Anyone know of software that assigns the correct names to songs automatically?

Found 2nd Nov 2009
I have a few albums on my pc which all have track names such as "Track 1", "Track 2" etc. Is there any software out there that will do something along the lines of let me select which album this is from a list and then it will download the correct file names and automatically rename the files to the correct name?

Most software needs a person to label tracks to an extent. Automated software tends to get it wrong (it guesses).
Use media monkey.

When I used to rip cd's into itunes it used to search for the song name online on some database. not sure if you can do that with tracks? worth a try?

does this method change the song name or just the referenced name within itunes? I want the actual file to be renamed, not something specific to any one media program.

+1 for media monkey, great software, but time consuming.

Well I may have just found a solution to your problem and mine. In fact, I say MAY have but I've just used it and it does exactly what i want. Tag&Rename 3.5.3 is the program. It lets you select an album, then you just hit 1 of a few relevant buttons, type in the artist and album name (or just one of those 2), then it gets the track information from a various list of sources including Amazon. You select which album it is from a list of hits related to the artist/album name that you input.

All you have to do is click "get info" and it instantly adds all relevant ID3 tags. Then, with 1 more button, it gets the track titles from the ID3 tags and renames the file to that. You can even use preset masks to change how to track is renamed.

I too have been looking for this type of software for years now. So glad I found it!
