    I've been computing for about 10 years now and never really tried to change an mp3 file name... Until today!!
    You can't do it!
    So I figured I would try some shareware renaming apps.... Holy Crap! Batch-conventions,&//&( Stuff!
    I just want to right click and rename the file.

    Is there an easy way?

    What happens when you try renaming?

    When you right click to rename an MP3 file, you must type the file extension type (.mp3). That was all it was.
    Perhaps this will help someone else who freaks on this like I did.

    Thanks yall

    it is pretty tedious :) I found that Tag&Rename works good, can also tag using CDDB, and CDNow i think it is (or could be amazon).

    I've renamed tens of thousands of MP3 files, and it's never been an issue. :D Of course, I also use Tag & Rename, an excellent utility. :)
