Hi!

I'm trying to convert my .flac-files to MP3 using LAME and then put them in my mobile mp3-player. The encoding goes perfectly but the problem is that I want the files to automatically be renamed to:

"Artist - Tracktitle.mp3" --> "Oasis - Stand By Me.mp3" etc

I've tried this:

tag.exe --scheme "A - T" *.mp3

But it doesn't seem to work.

I'd appreciate if someone can take 10 seconds and help me get this to work smile.gif

Thanks!

CODE
--rentag          : rename files to match scheme, filename from tag data
--rename <scheme> : rename files to <scheme>, filename generated from old name
...
--move            : when renaming move files to subdirectories
--overwrite       : overwrite existing files when renaming

I'm sorry but that doesn't help...

I already read about all the command line options but I can't get it to work...

Could you please tell me why tag.exe --scheme "A - T" *.mp3
does not work?

As far as I understand it your command line will attempt to set tags from the filename, expecting the format "<artist> - <title>.xxx".

If you have run that command you have probably screwed your ARTIST and TITLE tags, depending on the file name format you currently have. If so, you will need to retag your files before renaming them.

If and when your tags are in proper order you should be able to use the command:

TAG.EXE --overwrite --recursive --rentag "A - T" *.mp3

It's probably best to test on a few copies first. I'm no expert.
