Hey i was wondering if there was a software that could help me delete download file tags. I want to deleted multiple files at time sometimes a whole album at a time, for example, if i have a file name like cruck juice-rws.mp3 i want to remove the rws from all files in that album at the same time is this possible. I hate having to change them one by one? I have tired mp3 editor software, but i could not get it to delete the tag off multiple files only one file at a time, but for some reason i could delete the tag off the album file by multiple.

I used that programs if you read my post. I couldn't change the file of multiple files at the same time with that program. I could only change the tag on multiple songs on the album part not the file name part.

That prog will do it

example
cruck juice-rws.mp3
morecruck juice-rws.mp3

convert > filename to filename

old filename pattern
$1-$2

new filename pattern
$1

Since there are 3 dashes in the file name, to be safe I would do

old
$1-$2-$3-$4

new
$1-$2-$3

I've never used the prog so don't hold me accountable, just spent 5 mins to install and figure that out

no luck i couldn't press the ok on the dialog box, so i am thinking the code is wrong. My version i am using is mp3tag v2.44 i am wondering if the tag codes have changed. I will be looking in the help doc to try to figure this out while a waiting a post. :?

If I understand correctly what you are trying to do, this is what I use for renaming multiple files:

Oscar's File Renamer

It lets you edit multiple file names in much the same way that you would edit a text file, allowing you to perform search/replace actions too.
