Best automatic MP3 tagger

Posted on 2011-10-27
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

I have used a million tools to optimize my MP3 collection. Now it has been a long time since I used these tools but would like to update my MP3 collection:
-it should rename case: f.e. MP3 Abba_Super_Trooper_19xx
-it should get album art and set the wright tag

Thanks for your input!

Note: I have already most of my MP3's tagged and put in folders like pop, relax ... there is a tool like media jukebox in which you can adjust the genres but then I still have to manually move the MP3's to the right folder.
I just want to automatically tag them and then drag them to a folder in which they automatically get the "genre" tag of the folder ...

    try winamp
    drop your mp3 on then highlight them while highlighted r/click them and more info
    see the auto tag below
    I would  try one first so you see how long i ttakes, if you do a ton in one go may cause your system to lockup or simply not respond anymore
    just do a few at a time say around 5 or 10
    Here's an example using mine, it uses Grace notes ok

    it should get album art and set the wright tag <<  this maybe a problem if you didnt purchase them
    WMA or audio CD will get the album art through gracenotes because they are DRM, digital rights managed.
    Winamp offers the id 2 tags as well
     the only way to get this now is to pay for the tools they all connect to Amazon or Gracenotes or QT Real Networks etc.
