    Hey everyone..

    I have about 60 gigs of music, and have always had it organized (broadly) by genre in separate folders.
    They are:
    Rock
    Indie
    Spanish
    Bossa Nova
    Classical
    Hip Hop
    Older (classic rock, etc.)
    Electronic
    Jazz and Blues
    and Pop

    I recently had the new 80 gig ipod crap out and am thinking about redoing it all, because everytime I add new music now it is a pain in the ass finding the album cover through media monkey, adding it to the genre folder, searching for it again, then adding it to itunes.

    I was considering letting Itunes do the automatic organization and sync thing. Is it worth it? I want to occasionally update the lyrics to songs I listen to a lot, and the current way isn't the easiest. I had the ipod not set to auto-sync, but to manual.

    Thanks!

    I Have 15GB of music, and let iTunes do it all...

    I enjoy it very much... but then again, I am a Mac fan.

    I keep all my music in a folder with the artist/band name. Inside it's divided up in to albums. I then keep them in folders the size of a DVD for backing up.

    I just let Window Media scan all the music and put it in its library. I can search by keywords, artists, albums, genre, etc.

    Of course I heard the newest WMP sucks.

    :ugh: i think itunes sucks at organizing music...

    why not just organize it on your own and separate it out by artist and album? it'll take a while but it's much better in my opinion

    all of mine is done alphebetically.

    folders #-Z > band > album > songs

    it makes it easy to find stuff. i've got 352 gigs done that way and have no problem finding stuff.

    i also use the media library in winamp sometimes if i want to find a specific album to listen to.

    I don't bother sorting it by genre, that's for fags.
    I sort it all by band, and then by album within the band folders.
