Hey,

Can anyone tell me why some music filenames have renamed themselves to track numbers? for example..

Filename previously read: Kanye West - Love Lockdown
Filename now reads: 01 Love Lockdown

(may also see attached)

This is the same for nearly half of my music files in my music folder.

Is there a way to get them changed back apart from individually doing it myself?

Thanks

Have finally sussed it out - apparently the Windows Media Player automatically changes the filename when it loads up in its library.

The way round is, whilst in Windows Media Player, select 'Tools' > 'Options' > 'Rip Music' tab > click on file name.

However this will not alter what is has already changed but from now on it will change to how you prefer it. (See attached)
