View Full Version : Help please in renaming files

I have read numerous posts and experimented unsuccessfully with a "simple" issue. I would like to batch rename filenames for about 2k cds while preserving the current four level directory structure. I would like the filnames to be: track (number), artist, title.

Somehow, no matter which "root path" and dynamic naming options I use in the "Arrange Audio" codec, I can't make this happen.

Could someone suggest what I should be doing?

Thanks in advance.

Use [origpath]

?

I tried that [again] but:

1. My original path = I:[drive]\Lossless[folder]\Blues[folder]\Aretha Franklin[folder\Aretha Sings the Blues[folder

2. I set "root path" as I:\Lossless

3. Renamed files now at I:\Lossless[folder]\Lossless[NEW folder]\Blues[folder]\Aretha Franklin[folder\Aretha Sings the Blues[folder]

4. I want to batch convert thousands of cds but have them remain in the current four level folder structure -- in other words renamed at the file level but folder location unchanged (and no new folders created).

Am I setting the root path incorrectly?

[TRIMFIRSTFOLDER][origpath][]
Try that.
Or just set your root path to I:.
Either way should work.
