if you have autosearch db setting on which i believe is default all u need do is browse the folders inside of virtual dj and they get added to the database.

Thank you, can't find all of my music from Windows media player.. Also, is there a way to integrate the Playlists I have on there?

WMP music may have DRM and won't be playable in VDJ.

You can get a great free tag program for Windows & Mac called MP3Tag

https://www.mp3tag.de/en/

I use this all the time to tag all my music before importing it to VDJ, does the job just fine :)

Simply select a folder of mp3's. When shown in MP3Tag, Click the top one in the list & scroll to the bottom. Hold shift, click last track in the list so all are highlighted.
Then press on the "Filename - Tag" button (yellow arrow to red dot icon button). Job done, all tracks tagged from filename. Nice n quick.

Of course, this works depending on your filename structure. Personally I have all my mp3 file names as:

Artist - Track (mix name).mp3

Of course it has so many more options and features such as Album name, year, blah blah blah, you get the idea.

Hope that helps.

And best of all, it is free and probably one of the best tag editors I have found.
