However if you have more than 10 files renaming to 01, 02 etc is better and with 100 or more 001, 002, 003 no parenthesis ()

I want something which if i say i want

My movie S01EXX the xx will be the number

and for images the same with the 001 option i can add the date data myself it it will allow me to say start the rename at 052 or whichever i choose.

I know there are loads of apps which will do this, i want recommendation's, i have google searched it myself and there are numerous ones but few reviews which compare them.

cnets and download.com's reviews are a bit rubbish.

Either open source or retail ;)

If I could remember how to write loops for DOS I could write you a Batch Renaming program.

However I can't remember.

I've written a program that will change the file extension fo a set of files in a folder to another type but thats no good to you.

I personally can't think of how different either of the programs could be. Unless they can perform additional tasks other then renaming files, I would imagine only the interface would be different.

If they are Freeware then I'd recommend you download them all, experiment and draw your own conclusions :)
