How to read Windows' mp3 artist info in Linux
Hello, I've got a hard drive with a bunch of mp3's on it, in windows 7 most of the files have extra info on them that is shown in windows explorer.
It gives me the artist name, song name etc and I want to tag them all correctly and then order them.
I thought it would be a nice practice task for learning script writing but unfortunately I can't figure out how to read those tags from the files in linux.
I've seen there are commands similar in mp3info and id3ed but It can't locate id3ed and since the files don't have an mp3info tag I guess it's referring to something different to whatever windows is using (which makes sense I guess).
So in summary - How do I use linux to read and change the mp3 ID tags that windows uses.

Hello and welcome!
I use id3v2 for scripting MP3 stuff and it works great. It is in Fedora's default repos, so I just have to do:
yum install id3v2
id3v2 -l song.mp3
id3v1 tag info for /data/mp3/Def Leppard/High n Dry/01 - Let It Go.mp3: Title : Let It Go Artist: Def Leppard Album : High 'n' Dry Year: 1981, Genre: Hard Rock (79) Comment: Track: 1 id3v2 tag info for /data/mp3/Def Leppard/High n Dry/01 - Let It Go.mp3: TIT2 (Title/songname/content description): Let It Go TALB (Album/Movie/Show title): High 'n' Dry TPE1 (Lead performer(s)/Soloist(s)): Def Leppard COMM (Comments): (Comment)[XXX]: TCON (Content type): Hard Rock (79) TYER (Year): 1981 TRCK (Track number/Position in set): 1/10 TSSE (Software/Hardware and settings used for encoding): Audiograbber 1.83.01, External encoder BladeEnc.exe (-320 -quit %s %d)
