Hello, dear all.
I have many files in MP3 format and I need to rename them. Batch mode, because do it manually is not possible, because they are very numerous. Not only MP3, but maybe other audio formats too, like Wav, Ogg, etc.
Do you know any programs ( free or not ) that can handle that for me?
If its possible, the most straightforward / intuite programs.
Thanks for your help.

The first one I have used in the past and really liked it. The next two just came up in a search, so I really don't know. The first is $20US,
but you can use it for a trial period free. The other two I believe are freeware. You can find others by searching for ' file renamer '.
Rename them how? Alphabetically/Chronologically? or taking info from metadata? Or something else? (based on excel sheet, etc)
There are many that can do the first (1forA file renamer is one of my faves), but much fewer that can do the others (and none that are freeware, AFAIK). Also, since metadata occurs differently with different formats, not all are supported.
Mp3Tag will rename files based on their tags, and/or it'll modify the tags based on the file name. If the file name isn't the way I prefer it (artist/title in the wrong order or something similar), I'll often use MP3Tag to modify the approprate tag fields based on the file name if need be, then use the tags to rename the files the way I want them.
Other than that, I'm not sure how psychic you need a program to be.
Mp3tag supports the following audio formats:
Advanced Audio Coding (aac)
Free Lossless Audio Codec (flac)
Monkey's Audio (ape)
Mpeg Layer 3 (mp3)
MPEG-4 (mp4 / m4a / m4b / iTunes compatible)
Ogg Vorbis (ogg)
IETF Opus (opus)
OptimFROG DualStream (ofs)
Tom's Audio Kompressor (tak)
True Audio (tta)
Windows Media Audio (wma)
I don't think you can tag wave files so you'd be out of luck there (maybe convert them to flac).
If you try Mp3Tag, I'd recommend making a backup copy of the files before you start playing around.... just in case it does "odd things" while you're getting to know it.
