  • Automatic mp3 Artist Information Lookup

    uploaded all my music to my computer via Sonic Stage (Sony). Well I want to switch to an iPod. All of my files were in .oma form (ATRAC 3 plus). According to sony .oma is a one way street. After scowering for many hours I finally found a program on like page 30 of google written by an individual to export the .oma tracks to mp3. Only problem is I lose my ID3 tags. Now all of my music is like

    Track 1 (2).mp3
    Track 2 (6).mp3

    Is there any auto tagging software out there sophisticated enough to handle this or at least part way? If one has like a 50% chance of getting it right that would be fine as I could fix as I went along but I have roughly 1200 songs I need to tag and doing it manually is suck. I need track name at a minimum. Track name, artist, and album would be cool. Preferably free, but a paid program is fine too.

    Note, I don't even know if this is possible so since all tag information is stripped.

    Yes, there are a few good ones out there..

    A good free one is:
    http://musicbrainz.org/tagger/download.html

    You will need to create an account on their site, and input it in the software.

    Another good program for this is Tag&Rename

        If it misses them, let it re-scan..It will come up with the best match, and let you manually select what it is. Just select the appropriate one, and manually tag it.

              Seems like a cool program. It does't identify genres?
