    Unhappy How do I Sync all my mp3s?

    Ok my question is not directly for a computer in a car but I do think it could relate and be of use to some members. What I want is to sync my home and office PCs (could be home and car). I need to do this over a flash disk, 512mb, no internet. My problem is that my mp3 directories home and work are over 10 gigs in size with many different songs. Now I don't mind making several trips, and I will have to as anyone can see. But are there any programs out there that can do this? Can I sync these 2 large directories without having to manually find every song? Is there any software that will automatically pick some of the files I need today and then some other files the next day until it's all synced? Please help.

    Let me get this straight:

    This is scaled down... but basically...

    You have files A,B,C, and D on computer 1
    You have files C,D,E, and F on computer 2.

    You want files A,B,C,D,E and F on computer 1 and computer 2.

    Right? (basiclaly you have some files that are ONLY one computer 1, some files that are ONLY on compupter 2, and maybe some files that are on Both... but you want ALL of the files on BOTh computers? That's what Sync means to me...)

    You could probably write some good old fassion MS-DOS batch files to automate stuff like that...Or maybe someone else has a better idea. I don't know of any software at the moment that will do that for you.

    NitroNic that's exactly what I'm looking for. And thats what I thought too, gonna have to write my own program. Maybe I should start learning how to do that.

    How are your MP3s arranged? Are they all in one big directory, or are they in several subdirs?

    My mp3s are mostly arranged in subdirectories. Example C:\*\*\Musik\artist\album\*.mp3 But all the subdirs are in one directory. That is C:\*\*\Musik

    I would try what neon_eddy suggested, that SyncToy program. It's basically meant to sync two different locations (folders, directories, etc....) and it works pretty good. You can set it up to sync in several different kind of "modes", where it just keeps both sides synced, or just does a one-way sync, etc....

    Now, to get music onto the flash card I've actually been using the Sync function built into Windows Media Player 10. I've got a 1gig flash card for my pocket pc that I use for mp3's and all I do is add the songs I want into a special "Sync" playlist in Media Player and when I plug my flash card into a reader it will automatically add the songs I want and erase those I took off. I know it's still microsoft but it does everything I need with a ~20 gig song database.
