If you have more than a few MP3s on your computer, you know what we're talking about. Missing album names. Misspelled titles. Ten different spellings for the same artist. Browsing is not a pretty experience. You need FixTunes. FixTunes will scan your music files and download the correct artist, album, title, track numbers, release year, genre and even album cover art. No hours spent typing or looking up album names, FixTunes will clean up your MP3 files automatically. And it doesn't just work for popular music, either. FixTunes utilizes a database of over 56,000 artists, over 188,000 albums and over 3 million tracks! Everything from pop, rock, classical and obscure jazz. If the song is from a commercially available CD, chances are its in the database. Other programs claim to help you rename files but still make you type in all the information. FixTunes is automatic - no typing!&quot;</em></p><p> <img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2006/FixTunesScreenshot.jpg" alt="" /></p><p>As someone who just spent an entire weekend cleaning up my music collection so it would display properly on the Zune, I can say I really wish I had a piece of software like this. FixTunes looks like a very powerful piece of software that's easy to use. Plus, they have a really cool <a href="http://www.fixtunes.com/albumbrowser.htm" target="_blank">Album Browser</a> that displays all of the albums you have in a certain category as a pile of graphics on your desktop. You can shuffle them around just like it was a pile of CDs. Double-click an album to play it. Sounds like it would be awesome for parties. FixTunes will run you $24.95 and there's a trial available that will allow you to use it for 50 songs. If you download it, let us know what you think.</p>

I wish we had our forum migration finished, because there are some comments about this software over at Digital Media Thoughts that people should read if they're interested in this application:
