    What is the best MP3 file renamer out there? It needs to rename them according to what their tags are. I got some cheap 1GB MP3 player as a late christmas present from someone and it lists MP3s by their filename, and I obviously don't want to go through and rename each MP3 one by one. I tried Flash Renamer, but that didn't even work right.

    I don't like it. How is it supposed to rename my MP3 files according to their tags?

    Does anyone else know of a really good MP3 renamer?

    Thats the only thing it does. If you cant understand that program you seriously don't need to be requesting software you don't know how to use. There is a guide right above the download link for christ sake.

    I second Picard + MusicBrainz.

    Took my entire MP3 collection and, with minimal help from me, I had nicely named folders/mp3's with appropriate ID3 tags!

    My vote definitely goes for Tag&Rename. Really great program. I use it all the time if I get horribly tagged music which doesn't happen anymore thanks to using What

    Tagscanner. It allows you to rename your tags, allows you to find the CD information that correspond with an album, renaming an unknown CD to match, and download covers.

    So then your saying all it does is rename the actual filename according to what the existing tags are? It seemed like a tag renaming program to me. And if I need a guide to use it then I don't want anything to do with it. No need to get pissy about it.


    Anyway, I found a good program that did exactly what I wanted it to do. It is called The GodFather. It is simple to customize exactly how you want it to rename your MP3s. I highly recommend it.

    i like "mp3 tag" cuz it makes it really easy to edit tags based on the folder the mp3 file is stored in.

    edit: it's not free but then again it only takes a few mins to edit your entire collection and you won't need it again for a while.
