I'm a new user of advanced renamer and wonder if it could solve this issue.

I have a bunch of mp3 files that have no ID3 tags.

However they are named in the following pattern:

track. artist - title
eg 01. The Beatles - Two Of Us

I was wondering if the filename parts could be copied into the the appropriate metadata fields.

This is the opposite of file renaming but I'm hoping it can be done.

Advanced Renamer uses ExifTool but only has read access to tags. You will have to use another application - the full version of ExifTool is available free from

It looks confusing when you first encounter it but there is a lot of help available on the ExifTool Forum with responses from the author (Phil Harvey). Best to use a Google Search.
