Hello everybody. I was thinking about getting an iPod for a while, but as I researched about the subject something really freaked me out. The thing is: I mantain my MP3 collection under a highly customized folder organization. Something like this: mp3s/Blur/albums/(1991) Leisure/... mp3s/Blur/albums/(1993) Modern Life Is Rubbish/... mp3s/Blur/b-sides/... mp3s/Blur/live/released/(1995) Live At Budokan/... mp3s/Blur/live/released/(1999) Bustin' + Dronin'/... mp3s/Blur/live/bootlegs/(1999.03.15) Hippodrome, London, England/... mp3s/Cake/albums/(1998) Prolonging The Magic/... Then I figured that all iPod uses to catalogue the songs is the ID3 information from the songs' tags. My tags are properly filled, but I chose to put there the original information about the song, like, if there is an MP3 of a song that is part of a bootleg (a live version of a studio song), I put in the ID3 tag the information from what album the song originally is. So, if I would like to listen to a specific bootleg I will have no option: all songs from the same album would be under the same "folder" inside iPod, no matter what folder it originally was in my computer. I searched a lot of information about this issue and someone said that I could compensate the lack of folder categorization with playlists. I could create a playlist for the desired bootleg and then all the songs would be logically united in that piece of information. Is this right? I'm sorry if it seems that I'm beating around the bush here, but it seems that very few people are such a nomenclature-freak like I am. If this is right, is there a program that automatically reads folders and create playlists? Thank you very much.
