Thread: How do I convert FLAC to MP3 WITH Id3 tags?

  1. #1

    Unhappy How do I convert FLAC to MP3 WITH Id3 tags?

    I have a HUGE music collection that keeps growing. FLAC files take up WAY too much storage space for my limited budget, so I keep MP3s. Sometimes I can only find what I want in FLAC, and convert to MP3, but then I have no tags. Adding them all by hand takes up WAY more time than I have free, and sometimes I can't find a source for the info anyway. I was told that FLAC files contain the information, and even DLed a program that said it could extract it, but couldn't figure out how to do it. Can anyone help me with this?

    dBpoweramp will convert FLAC to mp3 and copy the tags across.

    Flac files only contain tags, if the tags have been added to the file. It is possible to have a flac with no tags.

    Converting a flac with no tags to an mp3 with dBpoweramp, will give you an mp3 with no tags.

    If your flac files are organised in structured manner, dBpoweramp does have a tool that creates ID tags from filename and folder names.
