 = 129302784000000000

i.e. a 64-bit value that represents the number of 100-nanosecond intervals that have elapsed since 12:00 A.M. January 1, 1601 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)

And that is the %added% date in foobar2000's date format.
