    ive got an external HD with lots of music and stuff, and i have em all nicely organized in Winamp library. if i bring my HD to another comp, what's the best way to share the stuff? id like my friend to be able to search through my collection and copy the stuff he wants, and not go thru each folder one by one. what app can search and copy from a collection?

    yo

    you can get a media router at like best buy and u can hook it up with the computer and you can get a small acess point on your friends comp. or you could just get 2 routers and hook up the external hd to one comp and share your files through a wireless network.(the media router lets you use all of the songs through any system in ur house

    yea i can do that, but archiving 12000+ songs takes a while... moreover, after i archive the songs in a library, how do i easily copy the stuff from the external to the internal drive without having to go to each individual folder and copy pasting?

    click and drag the root folder
    or if you have them in the main drive directory hold crtl and click each one then drag

    that would also take a while... i wish winamp or wmp or something has a copy-paste feature... "Copy this song from A to B"
