Is there a tool for OS X that can find ID3 information for MP3 files based on... I don't know... some kind of file fingerprint? MD5, etc? Have a ton of MP3s that I don't want to go through manually. Thanks!

A server on our home network has over 100GB of mp3s in various states of disrepair. How can we organize them, get rid of duplicates, losslessly normalize volume, name and tag them, and prepare them for streaming? [more inside]

Say I wanted to fill the genre tags of my whole mp3 library automatically.
Say I trusted the last.fm
community enough to use the three most used tags for a certain song/album listed there (for example: New Order's Ceremony
would get "80s" "new wave" and "post-punk").
Say I wanted to do this automatically.
Say I had a Mac.
How would I go about this? [more inside]

Can anyone share recommendations for software or "least-effort-techniques" for adding ID3 tags and album art to large sets of unsorted, untagged MP3s? [more inside]

Does anyone know of a (preferably free) program that will let me copy an ID3 tag from one MP3 file to another. [more inside]

Concerning a large batch of mp3s and their id3 tags: I have about 5 GB of music that I downloaded from Emusic about a year ago. Due to an exceedingly stupid maneuver on my part, I accidentally stripped all the id3 tags from the files, which ended up physically renamed to something like "Untitled Album - Untitled Track 1," etc. -- so I now have about 500 songs like this.
They're organized in folders by artist and album name, so that much information I have -- I'm now in search of a utility that will allow me to get the appropriate information from CDDB or something, and then batch rename the files so I don't have to manually, and painstakingly, do so 500 times. I have both Windows and OS X, so platform's not much of an issue. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Is there a tiny (and free) Windows program I can put in my "Open With" menu for mp3s that will simply rename the file to [Artist] - [Title] based on the file's ID3 tags?

I have a few Gb of mp3 which I want to sort into folders by artist (they are currently all lumped together in one single folder). My ID3 tags are in order. Is there any software that will allow me to do this in XP?
