    Radio DJ's are worthless. They know their job can be done by a dead monkey and are very insecure over this fact. This makes them try and talk more, in hopes of being the next Howard Stern. Really, everyone would be much happier if they just shut up and played the damn music.

    I keep 5000 songs on my system and usualy just keep it on shuffle. If I want to play a specific file, I find it by using a database search.

    I'm in the process of *trying* to sort my 2100 mp3s by album and genre, as well as have a list with all the songs.

    Preliminary tests tonight with my laptop playing mp3s in my car showed me that having a touchscreen display would be veeeeeeeeeeeeery important in a carputer, lol.

    I have about 2500 tracks which I happen to have arranged in album order. However, I have written my player to search the whole hard drive to find every .mp3 track. The TAG data is then read, and a database created, which can be printed out in A5 booklet format.

    To play, you either play a specific album, or artist - taken from the booklet, or (as I usually do) random play. If I like a track, I can play subsequent tracks from the current album/artist/genre/year.

    I don't know if the main question of this tread was ever answered, but the point was that people have their computers turn on and start playing music just like a radio station, and don't particularly "find" a song every time the get in the car. My collection of about 1k songs was thinned to about 5-700 for the car, just because I don't like some music while driving.
