No Idea Where to Start with Renaming

Would anyone mind holding my hand with this? I’ve tried the FAQ and Googling, but I feel like I’m reading Egyptian hieroglyphs. Yeah… I understand that’s a bird, or a snake, or an Ankh, but what does it mean? lol

I would like each album in it’s own folder titled with the Artist Name, followed by the Album Title (seperated by a hyphen), and finally the year in parentheses.

Jay-Z - Reasonable Doubt (1996)

Then I would like each music file to be titled with the Track Number, Artist Name, and a hyphen follwed by the track name with featuring artist/s if applicable.


  1. Jay-Z - Can’t Knock the Hustle feat. Mary J. Blige
  2. Jay-Z - Politics as Usual
  3. Jay-Z - Brooklyn’s Finest feat. The Notorious B.I.G.
  4. Jay-Z - Dead Presidents II
  5. Jay-Z - Feelin’ It feat. Mecca
  6. Jay-Z - D’Evils
  7. Jay-Z - 22 Two’s
  8. Jay-Z - Can I Live
  9. Jay-Z - Ain’t No Nigga feat. Foxy Brown
  10. Jay-Z - Friend or Foe
  11. Jay-Z - Coming of Age feat. Memphis Bleek
  12. Jay-Z - Cashmere Thoughts
  13. Jay-Z - Bring It On feat. Big Jaz & Sauce Money
  14. Jay-Z - Regrets

Finally I would like to have the album cover embedded into each audio file, and a seperate .jpg of the album cover in each folder.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Every time I’ve tried this, it ends up making an even bigger mess of the albums I tried it out on.
