Unsupported filename characters


#1

First let me apologies if this has been covered before, but i did a quick search of the forums and couldn’t find the answer to my question. I have an a load of album with “:” in the title. When I ask Mp3tag to replace the filename with “%artist% - %album% - %title%” is simply removes the “:” from the filename as Windows XP doesn’t support this character. What I would like Mp3tag to do is replace “:” with “;”. For example:

Album Title
Young Lust: The Aerosmith Anthology

What I want the file name to be:
Aerosmith - Young Lust; The Aerosmith Anthology - Ain't Enough.mp3

File Name before Mp3tag rename:
Aerosmith - Young Lust The Aerosmith Anthology - Ain't Enough.mp3

Is there any way to get Mp3tag to do this?
