I need to tag mp3
James

Aye, but why? Can you not just upload your mp3s to your player and organise
them some other way? You can with my ace Creative Zen Player...

Just remember u canny get an 8 track for your puter J 73

To answer yer question falseface, of the CD's I ripped there was a built in search for the database so I never had to tag them but you can tag mp3's in Winamp manually. Bloody tedious with a DVD full of them though.
falseface

how do you do it in winamp. I will be doing it a album at a time

Highlight all the music you want to tag in the window, shift or control and click, then right click properties



and you get this



Then get typing or use the Auto tag button to find the information for you

or use this free app which even goes and finds the titles for you

2TB of music and counting I could not live without it...

Now that's handy for the terminally lazy like me  
AlanM

I do mine in iTunes. Its pretty good and also looks after my podcast subscriptions.
cybers

Has I-tunes stopped attaching DRM to your own music where it means you can only use it on your pc and ipod when you tag it.

I stopped using it for this very reason as i have a Yamaha media streamer connected to my hi-fi and it would not play anything that had been tagged in I-tunes. Erm had to use another tool to reclaim all my music including the stuff i bought from the I-tunes store.
AlanM

Haven't come across that behaviour before.

I seem to be caught in a loop of 80's albums I trawl music stores ebay itunes you name it. then it gets ripped to mp3 and the disk placed in the loft.
I think my house is sinking lmao...

Anyone got any H2O on Cd they are willing to part with LMK lol as this is the real quest and its how my woes started almost 15 years ago ...

I have more bread crates than Allied Bakeries
Hugo Drax

I have a Vista media center PC hooked up to my TV and hifi. I have gradually been ripping my CDs onto it in lossless format and it is wonderful to have all that music instantly accessible without having to search through cupboards, open jewel cases etc.

Highly recommended.

James to the rescue please!!!!

I persuaded my friend to give away her old pc for someone in need instead of scrapping it and now we are having troubles wiping her hard drive of personal data, problem is she has already deleted it ( sigh ) so the wonderful links you have posted aren't of any use as it seems, unless one wants to spend 40 quid.
Problem is that the pc runs on windows 2000 which she doesn't have the OS discs for any longer, and all I can offer her is XP, pc is too old for that though. We thought just wiping it all and then re-installing it would be an option but that's a no go.

Just now she is sitting there all tense and grumbly because it took her ages to connect her old pc to the internet and I am stuck!!!!!!

HEEEAAALP PLEASE  
Hugo Drax

Do you need a Windows 2000 install CD poodie? PM me if you do.
James

If you want to simply wipe the hard disc, all you need is a Windows 2000 or Win XP
CD - stick the disc in, reboot the PC, (you may need to enter the BIOS to change
the boot sequence to make sure it boots from the CD) and press a key when it displays
the message 'Boot from CD?'

This should take you into the Windows set-up. In here is an option to delete any
existing partitions. This will wipe the disc clean and you then create a new partition(s)
and re-install windows. I can give you a Win 2000 CD if you need one.

Thank you Hugo & James!
Will go over now and check what can be done, maybe there is a small chance and I can do what James suggested but with my XP OS, although I was told it might not work well on such an old PC.
Will let you know how I get on

It'll work but might be slow as a week in the jail

XP likes lots of memory. Though, I suppose it also depends on the CPU...
