Editing or renaming file names

I can't seem to get anything to work in changing file names. Neither replace, regular expressions, or format.

When I select what tag to edit, I'm given three choices:

%_FILENAME%
%_FILENAME_EXT%
%FILENAME%

I'm not sure where these strings came from, but even a simple replace doesn't work choosing any of them.

I'm sure its something simple I'm missing. Hints or guidance requested.

WinXP, using Mp3tag v2.46a

thanks,

The correct field is _FILENAME without any % signs.

yes... that works. Thanks.

Maybe a couple more questions:

= = Why does the field have a "_" ?

= = I didn't make up the three other names. I'm sure they were somehow "suggested" by mp3tag. Do they have some other uses??

thnx again.

.

Mp3tag provides some handling of computer or disk system related values as pseudo tag fields, which have a leading underline character, e. g. _FILENAME.
For more pseudo tag fields take a look into the Mp3tag help manual.
