Default help neded in tagging

i was searching for some tags using tagscanner software,and i did something foolish and the title of each of my songs in my library have changed to artist-album-songname format(it was artist-songname before)So when i play through my cellphone i cants see the song name coz the artist name album names are longer[hope youve understood what i said] ,its very frustrating.Ive tried everything and still im trying for over a week with no success.Is there any way that i can batch rename all my songs in the "Artist-Song" name format from "artist-album name-song name" format.Thanks for your help.

It can be done with MP3Tag.

Assuming that your mp3 tags are correct...
  1. load your songs into MP3Tag (or do them a batch at a time)
  2. highlight the ones that need fixing
  3. click on Convert at the top
  4. Tag - Filename
  5. play with the format string until how you want it, try %artist% - %title%
  6. click Preview if you wish
  7. click OK

If the tags are correct (and that is a HUGE IF), then line 5 should not write an album name.
