Mp3 to DVD Question

by Syrinx77 / September 9, 2008 10:06 PM PDT

What I'm trying to do is not only put a TON of mp3s onto a dvd-r (the easy part), but I also wanna rename ALL the songs. That is, I wanna remove the song titles & make them all "anonymous" so the listener can't read who they're listening to.

There a fast way to do that or would I have to change each of them ONE at a time? Thx

Damn. Shoulda guessed it would be easy.

I'm doing this w/ an out-dated Sonic program that came w/ the laptop. (Sonic DigitalMedia LE v7) & I was initially gonna try renaming them from the project screen. According to Sonic customer service- no can do.

Guess I'll leave it unless someone knows of a cool work-around?

this solution:

"select all the mp3 files and right click, go to properties, then summary change the artist / album / title fields to blank.....
Now, to actually rename the File Renamer basic.
On the left side, browse to the folder that holds your mp3 files. Select all, then go under File Name properties at the bottom. click on Custom Filename and then hit preview. If you like what you see, hit apply. For me, this turned evrything into filename-0001.mp3, filename-0002.mp3, and so on."

...Which was fine. I downloaded File Renamer basic, but was stuck at the step when I was supposed to "right click, go to properties, then summary change the artist / album / title fields to blank".

Whenever I right-clicked, it would undo the highlight on my selections. & if I *did* see Summary, it was only for a single song & it was grayed out & I was unable to click on anything.

What next?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
