    While I throughly love Tag & Rename...it's a bit of a headache when you have over 55,000 files...

    55,000! thats a whole bunch of music... how much space does that take up, my modest collection of about 7,000 with the majority in mp3 form at avg bitrate of 256kbps i'm nearing 53gb. Assuming your collection is similar to mine bitrate wise i'd guess about 420gb! wow!

    I'm at around 40,000, and I know what you mean. I try to tag my music as I acquire it so I'm not having to retag tens of thousands of files at once.

    The way I organize my music, it's not too bad, really. I store my music in subdirectories of Artist\Album. I can select a single artist, tag all the albums by that artist, and then move on to the next artist. It makes it easier to tag everything in small chunks.

    Since when do you dis T&R? You're the one who recommended it to me!
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    heh - I know I know...

    as for the size, it's about 120 gigs right now.

    Unfortuantely, a lost of my music is ony at 128. It's from over 6 years ago when I started collecting. I've gradually been recollecting at higher bit rates. I'm also trying to find the time to rip all of my current collection of CDs in lossless format...but I'm not sure when that will happen...lol

    I would recommend Tag&Rename also. The ability to grab all the album info from amazon UK/US/DE is a massive boon. (Especially when you'v ripped 20+ CDs and not set up EAC to output the correct tags ).
    I also just use it in an artist/album directory structure and find it never has a problem with re-tagging lots of albums at once.

    just make sure you reedit the tags if youve used the amazon lookup, as it adds text into the extra info in the mp3 tag, which means youll get square blocks in your playlists in front of the album / track name.

    other than that, its worked mircales on my music collection...

    PS: Does anyone know a work around to get the music to play in winamp in the track order? only solutiion ive read is renaming the files in numerical order in front of the file name...

    Think one way to get round that is to create a mini playlist for each album in the correct order and just play that.

    I'm sure someone will come along with the correct answer though
    Project install no where near started!
