    I tried searching the forums, but because the 4-letter-or-more search limitation, it didn't leave me with many options...

    Anyway, I have a bunch of MP3's that I have ripped from CDs (that I do own), but they have no tag data. Is there an ID tagger out there that will create the tags from the filename?

    CDDB and iTunes would automatically look up the id3 tags before ripping the CD.

    Since you've already converted them to mp3s though, take a look at the MusicBrainz tagger. It's worked well for me in the past. :)

    I used TagScanner before. A good little program that gets the job done. :D

    ultratagger rocks .... it uses the freedb database to look up complete albums that are not tagged ... truly amazing. look for it using your google-fu.

    My favourite is Tag

    I think it is the smoothest and also the most adaptive to filenames.

    There is also Mp3 Tag Tools. You can find it at sourceforge.net.

    Thanks All!

    I tried Ultratagger and it seemed to work for what I wanted it to do for now. I'll probably give the others a try since I have about 8GB of MP3s left to tag. Ultratagger is kinda clumsy if you have lots of sub-folders to go through. The one that uses an on-line database sounds like a good bet if it works like it should. All I really want is a batch mode where the Artist and Title is derived from the filename (my files are saved as "Artist - Title.mp3") and saved in the original location no matter which sub-folder they are in.

    Recently got a new Alpine deck (CDA-9815) and it plays MP3s, so I'm compiling CDs now. I could just browse the titles by filename, but the tag data is nicer. :)


    Off topic: By the way, the loss of user data here sucked. Sorry to hear about that. Glad everything seems to be up and running ok. Bad that I have to start my post count all over though. I was at 7 hundred something.
