    change file extensions (XP SP2)

    How does one change extensions on a number of files all at the sametime? I have 40 or so files with an extension of .mod that needs changed to .mpg Takes a long time to do it one at a time.

    Re: change file extensions (XP SP2)

    Good old DOS to the rescue!

    Open a command prompt window (Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | Command Prompt).
    Switch to the drive where the files are, if they are not on the default drive (usually C<img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>.
    For example, if the files are on the E: drive, type <code>E:</code> and press Enter.
    Make the folder containing the files the current folder, using the CD command.
    For example, if the files are in the DocumentsVideo folder, type <code>cd DocumentsVideo</code> and press Enter.
    Type <code>rename *.mod *.mpg</code> and press Enter.
