    How to change illegal Windows characters to underscores

    When I was booting into Ubuntu for my everyday computing, I assumed I would never switch back to Windows, and I thought it was great that I could name music with characters that would be illegal in Windows.

    Now I'm back on Windows (for AutoCAD) and I need to change all the illegal characters to underscores. Does anyone know how to do this from a terminal? My music is well organized. 98% of it follows the structure ~/My Music/Artist/Album/track songtitle.mp3
