    Is there a way to program some kind of macro or use automator to rename music files (MP3) so that everything follows the format "(Song Name) - (Artist Name).mp3"?

    I did this, and it worked well for me. I'll post it here if you really want it, but the one I made is a VERY quick and dirty script, so I'd warn you against using it unless you're willing to act very cautiously when using it, otherwise it could cause very bad results. Plus, I'm sure there are better ones out there already anyway.

    Look around at this site and I'm sure you'll find a great solution.
