    Does anyone out there know if it is possible to get a printout of a folder's contents, ie. if I have a folder that has all of my MP3's in it, can I print it out so I have a list of all my MP3's? Or is there a program that will allow me to do this?

    Just Wondering aloud.........

    I can only do a dir of the drive. Unless I'm missing something, is there a way to do a dir of subfolders?

    For Mp3's, you can make a playlist of all your titles and then print the playlist.

    yes, you can do a dir of any directory...just put yourself in the directory

    like if you start out in C: and you wanna goto windows type

    cd\windows or cd windows

    then you'll be in the windows directory and can do dir from there :)

    Download a great little program called Directory Lister and your problem is solved!
    It can be found at http://freeware.prv.pl

    You could also try a redirect. In a dos window type dir *.mp3 > myfile.txt . That would print the directory listing to a text file. There are many variations of this command such as sorting, show only the names, other attributes, etc.
