Capitalize first Letter artist and song in Mediaportal.

Some artist and or songs show up with no first capital letter.
This is because some artist and or songs in the windows XP folders are without capital letters.
I do not want to correct this manually in each folder.
Is there a way to change this so mediaportal always capitalizes first letter of the artist and song?

I looked at this:
Mediaportal Configuration: Music Sort
Is it possible to change anything in Format sentence?

Mabey a tool or program that capitalizes first letters in windows XP folders?

Apoligize for spelling mistakes , this is not my native language

    It won' be possible via Sort functions.

    Have you tried to use a database view instead of the folder based view in MP.
    This requires properly tagged songs.
    With the new tagger mptagthat from hwahrmann there is an excellent tool to complete your tags.
    It is also possible to capialize the tags.

    Even without using a database view mptagthat could help you, if you already have tagged songs.

    1. Capitalize songs
    2. Rename filnames based on tags (tzis means they are capitalized then too
    3. use the organize function of mptagthat in order to create a capitalized folder structure.

    Hope that helps.


    Here is the link to mptagthat:
