    "Did the trick!"

    December 29, 2014  |   By WhomIMayBe

    Version: TagScanner 5.1.657


    Allows me to adjust the tags for first song on an album then copy just the common tags to the remainder of the songs. Genius!
    Allows tags to be extracted from the file names. The tags don't have to be separated by any particular character, it seems to be able to figure it out just telling it what tags are embedded and what order they appear.
    Easy to rename files using Album-song or any combo of tags. renamed all of mine so they are all consistently named.
    If stuck, you can search for missing tags from external databases. It takes a few minutes and I don't always agree with the genre so I try not to do this more than necessary. In one case the artist and album name were missing but the songs were all there. It managed to find the missing info by matching the song titles... smart!


    Its not very intuitive. Unless you are accustom to working with databases or still remember some of the command formats in DOS you may have to glance over the instructions (available on TagScanners web site).


    I FOUND NO TRACE OF UNWANTED PROGRAMS OR CHROME APPS. Perhaps the download has been fixed.
    There is a newer version on tagscanners web site. Not sure why Cnet doesn't automatically download this more recent version. It will suggest installing the newer version the first time you run the program.
