I would convert the filenames in 3 steps.

Step 1: Sort your mp3 in mp3tag by filename, assuming you start with the songs
artist..., select and mark all your songs named like this

Step 2: Use ALT-3 (Converter filename - filename)
Mask formatstring for old filename
%1... %2 - %3 - %4

Mask formatstring for NEW filename
%1 %4

Check if the preview shows your desired filenames. Press OK.

Step 3:
Repeat Step 2:
Mask formatstring for old filename
%1... %2 - %3 - %4

Mask formatstring for NEW filename
%1 %3

Check if the preview shows your desired filenames. Press OK.

I think it's about the tags Title and Artist, not the filename.
