I have around 600 mp3 song files in a folder. All the tracks have a number before their names. I want to remove the track-number from all the files. Ya I know I can rename those files and delete the numbers manually. But by changing all the files one by one will take so much of time. I want to know is there any other method which can remove the track number at a time? For your information I am using Ubuntu 12.04.So kindly help me.
