    Hi All,

    Ok, this is driving me insane.
    I have tons of music on my computer each seperated into folders.

    Is there a way i can drag a folder into iTunes, and it will automatically create the playlist based on the folder name?

    I dont want to manually create a playlist, then copy the music, as there are quite a few folders.

    Even advise on other non-iTunes apps appreciated.
    I used to use Winamp+ml_ipod in the past which will allow to do this, but they dont currently support iPod Touch FW 4.0.

    Any help please?

    Thanks

    /wolf

    What about the "Add folder to library" command in iTunes? I do not use it, so maybe I am totally wrong about this.

    add them all to itunes, go to recently added and select them all with the command and add to playlist.

    @SlovakApple - that will just add all the music, not create playlist.

    @Biker - same goes. I need different playlists created for each folder with music inside.

    I understood what you meant. But I think there is no single command/function that would do that - add the folder and create a playlist. I can imagine the way proposed by Biker is the best.

    Perhaps move beyond the 1990s music organization would help.

    Once you have music in iTunes making playlists is very easy.
