To match the album names and the release date? Does anyone know a program that does that? Like for example, if File "A" has 20 tracks in it(and the album name is "YYY" for example, and the release date is 1990) it would change it to YYY(1990) or something like that. Anybody knows a program that does something similar to that? I'd do it myself if I didn't have so many music. I need it to do that for my whole music library. Anyway, thanks.

foobar2000 + file operations + title-formatting syntax

It can do that and most other things you might imagine.

Mp3tag will also do this sort of thing.

Can Tagscanner or MP3tag use functions in the folder renaming? I love those programs but have had to go back to foobar for sorting classical (abbreviating conductor or album artist, performers, etc into the folder name).

Yes, as is prominently publicised on both of their respective sites:

TagScanner is a multifunction program for organizing and managing your music collection. It can edit tags of mostly state-of-the-art audio formats, rename files based on the tag information, generate tag information from filenames, and perform any transformations of the text from tags and filenames.

Rename files from tags Rename files based on the tag information and import tags from filenames.

Thanks, it looks like MP3Tag definitely does, but I'm having trouble finding syntax for TagScanner. I know it can dynamically rename according to tags, not to mention the right click menu ("Rename folder by tag"), but I've never seen it able to use functions. E.g.
CODE
%album% - $abbr(%conductor%,12), %date%\%filename%

But I could be totally out to lunch..

I don't think it has that level of functionality.

I misread the degree of control you want; I apologise.

It should still work for the OP's specific request though.
