MP3 auto renaming

  Tribal-Wolf 10:34 23 May 2007

I used to use a program called Psychic MP3 which would get info from cddb database and rename a full album in in almost one click. This software doesnt seem to work as well as it did so I was wondering if anyone knew of something else which works the same way?

A good program for converting CDs to MP3 files is CDEX. This also uses the cddb database and is simple to configure. CDEX is available to download free, just Google for it.

Coverting cd's is ok as I can use nero to rip them with the titles etc. The software I was using would rename a folder with mp3's in it and as I have alot of folders/albums from converted tapes and vinyl this would speed things up a great deal. Thanks for your help though scotty :)

CDs have an number which can be read and used to identify the CD. This information is used to obtain the correct data from cddb. If you already have the files as MP3s I am not sure how you can use the cddb database. As far as I know, MP3s do not use a similar identifier.

I don't think this is what you're looking for, but XP can rename a number of folders at once. Select all the folders to be renamed, right-click and choose Rename, type in the new name and press Return. The folders will be renamed to 'new_name', 'new_name(1)', 'new_name(2)' etc.

Pychic MP3 works by gather info such as track length and track number and checks against a cddb if it finds more than one possibility it gives you the choice. It was formerly known as CDDB Tool I think.
