Need to Organize my Music !!

So what's the best software which would actually help me organise my music and sort my collection in a neat manner??

Its over 20 GB now and in a big messss !! I use winamp which does not solve the purpose !!

Any Suggestions ??

Suspect this'll end up in the computer forum, but the key is proper tagging of your files.

Once tagged, a mainstream app like iTunes or Windows Media Player (and presumably WinAmp, although I've not used it for ages) has no trouble organising your collection by such information [genre, artist, year, etc.] rather than physical location, and you can run searches and filters to produce playlists to your heart's content (i.e. "give me all the hard rock from my teenage years")

I use Abander Tag Control* for the tagging process, as I prefer it's level of functionality and control over the native tag editing offered in programs like iTunes.

Cheers, Polikarpov

*note this is not a media player, it's just for tag editing - you then import the edited tracks into your media player of choice

Try iTunes. You can import all your music to that and then tag it as Polikarpov has said. This is how I've organised all my music and I wouldn't change it. Everything has its place, album, artist, genre etc. All I have to do now is get it all rated and load in album art to those that don't have it. Gonna take a little bit of time with 7228 tracks!

Download iTunes from HERE

Have fun.

You don't need this digital mullarky, ditch your computer, get yourself a decent phono-gram and get yerself some vinyl- it looks, smells and sounds fantastic.
