I'm using MP3Tag for my flash drive to organize my music in a convient way for my car stereo. It reads the file names but it only reads up to 8 characters, anything past that and it gets confused and won't organize them correctly. I believe it only works with the old 8.3 format. I'm currently using the Tag - Filename for this and the following is a sample of my output.

E:\%artist%\%album%%track%

Is there a way I could limit the number of characters on the album section to 6 characters. That would be perfect for the 8.3 format.

AAAAAA##.mp3

This would save a LOT of time.

You can use the $left() function to get the first n characters of a string.

$left(x, n)
