Creating a list of your mp3s

I use this simple command line prompt to create an ascii tree list of the directory in which I store my music files.

Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt

You’ll then need to navigate to where where your music folder is. This
is old school DOS.

Your command line might read something like this:

C:Documents and SettingsAdministrator>

If your music files are on a separate drive, just type the drive letter
followed by a colon.

C:Documents and SettingsAdministrator>E:

If your music files are in a folder named ‘mp3’, you’ll need to change to that directory by using the CD (change directory) command:

E:>cd mp3

Type the following to print your list:

E:mp3>tree /f /a > mymp3tree.txt

Here is what your ascii list will look like.
