Hi,

I have this huge mp3 collection which I used to maintain. I organised mp3 s in folders: romantic, pop, italian, rock, classic, spanish, relax and some more. I used to dragg new music to the correct folder and then change the tags, set the names and captions correct, find lyrics, artist, album, with a tool like jriver.
Lately I don t find the time to organize and music piles up on my temp folder.

I m looking for a tool to fully automate this proces so I just have to dragg and drop and the mp3 into the music folder and the rest is done fully automated. Mrogramming or spending days to configure is not an option though.Pls advise.

J.

Hello janhoedt there is just no application that can reflect our hearts like that
What you deem romatic an app may not.
Just a gentle forwarning
The sorting of mp3 from the naming conventions is another sticky most albums are sorted by meta data star ratings names. dates. id tags.
They are programmed to fix and rename find duplicates are you prepared for that?
I wouldnt risk using a tool I might never find my tracks again.
Or they will be moved and resorted.
I just use the  folder option>right click /an expty space and choose sort by  at the bottom is more options and there is a lot of more options you can sort by heaps... windows 7
 then adding the >>group by << once sorted makes it really simple to grab them from the grouped then you drop them neatly into segrated named folders of choice.
I use winamp media player and drag and drop any segment category on to it then make a playlist so instead of adding the files I just use the playlist.
I'd probably stick with what you have been doing.
But not to add too much dread and if your up for it
have a look at these flavours and you'll see what I mean
