I have a few GB's of MP3's that still need to be organized. Is there a program that can change the file names to Artist - Title.mp3 and also edits the tags?

Thanks. I will check those out. I know many programs that rename ID3 tags, but I need one that also changes the file name.

I tried 30 programs; none of them worked properly.
As it turns out Musicmatch also has a file rename feature. I already knew it supported CDDB tagging.

I think I am gonna select all music at once and hope it doesn't screw up. Maybe I should make a backup first

This is gonna take a while. I decided not to make a backup, because all files are spread across tens of folders, which also contain plenty of other gigabytes. I just selected my entire partition.

"Connectivity error..." at 1100 out of 1304", grrrr

Gonna try again. This time I only selected the first 500, then do the other files afterwards.

Currently it is looking up the proper tags (artist, track, title, genre, year,...). After completion I will click the "rename files" button and select "artist" and "title" with " - " seperator. (Artist - Title.mp3).

It seems to have worked. But there are still many unidentified songs. Also, if the file name is Dj Name, it will not rename it to DJ Name. Very annoying.

That's a great tool. Works better and much faster than MusicMatch.

After tagging all MP3's using MusicMatch I still have to check all files because there are many wrong tags.

I clicked "rename files" in MusicMatch, but it crashed half way.
