OK...so I have like 10000 songs in my digital music collection, right? Problem is is that not all the similar artists names match so my MP3 is all unorganized.

To properly explain to you what I mean Ill use an example.

OK...say I download all the Jay-Z albums...sure its all Jay-Z's music, but in my music player (currently using J. River Media Center) I see all these Jay-Z albums and instead of all the music being under "Jay-Z" there will be a lot of songs that are something like "Jay-Z ft. P.Diddy" or whatever...so in my music player and MP3 player (Zune) Ill have like 20 "Jay-Z ft. W/E" instead of it all just being organized under "Jay-Z"...make sense? Also some names don't match...like Ill have a "Limp Bizkit" a "limp bizkit" a "Limp B.", etc...

So basically what I need to do is to be able to rename all the artists in all my music so it will be nice and clean on my Zune.

I spent hours renaming all the artists using J. River...and it seemed to work...at least, I can delete all the music from my collection and re-add it and it all remains named correctly...but the Zune software still sees all the music as "Artist featuring whoever" and messed up names...and even if I clear it all within the Zune software itself it STILL copies it to my Zune with the incorrect data.

OK...to sum it up...I basically need a program that will allow me to edit the artist information for multiple albums while actually CHANGING the actual info of the song instead of the information changing just for a certain program.

If anyone knows what Im talking about and can help...please do so...

Found it! MP3Tag is what I found and it is doing EXACTLY what I needed it to do!

Typed all that OP for nothing...

This is why I use foobar. The tag mess is much, much worse if you have classical music.
