Default Looking For Programs

I am looking for 2 programs. Any recommendations?

1 - something I can create a basic database in. I want to catalogue all my CDs and DVDs so I want to create one database for each. I just want something simple so I can make fields like Artist, Album, Year, WAV, MP3, etc.

2 - something I can use to search and rename files. This could be 2 separate programs or one combined it doesn't matter. But I need to be able to search for certain things in the name/content of a file (like a certain word in a .txt/.log file or in its name), search different file types, etc.
