    I have a collection of about 7000 MP3s. (mostly legit actually)
    Only about half of them have ID3 tags.
    Under a folder called d:MP3s I have folders arranged like so...
    _Aphex Twin
    ____1992 Analogue Bubblebath
    ____1999 Windowlicker
    _Beatles
    ____1966 Revolver
    ____1967 Sgt. Pepper
    etc etc etc...
    Given that I don't have ID3 tags on all these tracks, is it going to be hell to organize my music with the Audiotron?
    Or can it simply browse the folders similar to how Windows Explorer would?
    Dying to know! Thanks!

    The Audiotron sorts and catalogs based on ID3 tags only. If you've got a standard naming convention you can use software to tag the files based on the filename, otherwise you'll have to clean things up manually.

    As a Linux user, I'm not too familiar with the Windows tools out there for ID3 tagging. Tag seems to be a popular choice on the Audiotron mailing list.
    For other alternatives you might want to search the archives at: http://maillist.voyetra.com/audiotron.html
    Whatever you use though you need to tag your tracks to make them useful.

    Well, I downloaded MP3IR, and I'm sorting through my collection with it. Works good and is pretty easy to do.
    Thanks!
