MP3 Software Utilities

With this program you can easily scan and fix your mp3 tags, find and remove duplicate mp3 files, rename or delete mp3s (even while the song is playing) and much more!
MP3Utility - This free software developed by Peter F. Smith's helps to identify damaged mp3 files and it's made it possible for me to enjoy my RIO 600 again. Read THIS to see why!
CloneCD - I haven't used this software so I can't speak from personal experience but it's supposed to allow you to copy files from one CD to another and, because the program writes in Raw mode, gives you full control over the output and the ability to create real 1:1 copies of discs. The main feature of the program is that it can copy CDs regardless if they're copyrighted. As long as it's used responsibly,CloneCD is useful for creating back-ups of important discs.
Losoft MP3Info Shell Extension - Freeware that lets you view and edit all relevant information about an MP3 file and its ID3 tag from the files properties dialog in Windows Explorer.
