Set track number from file name in MP3 music management software

I have 278 MP3 files, arranged by the CD they came from. I have 27 folders each named "CD [#]"

How can I use the folder's name as a tag for each of my MP3 files?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Yeah, everything he's asking is doable off the same software. There's just this tiny learning curve, then WHAM, its almost like magic. –  Journeyman Geek Nov 17 '11 at 3:52
oops to slow again. This donateware audio file tag editor with extensive automation capability might do it? forums.mp3tag.de/index.php?showtopic=10501&hl=tag+folder . I would be testing it on a backup set first seeing all the possible things (or bugs) that could happen. –  Psycogeek Nov 17 '11 at 3:54

Mp3tag, it will need a little tweaking but something like c:\pathtofiles\%discnumber%\%dummy% should work in the filenames to tag option would work.

Really its the ONLY tagger you need, once you get a hang of it.
