Problem renaming

Somehow I messed up and the file names became

Artist-Title-Artist-Title.mp3 The Title and Artist tags still held the correct information.

I erased the song database then from the folder itself renamed the songs to me mp3.mp3 to mp3(401).mp3 so I could rename them again.

At first it looked fine see http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a51/Ma … rename.jpg

Then I Clicked on AutoMove and using the settings shown I hit ok see http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a51/Ma … screen.jpg

Then I click OK to do a rename and the naming of tracks is doubled see http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a51/Ma … roblem.jpg

What am I doing wrong?

Re: Problem renaming

When the Results dialog came up -- did the "Show Filelist" button show the same "doubled" results?  Don't forget about the UNDO button (in Results dialog) if there is a problem...so you don't have to try to manually fix things.

What version are you using?  I just tried "Artist - Title" rename in v0.637 here and it worked OK for me.  Please ZIP and send me your MPEG.MDE file so I can see if somehow your RenameChoices table is corrupted.

Has anybody else seen this problem?

Re: Problem renaming

I just renamed them again to generic names and the Show Filelist shows the same doubled results.

E-mail sent with the zipped file attached

I justed tried to Rename them again with a Slightly Different format. Now it renames it to be This is [Song name] by [Artist].

I can live with that until we figure out why [Artist] - [Title] is a problem

Re: Problem renaming

It looks like you created a custom Artist-Title entry that has the duplicate information.
ID                 RenameTypeText        RenameTypeCode
50                 Artist - Title                $AR - $TI$AR - $TI


Instead of the correct entry higher up in the table.

3                    Artist - Title                $AR - $TI

When you select "Artist - Title" for the rename choice -- you should see the "Artist - Title" entry twice -- the one near the top is correct.  Can you try that and see if that fixes the problem?  Assuming it does -- if you select "Custom" and then the "Edit Custom table" button at the bottom left -- you can delete the incorrect Artist - Title entry.
