    I also have an insane amount of music I ripped from my cds and used Itunes to sort them. Beware though if you are using an Ipod with it set to mirror your Itunes Music Folder then in my case on some tracks it created duplicates and on others it lost the files completely though i was able to recover them.... Ohh well just thought I would warn you of my experience

    The original program, cdex, can do this as well. It is quite flexible (as are most open source programs) in this respect. It appears, however, that this feature is either not configured by default or noid somehow changed it.

    Load them all in to a play list then right click on all of the selected files and use the masstagger function. You may have to define how you want them named from the ID3 tags but this works grate.

    If you happen to have php laying around this script should do the trick!

    Just remove .txt off end and edit top of file to reflect your directories

    Have Fun!

    I also use iTunes. I like being able to change the Bit Rate.

    Sorry, from the post I couldn't tell.
    I guess I forgot the wild appeal of the ipod/tunes. Everyone loves it. Never touched them myself. My PPC phone is a fine mp3 player, but what do I know?

    Another vote for iTunes here for the original sort. I went through 90 gigs of MP3s and let iTunes run loose. After about 3 hours, it copied all the MP3s in the proper Artist/Album/Track format. After a few days of running it, I went ahead and deleted my old share.

    Good luck.

    just out of curiosity, what's the filename format?

    Example:
    01-God Ate My HomeWork-CoolAlbum-Pirate_This_Song.mp3

    Tracknumber, Band Name, Album Name, Song Name = format above

    I do not know of any program for windows that could do this.

    What I would do is do a "dir > \music.txt" dump, then process that music.txt file on a machine that has sed to build a batch file that automagically would MD the dirname as taken from regex pattern for album name, followed by a MOVE *album-name*.* album-name\

    You could also turn to VB, or perl, or (gah) C++... ]:>
