However, not all my tags have this track data and I can't be bothered to put it into all my tags.
my guess is someone over at the mp3tag forums would know the formula for calculating total tracks and transforming existing numbered tracks into that, ie 7 becomes 07/13.

the trick is partial albums.

so if u had 3 tracks from a 20 track album, labelled as tracks 4, 9, and 12, you'd want the last highest number to be total tracks, (since the formula can't know its 20)

of course, some autotaggers will do it as ##/## so u could fix a lot of them that way, and mp3tag should be able to do that as well.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing
