    Is there any way to get you to quit double-posting?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    MusicBrainz is a community music metadatabase that attempts to create a comprehensive music information site. You can use the MusicBrainz data either by browsing this web site, or you can access the data from a client program for example, a CD player program can use MusicBrainz to identify CDs and provide information about the CD, about the artist or about related information. You can also use the MusicBrainz Tagger to automatically identify and clean up the metadata tags in your MP3 collections. Find out more in the introduction.

    you can always use winamp to modify them by hand.

    and what kind of crappy service makes you pay by the minute? I've never seen one that needs that.

    Blatant plug....

    Seriously, though.
    If you do a Google search, there's many products that will tag MP3s based on filename or other criteria.
    I use MusicMatch Jukebox's Supertagger. It works pretty good. I haven't had the need to use anything else.

    56k pay by the minute?
    Is there something wrong with you?
    Check Winamp's site and look under plugins. They have something that you could use.
    Quick! To the Popemobile!

    I use mp3tag.de

    visit www.mp3tag.de and download his id3 tagger.

    it does searches on cddb, and you can do wildcard searches... u still need to be connected tho...

    I've got around 6000 left to do... proving a right royal pain in the arse!

    I should have 11,000 tunes nicely sorted then though.
