file properties editor

i have to edit many music files, changing different album names and artists (over a hundred).
is there an explorer that pops up as another window. the regular windows editer, can be time consuming, right click etc...
what i am looking for is an editor that opens as another side window, what i mean is a window split into two, left side the files, right side properties etc..

thanks in advanced.

You need to google for an editor that works with one or more of the following: iPropertyStorage, ExtendedProperty, MetaData, File summary tab, etc.

What is the exact file type (mp3?) and the exact columns in the metadata you want changed?

mostly mp3, i have albums - names etc.. in different languages, and would like to change them to english names. or vice versa.
fill in missing properties, more specific track numbers.

thanks for your time

just finished testing some, the mp3tag one, is exactly what i was looking for.
all you have to do is put all the folders into one big folder, it brings up all the files in the folders, including sub folders, and to the left one can edit, even complete albums at a time.
i tested it on about 10000 song files, and worked perfect.
your the greatest (today)
thank you very much for your help.

have a good weekend
