Mp3tag Version: 2.52



Clearly I'm new.

The problem. I dl free audio books to an old, tiny, cheap MP3 player so I can listen to them at work. The problems are the player can only display a very short file name and uses some weird settings to list the 'songs' and many times this means the files are not in the proper order. To fix this I have to do three things:

1) Change the tract number. The FAQ showed me how to do this.

2) Change the title to something very short and put a number after it, e.g.. Mystery 01, Mystery 02. I have searched the forum and the FAQ and can't figure out how to do this. I know this can not be that difficult. There must be a 'string' I can just put in the "Title" block which would allow me to do it.

3) Change the file name to match title. I use another program to do this. Can MP3TAG do this?

I would start by filling in the ALBUM field for all of the files in a book, containing the name without the track number. Select all of the files in the book, then in the left-hand tag panel, fill in the ALBUM field and hit Save mt_save.png.

After you've added the ALBUM name and the track numbers, you can change both the TITLE and file name. You want to use Mp3tag 'Actions' to do this, so read the help on this topic. Create an action group (mt_format.png button) containing two actions in the following order:

Action type: Format value
Field: TITLE
Format string: %album% $num(%track%,2)

Action type: Format value
Field: _FILENAME
Format string: %title%

If you have filled the TITLE field so that it looks like it should, you can easily rename the file.
Use the converter Tag-Filename with the mask
%title%
The converter has a preview which makes it probably easier to figure out what is to be expected.
The second action that jjjohnson has listed has the same result, though, yet no preview.
