Im posting here because I HAVE to be missing something and I figured someone here would be likely to have an answer. I just got mp3tag.. my main purpose was to find meta data for large numbers of files. Upon using it I hated it. I don't see any way to make this process fast as I can edit things like album and artist in batch already through windows explorer or anywhere else. There are rave reviews everywhere online talking about how easy it makes this process. I decided to ad scripts for discogs as discogs is the perfect place to find track names for my stuff(mostly old funk). I just installed and ran the pone script and spent a few hours trying to find a good way of using it and im still completely stumped how this is suppose to be fast? It seems to me the only way to tag anything is to search ultimately by album and line up the tracks.. well if I knew what album they were from I wouldn't need this. I would have to look up each song to see what album it was on before tagging it which is insane. Now this isn't even the bad part.. the bad part is that even when I do get into the album.. if I have songs selected that aren't in the album there seems to be no way of leaving them out. Sometimes I don't have all the tracks in the album and it doesn't let you skip spaces so something is going to be tagged wrong essentially. So in order to tag things correctly I would need every song from an album and I would have to know exactly which songs they were and sort them by album. I find this insane. The amount of time it would take me to do this would be unacceptable. I simply have folders organized by artist I was hoping to load in and tag quickly. Many are from different random albums and singles so they are just poorly labeled mp3s in folders organized by artist. This seems impossible to accomplish this way.
Now I just got this tonight and im at least smart enough to realize I have to be missing something or doing something wrong. Is there in fact a quick way to tag my files given the situation? My guess based on the unanimous obsession around the net with mp3tag is that there is and im tired and being stupid. PLEASE HELP.
