I have some mp3 file named "0251.mp3" upto "0475.mp3". I want to change them to "Aflevering 251.mp3" upto "Aflevering 475.mp3". Can anybody help me, I have been trying everything but nothing works

In field 12, i.e. Selections(12), enter *.mp3 to select only mp3 files. Then select files in the range you want to change.

In field 1 RegEx(1) enter

Note above starts with a zero not the letter O

and in Replace field put
Aflevering \1

Note there is a space between Aflevering and the \1

Leave the Include Ext. unchecked

In the samples you supplied this seems to do the trick

Many thanks Jane.

Of course another alternative is to add "Aflevering " as a filename prefix, and choose to get rid of the 12th character.
