This sounds to me as you are not a proper user for the Mp3tag application. <_<
But have no fear, for me it was also heavy at the beginning.
The best way to learn the usage of Mp3tag is the way of small steps, so start to go and try to solve some small task.
Beside reading the manual do read the forum messages. Read what other users did ask and what proposals they got and comprehend it on a test file.

Hi xChris,

The screenshot didn't seem to post. Could you try again? Once you browse to the file you want to attach and select it, don't forget to hit the "UPLOAD" button.

I'm pretty sure I know what you need but I want to see it to be sure. I will then post a step-by-step procedure for you.

The image below is just a test to see if the attachment feature worked correctly, and it did.
