I have a load of mpg files that I want to rename to avi. Instead of doing them all one by one is there an easy shortcut or prog that will rename the extensions with much less trouble? I am running Win98se. Thank you.

No, these are actually divx compressed mpeg-4 avi's, currently named mpg but i need them all named as avi's to join them together with my joining program.

Open a DOS window
Then CD to the folder that these files are in

IE: CD\"my documents"\"my flicks"

(use quotes if the folders are longer than 8 or contain spaces)

Then enter

REN *.mpg *.avi

exit the window
