An app to convert an MP3 file name to ID3 tag
Pulled an old hard disk from a windows box, and all the file names for my tunes are in order, but these are not the ID3 tags, so as soon as imported into iTunes, its just showing 'Track 1, track 2 etc'
Is there an app i can run these files through, to convert the file name to ID3 tags before importing?

I wrote a tool that does a task very similar to what you are trying to do, except that it pulls the tags from HTML pages. I could repurpose the tool for your needs, if you want.
iMac Intel (Rev H, 27"), 1TB HDD, 16GB RAM, 10.8.4

Did you build a pattern?
Also check you home/Music folder. I think that by default, it moves the modified files there.

ID3 Editor worked like a charm for me on this. I wish they had a few more details in their instructions or YouTube videos on how it all works. Otherwise, great software and works like a charm. If you have any questions their support responds fast.
On little safety tip is that if you have a hyphen in the name then it will consider what's before the hyphen as a the track number and tag the file with whatever you have after the hyphen as the name. To get around this go to Preferences > Advanced > "Use the format below" > Enter: %T and all is good.
When batching click "Set title and track number from file name" at the bottom right of the Standard window.
