Auto MP3 file...
Topic: Auto MP3 file renaming - HELP!!
Going thru my MP3s today I noticed that some albums that I have ripped from CD I have not got either the artist name. This is a obviously an issue because when I search for songs by an artist even though I have the track in the library it doesn't return in a search.
Is there some magical software that will analyse an MP3 collection and pull the correct details from the internet and then rename them accordingly?
I like my tracks labelled as follows:
Track Name - Artist Name.mp3
Or have I gotta get all my old CD's out the loft and re-rip them this time taking care to do it properly!??

Basically any application that advertises auto-tagging should get you in the right direction.
EDIT: If the artist is always in the filename, use mp3tag and use a filter to extract the artist name information and write it to the artist ID3 tag. This is probably a lot easier, quicker and more effective.
