Looking for a way / util to do this....

I've been looking all over for a nice little util, or a method of doing this.

For instance, let's say you have about a whole LIST of MP3's that you want to print out. Each mp3 is sorted by artist. In my case I have about 300 artists, and about 5 songs per each... roughly.

I want to have a nice printout of the directory, so that I know exactly what I have.

Don't really need it in any other format, but if the util will do that.. then dandy.

I've looked at things like SVG FolderPrinter Plus, and so forth.

Help!

Oh... having it print in columns will save on the trees, and ink. =>

Does this allow you to print out the Dirs as well?

Some of the naming conventions are really screwed up, and I don't want to go thru 1000 MP3s and edit them one by one. =>

I'd rather just print them out, under their dirs.... I've at least got those named correctly.

Load all your songs into Winamp and from the playlist hit Ctrl Alt G. That will open your playlist up in IE. Then just print it :D

There are utils that will probably do it better, but: (I'll assume you are familiar with the command prompt)

D:\Music>dir /b /s /on *.mp3 > "%homedrive%%homepath%\desktop\music.txt"

That will make a list of all mp3's under D:\music as music.txt on your desktop.

You can always edit it further with something like UltraEdit if you need to.

It's a little more complicated if you have some silly filenames and want to do it from the ID3 tag.

Just found one called Karen's Directory Printer... close to what I'm looking for, but unfortunately it does not print in columns....

but pretty close.

:) or you can use >> to append to the file.

You could then always open the .txt file in word and format it with colums.

I think I might have found a better way. the TREE command is BACK!!! it was in dos then gone from 95/98, but it is in XP (and probably other versions of NT)

D:\Music>tree /a /f > "%homedrive%%homepath%\desktop\music.txt"


easier to read albums that way. :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
