IDEA: Filename Randomizer
« on: March 03, 2007, 12:02:06 PM »
The shuffle function of many MP3 players (well, my MP3 player, anyway) is rather crummy, leading me to attempt to shuffle them up a bit manually.  A small app which would reandomize the filenames but not the extensions would be grand.  I'm under a Windows XP platform, should that make a large difference.

You mean an app that would allow you to launch the contents of a directory randomly?

Talking about to randomize it for a portable mp3 player or the one on your xp computer?

The attached utility (no install needed) will rename a selection of files randomly for you. I hope it does what you wanted ;)
