PROS: A simple yet effective interface. Seemingly frequent updates to an already good program. Free. Finds music tags very quickly from several sources. Light on resources. Small download. Installer and portable version available. Built in music player. Multilanguage interface. Support for embedded lyrics and cover art.

CONS: Untested on 64-bit. Pulling tags from servers returns errors (infrequent). If you are you are working in the 5th column of the page and drag-select, it snaps back to 1st column (very annoying). Dragging a music folder into TagScanner sometimes returns errors, opening within TagScanner or restarting is the only workaround. Frequent recoverable hangs. No help documentation.

VERDICT: This program will become an invaluable tool to anyone who has an unorganised music collection and wants to whip it into shape. It will take a little while to get used to the interface but once you’re au fait with it you’ll love it. It’s completely free but unfortunately comes with no help documentation. Working with large music folders (i found 10GB +) and trying to edit all of the tags at once frequently hangs (“not responding”) TagScanner, nearly all of which it recovers from and resumes. I recommend working with folders under 10GB at any one time. All in all, a decent program for your music tagging needs.

PRICE: Free.

VERSION REVIEWED: 5.1.555

    Just to confirm, TagScanner works beautifully on my 64-bit Windows 7. TagScanner is, in my opinion, one of the best free tag editors out there. However, I would b e thrilled if it could handle a larger music collection, but I guess that would be far too much data…
