i have several thousand mp3s that are unnamed and unordered, they are within their respective album folders, but the songs don't have song numbers etc. Is there a quick and easy way to batch rename all of these mp3s?
Are you talking about fixing the id3 tags? Or do you mean changing the name of the files to reflect their track numbers in an album? Either way there is no quick and easy way. I recently tagged and organized 90gb of music for a friend. I developed scripts for various functions. It took 3 weeks. He wanted to be able to use MPD with an MPD client on his Droidx. He can now play whatever he has on his home computer wherever he is. But no, there is no quick and dirty way to do it. I used Wiki pages to access information about album tracks, year, etc. Good luck.
Thanks for the replies guys. I tried that easytag, it almost seemed as if it would work perfectly since it can rename files and add a track number, but unfortunately, even on an album by album basis, it renamed the songs in the wrong order. It seems Sharpy's solution is the only reliable one atm, unless anyone has any better suggestions?
