Dear all
First thank you so much for the great utility ,
my scenario is : I have about 25 folders for artists , each folder has about 100 mp3 files , named ( 001.mp3 , 002.mp3 , 003.mp3 ,,,,,,100.mp3 )
I want to change all 001.mp3 files in all folder to 001-first.mp3 , and 002 in all folders to 002-second.mp3 and so on
i can do all files in one folder file by file . but I wish I can then make the change to other folders automatically

can anyone help please ?

hi,

i would do it in two separate steps:

1. rename all folders into the required number:
first folder -> 01
second folder -> 02, ... whatever you want to set

2. rename the files in all folders with
new name: <Name>_<DirName:1>.<Ext>
(001.mp3 -> 001_02.mp3)
you can also create more sophisticated names like 001_[02].mp3

You can make a batch file with a for loop that executes ARen through command line for every folder,
OR, if you're not G.Lambany the scripting God himself, you can just select all the folders you want to rename, right click on them and select "Add to Advanced Renamer" and then do your thing

You can either add all your files with aaron method, or use a *.mp3 or similar search in windows explorer in the root folder that will list all your audio files, then drag and drop the files into AR.

Then, you run this script on all the files. It simply convert the number in the filename to ordinal (up to 100 or one hundreth), so no need to worry about order and multiple files with same number in the same AR file list.

Dead simple script, really.
