I’m throwing this out to the podcast audience in the hope that someone might be able to point me in the right direction.
I am currently in the process of fixing all the tags on my giant MP3 collection. I’ve gotten all the full albums fixed, and now I’m onto the singles. However, I have a huge number of loose singles, and close to half of them appear to be without tags. Going through and tagging files individually will take a very, very long time.
So what I’m looking for is a program that will read the name of a file, every one of which is named Artist – Title.mp3, take the artist and title info from the filename and put that into each file’s ID3 tag. I’ve found tons of programs that do the opposite — take the ID3 tag and change the name of the file — but I haven’t found one that will read the filename and parse that name into an ID3 tag.
If anyone out there knows of such a program, post a comment here. My MP3 collection is about 76 gigabytes right now, and the singles take up somewhere between 20 and 30 GB, so anything that will help me avoid going through all those old files individually would be a big help.
