I know this seems like a stupid question, but it's become a somewhat real problem for me now that my collection has grown to 12gigs.. and it's even worse now that I've just gotten an iPod, mainly because of how the songs are organized on it.
My question is, do you organize your music into its respective albums with a folder of its own, or do you just dump it all into one big music directory? I actually have a third of my music in their own folders in D:\music and two thirds of it scattered as individual tracks or grouped tracks in D:\music itself.
Sometimes I only enjoy one song out of an album of fourteen, so I only keep that one track. But that becomes quite horrible on the iPod, when it organizes its tracks according to album, composer, artist, or just lists all the songs. With alot of spare "scattered" tracks, the "album" folder becomes incredibly large (although a selected "album" might have only one track) and quite a hassle to go through.
It'd be nice to hear how you guys, in particular any of you with iPods, organize your music both on the PC and for transfer into the iPod. Thanks : )
