So I have this large selection of mp3s. Some have the original name, some have "Track 01" etc. some are named by friends "this is the good one." I've been looking for a free program that runs on Windows 8.1 that can not only tag the file, but also helps me to rename the actual file based on what the metadata from databases say. I'm also hoping to be able to group them together in albums if I have complete or partial. I DON'T WANT A PROGRAM TO REPLACE MY MEDIA PLAYER, etc. I'm looking to group them and then burn them to a disc (while having them identified without 3 billion Track 01s) and clean up my computer. I have Picard by Muskbrandz which can tag them but I don't know how to do the above. I've tried media Monkey but I guess I don't have good instructions to figure that one out. I've looked at mp3tag but that doesn't look like it will do what I want. If any of these will work, can you point me where I can go to learn how to use them. Tutorials on youtube seem to focus on how to create a new playlist.

Thanks for your help.

Mp3tag would be the best tool for what you're trying to do. Using Mp3tag is pretty easy, but if you get stuck look here http://help.mp3tag.de/ and http://forums.mp3tag.de/index.php?showforum=12.

some have "Track 01" etc. some are named by friends "this is the good one."
You can look up the info by going to Tag Sources and Amazon or MusicBrainz but you need at least the artist or album to do a search.

helps me to rename the actual file
You do that with Convert Tag - Filename.

I'm also hoping to be able to group them together in albums if I have complete or partial.
Once you have the album name you can use it to change the path of the files to place them in the same album folder.
