Need help copying the file name to both the Artist and Title tags

Post by musicollector »

I am cataloging some foreign music files where I really don't care about the artist name. So, I want to copy the file name to BOTH the artist tag and Title tag. I have named them in the desired form "******.mp3* (not the usual "**** - ****.mp3)].

Eg: The file, dheere re chalo meri.mp3 will have the Artist tag as: dheere re chalo meri as well as the Title tag as dheere re chalo meri.

Anyone know a way I can do this? Thanks.

TIA.

Thank you, Lowlander.

However, I tried, but it has changed only the Artist field, not the Title. Now, this is the current state:

All I want is to pull "Yeh Nayan Dare" from the right-most field, which is the file name, and copy it into the two far left fields.

When I try to do this, this is what it looks like:

What change am I supposed to make? Would really appreciate step-by-step instructions as this is very unintuitive.

Thanks.

Instead of <Artist>-<Title> you need to run it once with just <Artist> and then again with just <Title>.
