    Default Help: Renaming 1000+ tracks : [ Yeeesh!

    Hello again,
    Edit* A guy gave me some CD's :eek:.

    If you don't mind, what is the easiest way of renaming 100 CD's worth of tracks?

    Much appreciated,
    -Digi

    you can use an apple script to do a batch remove of specific counts of characters. or you could use trainspotter / musicbrainz picard to dl the correct info and modify the id3, or the filename.

    if you do the id3 tags, there are more options to do it right, and a nice frontend will just read those and disregard the actual filename.

    Thank you kind sir,
    I did google before, but since I didn't know how to correctly put it. I was getting off results. There is a lot of file re-namers out there appearently. I went with the method of deleting the 1st few characters in the title using a quick program called Antrenamer. Man, its so simple thinking back all those hours I would sit there mind numbly rename tracks all individually : [.

    Thanks you saved me a hell of alot of time and frustration!

    are you going to play all those singles? I dont library things for the sake of having a big collection...listen as you go...keep the ones you like...rename only the ones you keep...

    I use FileRenamer:

    http://www.filerenamer.net/

    It works great. Find & replace, add prefixes/suffixes, delete a set number of characters from the file name (starting at the start or the end of the file name).

    Use this in conjunction with MP3Tag and all your file naming/tagging needs are sorted!

    I suck it up and do it manually.

    It's the only way I know it's going to be 100% correct. But alas, it is a pain in the ass.

    That being said, what you're doing is illegal and while I realize it's something that was "kind", it's also something to be said to building your own collection legally.
