Adding info to a filename


#1

Hi, can anyone tell me how I can convert a list of filenames starting with something like this:

01 - this song

22 - that song

to:

Jimi Hendrix Experience - 01 - this song

I haven't seen an example of that so far. Thanks if you can help.

If you really ONLY want to convert the filenames for a single artist then use the converter
filename - filename
Enter as first mask:
%1
and as target mask:
Jimi Hendrix Experience - %1

The disadvatage of this method is that it will work only for tracks by Jimi Hendrix Experience.
For another artist you would have to enter a different name.

It would be a superior proceeding to first import information into the file-internal tags.
For this use the converter "Filename - Tag". The mask would be
%track% - %title%
for filenames of the pattern "01 - this song".
If you have stored your files in a directory structure like
Jimi Hendrix Experience\01 - this song
then use a mask like this:
%artist%\%track% - %title%

You may then use the converter "Tag - Filename"
with a mask like this:
%artist% - %track% - %title%

Thanks for the info, I can probably figure out what to do from what you gave me. I wish I had this utility 19,000 MP3 albums ago! :laughing:
