Copy ID3 tag info from one field to another, Composer to Comment field

Hi,

I'd like to swap all the info I have stored in the Composer field to the Comment field of the ID3 tags.

Anyone know a program that can do this easily? and what is the function called?


thank you!

Mp3tag can do this. Once you have got the hang of this program it becomes quite easy to use.

To do what you want first highlight all the tracks you want to change.
Now you have to make a new action - Convert Menu, then choose Actions. Click on the New Configuration icon, and give the Configuration a name, click OK.
In the next box (Actions) you need to click New Configuration again, and select Action Type, then Format Value. Click OK.
In the next box choose the Comment field, and in the Format String box write %Composer%. Click OK.
Now make sure the action you just made is checked, click OK, and all your highlighted tracks will have the composer field copied to the comments. You might finally have to blank the composer field by highlighting all the tracks and choosing "blank", then saving.
