    Edit WAV file tags, track #s?

    I've moved all my music to digital format, keeping a copy in lossless WAV as the masters. The problem is that some of the ripping software (I've used several) labeled the WAV files as "01_song_name_etc" putting a track number in the head of the song name, without any separate real track number in the correct field. I can edit the song name easily enough but I can't find any tool anywhere (including WMP) that allows me to enter a TRACK NUMBER for the song, or edit the other main fields for it.

    Surely there's got to be something that can do this, either free or inexpensively? I did see one professional app that says it can do this, but for hundreds of dollars and that's out of my budget.

    I've also tried a hex editor and only mangled the files. From what I can gather there are two standards for embedding this information in WAV files, one at the head the other at the tail, and while anyone can edit the information in an MP3 file, even Windows refuses to edit the information in WAV file fields.

    Anyone?

    I have not tried this with .WAV but one of these have a good chance of doing what you want.
    I do know that with Audacity you can open the wav file then Export it to add that information but I doubt that is what you are looking for.

    I've had really good results with Audio Grabber. I'm not sure it will do what you are looking for (I can't check right now), but it does so much else that it probably will do what you need.

    You'll need to download and install the MP3 module in addition to the program itself.

    Here's a thread in which I tell about my experiences with Audio Grabber. Perhaps it will be helpful.
