Automatically sort music files into folders by album/artist names

Some audio files from my CD collection don't have any meta data/name or are incomplete. I'd like to use audiofingerprinting to 1) recognise them 2) organise them.

I would like them organised in folders as follows

  • Alphabetically by Artist first initial letter

    • Artist name

      • Album Title
        • track.mp3
        • track.mp3


Can I configure/automate/script audiofingerprinting software to do this?

Which software can do this? e.g. MusicBrainz Picard? (and how) I think WinAmp also does audiofingerprinting, so could this also be configured/automated/scripted?

I just want to be able to point the software, i.e. specify a folder location of the unordered untitled music.

I've used MusicBrainz Picard very successfully for fingerprinting and fixing tags. This quick start guide should get you up and running.

Once you've got your tags sorted, you can move them around easy enough using something like EasyTag

+1 @Colin Pickard. This looks straightforward (hopefully) just drag the unknown files to another place for it to do its recognition. –  therobyouknow Aug 23 '11 at 12:20
Accepted answer. I was hoping to use this tool. –  therobyouknow Aug 23 '11 at 20:30

I'd use musicbrainz for working out what the music is, and do the re-ordering with mp3tag - use 'convert tag to filename" and wildcards to do the naming - something like c:/foo/%artist%/%album% ....
