Applications :: Convert MP3 File Name To ID3 Tag


Pulled an old hard disk from a windows box, and all the file names for my tunes are in order, but these are not the ID3 tags, so as soon as imported into iTunes, its just showing 'Track 1, track 2 etc' Is there an app i can run these files through, to convert the file name to ID3 tags before importing?

Applications :: How To Change Mp3 Title Tag Into File Name?
I have hundreds of mp3 files that have unique file names in succession. i.e. mysong8001.mp3 and mysong8002.mp3 and mysong8101.mp3 where "80" and "81" are the year and "01" and "02" reflect the order of the files for a given year.

The person that created the files did not add any tags except for a Title. Unfortunately all of the files for 1980 have the Title "1980" and all of 1981 have the Title "1981". Once imported into iTunes, there is no way to distinguish the files or their order.

Is there a way to change the id3 tag info for the Title to be the same as the file name? So that in iTunes, the Title would be "mysong8001"?

I would prefer to change this for all files in a directory rather than me having to open each file's info and manually change it. That would take days to weeks to accomplish.

One other thing that would be nice is that as a group of files, that I could also change other tags as well that would be common to all of them like the "Artist", "Album", etc.

Any suggestion for an app (on a Mac) that would let me do this would be appreciated.

Applications :: Name For Non ID3 Mp3 Tracks In Itunes
I recently had a HD disaster, all my music (aprox 50000 tracks) got lost. With FileSalvage I got them back, problem is they all lost their id�s, now they are displayed by number. Musicrenamer works on the ones with id3 tag, but I�m still up the creek without the proper instrument. Itunes wont let me get the tracknames as the music wasnt imported using itunes. Anyone know if there�s a way around this? Third party software to get tracknames? I need acces to gracenote or similar database..

Applications :: MP3 Ripping And Tag Editing
For a community service project I volunteered to help out someone with their audio book. The audiobook is about getting your life in balance by looking through the lenses of the ancient Navajo Coyoteway ceremony. All the sales are going to charity and I need to help put it in the proper format on a website. Here are the instructions I've been given: "Rip the cd's into a relatively high compression mp3 format and tag each file. There are between twenty and thirty files on each cd and the idea is that tagging them for an mp3 player will be very helpful for reading the book and listening to the mp3's together.

Each file needs to be tagged in a way that references a specific chapter in the book. The idea of the relatively high compression will enable the smallest possible zip file (containing all three cd's) to be downloaded." I think I understand most of that but I don't really know where to start. They specifically told me to not use iTunes, I don't know why but that is what they told me. There are three CD's, each with about 30 tracks and I need to put each track in mp3 format and tag each file according to the page number of the book.

OS X :: How To View And Work With ID3 Tag Info In The Finder
in Windows a folder can use ID3 tag information from music files for display in a column view just like you would see music displayed in iTunes. (Title, Artist, Album, etc.) I have an extensive library of music (600+ GB) and sometimes I'm working with multiple external drives. I'm also constantly adding to the collection as I get new music. Being able to see all of this data in the OS window makes managing the music on multiple drives much easier. We're talking about folders with 1000's of songs in them. I don't want to have to set up mutiple iTunes libraries for each external drive and deal with the headache of switching back and forth between them.

ITunes Mac :: Info Tags Are Stored As Id3 Tags In The Mp3 File And Which Are Stored Elsewhere?
What items in the info tags are stored as id3 tags in the mp3 file and which are stored elsewhere in a database specific to iTunes? Many of my files have id3 v2.3 tags. If I open these in other players (e.g. Soundjam) I don't see all the tags I see in iTunes even though Soundjam can edit 2.3 tags and the files keep those attributes from session to session in iTunes. If I edit the tags in something like Soundjam and then go back to iTunes will they lose the extended attributes (disc number, album artist, part of compilation) or are some of those stored in an iTunes file? I figure something like artwork must be stored in a separate database since I hope I am not adding a 100k of art to each file!

I want to share my music files between iTunes when I am running OSX and Soundjam when I am booted to OS9 but don't want to mess up my files for extended iTunes capability if I do something to them in OS9.iTunes 7.5

G4 Quicksilver dual 800 MHz 2x120 GBHDs 1.5GBRAM dual-boot 10.4.11 9.2.2

Applications :: Need To Convert WMV To MP3
I am an audio transcriptionist. I am new to mac. For my transcription I use a program called ExpressScribe [URL]. It works great on mac. I need this program because it allows me to use my foot pedal. Using a foot pedal increases my speed. Increased speed means increased salary. Here's the problem: I have a rush file due tomorrow. It came to me in an .wmv format. I cannot ask for it to be converted. This file automatically downloads into quicktime. I have to convert this file to an mp3 so I can open it with my ExpressScribe. I tried using "switch" (offered by the same company that brought me ExpressScribe), however because the file downloads automatically into quicktime I don't know what to do. I need to find a way to save this to my desktop as an mp3 or open it in itunes.

Applications :: Convert .flac To .MP3?
I need to convert some lossless .flac files to .MP3 for use in iTunes. The .flac files are of lossless quality obviously and well over 1,000 kbps.

I've searched around and read that XLD is the best app for this. Great!

But, when I use it, the output file is a .wav (I want .MP3, how do I do this) and still encoded at well over 1,000 kbps. How do I make it like 256 kbps and .MP3?

ITunes Mac :: Cannot Convert ID3 Tags To None
I used to be able to convert my mp3s' ID3 tags to "None" then reconvert it to version 2.3 without any hassle. I'd have to add my own artwork and fix some of the longer track titles, but it worked for me. Since the last update, (iTunes 9.2 (61)), my iTunes won't let me convert my tags to "None". I've read in the past that you can't simply convert a v2.1 file to v2.3 without first stripping the id3 tag to "None". The tracks I'm trying to convert are definitely mp3 and not AAC or WAV files.

Applications :: Convert WMA To MP3 And Unzip RAR Files
Being a relatively new Mac user, I'm not sure what the best freeware would be for what I want to do, and I don't want to download twenty different programs before I find the right one. So, I'm looking for recommendations.

1) I want to find a program that lets me easily convert .wma files to .mp3's.
2) I also want to find a free, simple program that allows me to unzip .rar files. (This is another case with mp3's, except I have twenty songs zipped into one, and can only play them with VLC RAR-Loader.)
