FiRE 1.0
Easily rename a folder of files in one click

FiRE is the File Renaming Engine, a powerful tool for the batch renaming of files.

Is your music collection a little messy, for instance? Point the program at the folder containing whatever files you'd like to rename, click File > New > Metadata Rule, and begin selecting the tags you'd like to form the name.

Track (the track number), then "Plain text" (a separator) and "Title" (the track title) might work, for instance, though there are plenty of other options ("Album", "Artist", "Comment", "Composer" and more). The main window shows you the effect your changes will have on the file names, and when you're happy, clicking "Apply Changes" will rename the files for you.

This would be useful enough on its own, but it's actually just the start. If you don't want to (or can't) use metadata, then you can add a "match/ replace" rule instead, which can replace one phrase with another, and apply consistent capitalisation. (There's even support for regular expressions if you want to get particularly geeky.)

And the List rule can turn files into a list, adding regular numbers (1,2,3), Roman numerals (i, ii, iii), or letters (a,b,c) to the front of each file name.

If there's a small problem here it's that the Eclipse-based UI means the program is larger than you might expect at more than 20MB (although FiRE is also portable, so there's nothing to install: if you don't like it, delete the download and you're done).

But on balance it's an excellent renaming tool, versatile and packed with essential functionality.

Verdict:

A powerful and very configurable file renaming tool

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
