Hi all. I have a little problem with my soudtracks collection and my iPod. As you probably know, scrolling a list very fast (through the click-wheel) in the artist / album selection pops up a letter selection menu. Since all my soundtracks files have the prefix "[OST]" in the album field, I cannot use this tool on my iPod to select a letter in the soundtrack album list.

Now, I've noticed tha in the iPod manager preferences there's the possibility to automatically edit the tags when uploading to the iPod. Right now, the album property is set to


Is it possible to rewrite this line to something like: when the tag starts with "[OST]" add the seventh character in front. So an album tag like "[OST] Titanic" would become "T [OST] Titanic" and so on.

Thanks so much!
