    Hi all
    Can anyone please help I am new to Automator and wondered if anyone out there has designed a workflow that would allow me to rename the files in a folder to be the given same name as the holding folder.
    eg: 2files to be renamed inside my karaoke title folder .......

    my karaoke title/ 12323.mp3 12323.cdg
    after being renamed would become
    my karaoke title/ my karaoke title.mp3 my karaoke title.cdg

    Is this at all possible? I have looked at automator but do not think it has the capabilities to do this. Please prove me worng or is there a workaround?
    I do not understand applescripts or how to make them but would love to learn. any help would be much appreciated.

    many many Thanks

    Yes, AppleScript will do this.

    There are great scripts online, search AppleScript Rename Files
