FileBot 4.1 for Windows
Once mastered, FileBot will rename your media files exactly how you choose.

When it comes to building your digital media collection, naming your files is a crucial part of the process if you want them to be picked up and recognised by your media server. Most media servers come with their own naming guides, which is fine for new titles you add, but a major pain if it means you face the prospect of renaming and organising hundreds of existing files.

What you need is an app that can automate the process for you. Even better if that app can also add extra information like TV episode name, plus embedded metadata and even download artwork. Some tools like Collbee will appeal by making the process as simple as possible, but it’s restrictive and only works in Windows. If you want full control over how your files are named and embedded with additional information including metadata and subtitles, you need FileBot.

FileBot’s versatility lies in the fact you have complete control over the naming process – different media solutions recognise different naming conventions, and FileBot allows you to match up your files to whatever media servers you intend to marry them with.

FileBot works with movies, music and TV shows, and supports fetching metadata and naming information from a wide range of sources, including TheTVDB, TVRage, OpenSubtitles and MusicBrainz. It’ll even download artwork where possible. There’s also integration with uTorrent (Windows), Transmission (Mac) and Deluge (Linux) for working with media downloaded from the internet.

Despite all this power, Filebot employs a relatively straightforward user interface: drag your files in, choose a naming convention, pick your metadata partner, preview the results and then click to rename. It does take a little getting used to, though, making FileBot a better choice for more experienced media users.

Take the time to learn its secrets, however, and you’ll find FileBot is an essential tool in any digital media library toolkit.

Verdict:

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.
