I plan of adding new tags to all of my music folders after removing all the current ones with id3kill.
I have downloaded the latest version of mp3tag and dont know exactly how to use the software? Tried the FAQ and still cant get the hang of it so im asking for your kind help in taking me though it step by step.
I have 2,386 Albums (Folders) and 33,461 Tracks (Files)
I have it arranged like so...
With the tracks like this...
How would i write the tags to match the way the artist, year, album and tracks are currently formatted?
How to write the tags to multiple folders/files bearing in mind the amount of music i have
How to add album art using the JPEG in each folder
Your help will be greatly appreciated on this guys!
Assuming all your albums are held under
The following format string works
F:\MyDocuments\sweep\My Music\%artist% - %year% - %album%\%track% - %title%
I tested this with one track and the artist year album are populated
Basically it works on the full path. You could start up by dragging single tracks over into mp3tag and saving
Then doing a folder for the whole album at a time
Then doing an album for an artist
and if your feeling really brave, the folder that contains your whole music collection
1 Just cos it worked with one, doesn't mean it's foolproof
2 You will end up with track numbers such as 01, 02 etc. I'm not sure if that causes problems with players that expect them to be 1,2 etc
Haven't done it myself but I recall that you can add "dummy" fields in your naming structure so that it ignores certain parts of the file name. Maybe the OP can separate out the tracks that have CD1,2, etc. and create tags for them separately using this approach.
