removing metadata

hello all, I have a need to strip the metadata from a very large batch of files. I've looked around and found a few programs that looked good but were unfortunately for windows, and a couple programs for mac that didn't do the trick quite right (little problems).

I want to figure out a way to make an action for this in photoshop: select all, copy, close, new document, paste, save. but I can't find a way to be able to save as something new like a sequence number. so if I ran that on a bunch of photos they would all save as "Untitled-1" replacing each other with every save. I tried to use this type of action along with the "batch" from bridge using the 'save as' with sequence number, but it wouldn't save the new document.

does anybody know of a good way to achieve this? just to simply wipe out all the camera metadata.

thank you very much
