Advanced Renamer is an incredible program.
I have used it a zillion times to standardize my music files. Here's my quandary. I use WinAmp for my music collection. (I'm hoping that someone will buy the program). Once I have fixed any issues with a music file name, then I have to make the same corrections manually in WinAmp. I realize that I could use the file name in instead of the title name to identify music in WinAmp. Unfortunately, when I do this, I bring with it the manually numbering I have added with Advanced Renamer.
The dumb question is, "Can Advanced Renamer" alter the title as it alters the file name? I realize that the smart answer is to stop being so anal, but as Popeye sez, " I yam what I yam".
Thank you for your work and vigilance in keeping this program top notch.

I often get requests about using the same technology from Advanced Renamer to make a new program or an extension to Advanced Renamer which allows altering of ID3 tags in MP3. I want to focus my work on the file level attributes and not extend the program to do more stuff that alters the content of the files themselves.

There's probably no need to re-invent the wheel here; there are tons of programs that already do what you're looking for. I think both MediaMonkey free edition and foobar player have the ability to tag files based on their names. I'm sure they aren't the only ones, but they're the ones I know of offhand.

MediaMonkey is one I really like, it also allows you to do things like select a group of files in an unnamed folder, and look up what album they are, so it can do things like add artist/title/cover to a group of files named "track1, track2, track3" as long as they're in album order and the "correct" lengths.
