    I have no idea what happened but now most of my collection of 34,000+ mp3's
    are name wrong and even in wrong file folder. As an example I go into my "The
    Beatles" folder within Win 7 explorer. It has most of my Beatles albums
    (named correctly and most with correct album art) but it will also have Brad
    Paisley album name. When you go into this folder then it shows the Beatles
    song name. And some show Brad Paisley and all the info including album art is
    Brad Paisley but it will be a Beatles song.
    I don't know what happen the only thing I can think of is I bought an Ipod
    Touch and synced it with Itunes. I didn't care for Itunes or the Ipod so
    returned Ipod and uninstalled Itunes. Maybe ITunes messed with my tags?
    But is there any plug ins (or programs) that will automatically correct
    these. I have spent the last 2 weekends trying to manually correct them but
    I'm only on the "B"s so this will take forever.
    Thanks for your help.

    If you got all your mp3s added to media player then goto "tools" menu and
    then click "options" then there will be option for "retrieve information from
    internet" select the option with overwrite all media information. Secondly if
    your Album arts are coming wrong then goto the folder which contains your
    collection and search for "Albumart*.jpg" with including hidden files and
    when search is done delete all the files. Better do the search and delete
    first before changing settings in media player. Hope it saves your time.
    Good Luck!
