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

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.
