MP3 Rename - a program to rename your MP3s to match their ID3 tags

A simple C++ (MFC) program that can rename your MP3 files to match their ID3 tags.

Sample Image - MP3Rename_screen.jpg


This is my first upload, so please be gentle :)

In a nutshell, I created this program because I wanted to rename my MP3s and I didn't want to have to do them all by hand. I did find another program on the Internet, but I thought it was kind of chinsy, so I made my own. This program lets you browse to a specified directory, and rename any MP3s you want there to match their ID3 tags. It does error checking for invalid characters in the filenames, duplicate filenames, and MP3s where the entire tag is missing.

For more info, download it and look at the help dialog. Hope you like it!

The tool is under development, hence the menu items (except File|Exit and Help|About Smile | :) ) don't do anything yet.

I've yet to encounter a problem with over 50,000 MP3 files I've indexed and cataloged using MP3 Pal, but that doesn't mean it's bug free. Could you make the problem file available to me? That would help me track down the bug.
