Tag info is in the name of the folder, how do I use it?

by Tanyabliss / February 17, 2008 9:49 PM PST

I have hundreds of MP3's that I recorded before I had a computer, just used the audio in on my I-River H140. These files are either full albums, labeled "audio n" or they have been chopped up on MP3 Direct Cut into Track 1, Track 2 etc. Every file is in a folder, correctly labeled with "Artist" - "Album title". Can I use this folder lable to somehow automatically Tag the tracks properly, just with the artist and album title, I realise that these things are beyond the databases.
