    Easytag Noob here :)

    I need help with easytag. I've never even tried to tag music before, didn't even understand it, but I have a folder called "random tunes" and I want Rhythmbox to put the artist name in the "Artist" field because that is what triggers RB to download the cover art from amazon. Right now it lists Title as the name of the "artist-the song" and under the Artist tab it says the name of the folder "Random Tunes"

    How do I get the name of the artist and the title field to switch? Re-tag them? Or is it something I can do in Rhythmbox?


    Thanks alot

    It sounds like Rythmbox is reading from the file name. I assume thse are mp3's. In Rythmbox add your music then in Rythmbox you right click on the file go to properties and change/add the information (artist etc). If you use a program such as easytag you simply add the information artist - title etc. Then Rythmbox should read the tag. You may want to do a little reading just to familiarize yourself with tagging - this will get you started (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tag_editor).

    Enjoy!
