  • MP3's with no tags

    Without having the CD's to rip from is there any way i can quickly fill the name, artist etc tags of my mp3's which dont have em as it's annoying seeing (untitled blah blah) track1 in my list.

    Also that makes it a little hard to select the right song as you dont know what the hell it is.

    Would love to know this asap as i have almost 7000 tracks that need titles in this way.
    Cheers guys

    Use Tag & Rename software, but it'll cost you time anyway for 7000 songs.

      For my collection, it took me an INCREDIBLY long time to tag everything, even with software. I recommend MP3Tag (http://www.mp3tag.de/en/) for Windows platforms, and EasyTAG (http://easytag.sourceforge.net/) for Linux users (FreeBSD users can find the port in /usr/ports/audio/easytag).

          Be careful, I had to rename/retag about half my music files after MusicBrainz screwed them up.

            You have to approve the changes so it's your fault

                But then if I have to go through and double-check every single file to make sure it's got it right, there's no ****ing point in letting it do it automatically, I may as well have just done it manually in the first place (and I wish I had)

                      I had good result on 75% of my files, the others I had to manage myself. This soft is the king of ID3 tags

                        I went on a mission to make sure all of my 6000 songs had good tags - album, year, track#, everything. It took me several months but it was worth it. Now I just make sure each new song I add has good tags before it goes on the carputer.

                            Do your files have some kind of good scheme to their naming?

                            All my files are named:

                            Artist\Album\Artist - Album - TrackNo - TrackTitle.mp3

                            so I (now) use Tag&Rename to fill in the right tags
