  • Batch/Script File Needed

    Here is my dilemma. I need some batch program or script to go into the file properties and clear any comments on the file name in the detail field. I have about 80,000 files (music) where some have comments that need to be removed.
    I don't know how to even start this one.

    I can manually open and delete, but there has to be a better way..

    Thanks!

    There's no Windows command that I know of that can edit the tag data for music. So perhaps writing a batch script would be out of the question.

    I usually use MP3Tag to batch edit my own music files (I also have tons of MP3s, some FLAC, and OGGs ripped from my CD collection). That's how I tag them in bulk, remove comments my ripping program might add, update artists information, etc. It's one of my goto tools tagging music files in batches. It supports MP3s, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, and many other music file formats. However, not every format has the same tag fields, just so you are aware (in case you were hoping to add the same details you might have in a MP3 file to a FLAC for example).

    Does that help? Or did you want to do something else?

      All of the files are MP3 (unprotected). I use MediaMonkey for the meta tagging, but there is nothing in the program to "remove a field" in bulk.

      I am about to try the program you mentioned to see if it helps...

      Thanks!

        Ah, MediaMonkey. I use that too, but more for the album art than tagging.

          That recommendation was spot on! It edited 20,000 songs in a couple minutes. I simply highlighted the fields and used the replace <blank> option and bam!!

          That saved me all kinds of time, thank you sooo much!!!!
