Hi

I use mp3tag to manually edit all my mp3s, i have one task i have to repeat on alot of files.

In the album field i've typed "Single" for my songs that come from single cds, this gives me problems on my phone. It thinks all these songs come from the same album, and because of that it uses the same album pictures. All my cover art is saved within the mp3 file.

Now i want to copy the song title to the album field, overwriting whatever i've put there in the first place. Only for the songs from single cds of course, i would sort and highlight them.

I've tried different settings with custom actions, but couldn't get it done. I've also read about scripting, but that went beyond my skills unsure.gif

Is this possible, if yes, can you help me with a recipe?

I think you need to read the FAQ here. It has all the simple tasks explained there.
