    dos mp3 listmakers?

    does anyone know of a list generation program for dos that will search all subdirectories of a given path for mp3s and then add output the list? i am running w95. i want to be able to blindly load music to the system from cd by way of a batch file on a bootable floppy and then run a list generator and have it output (new list plus the old list) to my startup folder. any ideas?

    You can make a batch file. In it, type

    dir *.mp3 /s/b > file.txt

    This should put all the mp3's found into file.txt (the name can be changed such as file.m3u or file.pls).

    However, this will put the filenames with long filenames (more than 8 characters). But if you're using winamp, no problem...

    thanks for the suggestion jesta!

    for anyone that's interested here's what i did to blindly load mp3s to my machine with an ide zip drive or cd drive. it's much easier than hooking up my network cable for just one album!!!

    1. set the boot order to zip (or cd), ide0
    2. made a bootable zip disk
    3. here's the autoexec
    path=a:\;c:\windows;c:\windows\command;c:\mp3
    echo
    xcopy a:\*.mp3 c:\mp3\ /s
    dir c:\mp3\*.mp3 /s/b > c:\windows\startm~1\programs\startup\play.m3u

    4. copy the mp3s to the zip disk on main machine

    5. in about 3 minutes i pop out the zip disk and reboot. the new mp3s are all loaded to the mp3 directory and added to the playlist.
