    Help me with auto renaming files in Finder
    Hey. I have a lot of .aac music files that are not correctly named. The ID3 tags on the files show the correct name but the actual file name is wrong. Is there any way I can batch process all these files so that the file name changes to the name in the title field in the song's ID3 tag? I hope I make sense here. If not, read the list:

    >Lots of music files with wrong file names
    >But correct names in ID3 tags
    >So, audio file is recognisable in iTunes but not in Finder
    >Need a way to rename these in Finder
    >Too many files so can't do it manually
    >Looking at about 2 gigs


    Help needed. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Could try a program called 'TriTag' . Haven't used it myself yet but spotted it on macupdate a while back and I think that does what you are asking, if my memory serves me correctly.
