Hallo, (a Mac Book User here) I want a simple thing from my music player and but none of the the current software does this anymore: I have a folder on my C: drive called "Music" (yes, that simple). And my music is organized there perfectly (for me, that is). Now I only need to find a player that would allow me to drag this folder structure + music files onto my ipod(+ipad) and play it from there. 10 years ago I had a cheap USB-type Sony music player that could do exactly this. No frills, no cool functions, just a simple copy and paste and I was done and happy with it. I am looking for the same for my ipad and ipod. After several hours of looking on the web and trying stuff out, I still don't see any alternative. Is there really no software that would enable me to do such as simple thing? Much obliged for your help, Kristina PS. If you want a more detailed explanation: Itunes forces me to import my music and have it organized by artist, album, date added etc. (you know the drill). The outcome is a horrible mess and I need to spend hours to re-lable and re-organize the imports. This is party because plenty of my music is not the typical stuff you get from the web. There's a lot of foreign music, music you can't get in the stores or get info for on the web and about 10% of my music is private production that not yet been published. Furthemore, for my own purposes I sometimes need to organize my music accroding to the people I received it from (hence a folder with the name: music from Peter etc.). Last but not least hundreds of songs after import appear in Itunes only as "audiotrack+number". I understand the advantages of organizing music in Itunes but I DO NOT WANT TO DO THAT as I already have a structure that works for me (sorry, need to repeat this). Ideally I'd use Itunes only for managing my apps + podcasts. For music, I want a different software. My ipad + ipod differ significantly in the content of what apps I have on them + their storage size. Hence I can't use auto-sync either. I have tried, amongst others, the following: loola songbird Free TransPod MediaMonkey (the only one which does allow you to organize your music according to location on your hard-drive, but the interface is horribly clunky...can't really use it for my purposes). + a few others I don't recall their names. None of these would do the trick for me. Is there really no solution for such a simple demand?
