    I'm afraid the answer to this may be "no", but does anyone know of a tool out that if you give it the Series name and episode name the tool could go to thetvdb.com and rename your files with correct season and episode numbers?

    Doing so would save me having to rename/manually add over 400 episodes of Doctor Who that are unfortunately stored as follows: Doctor Who\1st Doctor\ 01- An Unearthly Child 1-4.avi
    Doctor Who\1st Doctor\ 01- An Unearthly Child 2-4.avi

    Etc.... :eek:

    My potentially tired hands and wrists thank anyone in advance for any help!

    I'll try both of those, though I already tried Media Renamer and didn't see where that was possible. I couldn't get it with TV Renamer either. I will give the Renamer a try as well.

    Thanks!

    Hey!

    I tried each of these, but unfortunately none of them will work for my Doctor Who collection. The number in the title of each file is for each *story* not each episode, so say The Daleks was Story002 for Doctor Who and it contained 7 episodes. That's part of the fun I'm having...

    I'm still interested in any suggestions even correction to how I've worked the renaming progs.

    Thanks!

    The one I finally came up with that worked for me was Introduction - Bulk Rename Utility Bulk Rename Utility. It is free and allows you to rename multiple files with ease. I now have my entire Doctor Who correctly identified.
