Set track number from file name in MP3 music management software


I have .mp3 files, whose names and titles are their track numbers.

  • For example: "Track01.mp3" (the internal title property reads "Track01")

How do I let my MP3 management software know that it's track 1 of a CD? (I'm using Sony's SonicStage to manage my music.)

You need to set the track number tags.

If you didn't mind software specifically to fix tags, you could probably use mp3tag to mass fix the track number tag in the file. Its a little tricky with no obvious deliminator between tracks, unless they are all called Track (tracknumber) however. You'd probably want to use the filename -> tag option, use "track%track%" to use the filename to populate track numbers

The autonumbering wizard option might prove helpful as well.
