    Hey !

    I used a program to add id3 info to some mp3's but it downloaded wrong info and the thing is that it changed the files name too.

    is there a program that can repair it ? like finding the right id3's of each file and thus, renaming the files back ?

    thanks.

    I've used the MusicBrainz Tagger in the past. I found that it works pretty well for most types of English music. It basically compares the "accoustic fingerprint" (TRM ID) of the song against its online database, and tags the song if there's a match. You can also configure it to rename the files based on specific ID3 tags.

    You're going to have to manually fix everything. It did it for a few albums I have too.

    But it's not a bad program because this was only about 30 songs out of 1500.

    Wow, you guys are brave using that program. I fed it 40 songs out of my collection and it only ID'd 30 of them and found 2 it wanted to upload my ID3 data on. Those 2 songs were very popular and should already have been in the database.

    Since that database is built on user uploads it can contain major amounts of bad info. I'm uninstalling it now....

    PS luish. You get to re ID them by hand. Last time I had to do ID's by hand I used musicmatch but that was 6 years ago.

    Well I have a huge MP3 collection (over 250 GB of the stuff) and I am always renaming the files because I am ana* with folders and organisation and stuff...

    Anyway....I use Tag&Rename to fix all my audio files.

    It's awsome and does everything I need it to: http://www.softpointer.com/tr.htm

    Give it a go...it may help your problem.
