I've been trying to run RDImport for the last 4 days
No need to wait 4 days before asking for help :)

This won't work because you haven't specified the option you are trying to
set, so rdimport will look for the group named %t%a%l and won't be able to
rdimport --metadata-pattern='%t_%a_%l' MUSIC
This is more like it as you have now specified the option you are trying to
set with the rdimport --metadata-pattern='%t_%a_%l' but you don't need the

Maybe you have a permission problem on the /home/rd/Desktop/musichold/
directory or the files in that directory. The user you are running
rdimport as (rd) must have permission to access the files. As I think you
created them from the windows computer by dragging and dropping, they
probably don't have the correct permission and unfortunately I am not at a
Centos appliance computer at the moment to check further for you. Try
reading up on linux file permissions.
Try changing to the directory first before running the command as follows:
This command won't work if you haven't got permission to change to the
directory. If it does work enter the command:
rdimport --metadata-pattern=%t_%a_%l MUSIC *.mp3
As I'm new to Linux CentOS as well, I will say the Terminal opens with

Hope this helps - somewhat!
