Meticulous Me

Music Note Took out some time out today to rename, re-arrange, categorize and organize my music collection. Now I’m no big-time music enthu and don’t have all varieties of songs; don’t collect English songs (which are the bulk of the lot); don’t have all of the latest stuff that’s available out there but still I do have a good collection of songs – even if I say so myself! They’re mostly Hindi, a few Telugu and a sprinkling of English amongst them. Weighing around at around 6 Gigs, it was quite a bit!

Firstly, I searched Download.com for some nice freeware that would organize those files at a few clicks but could only find some renamers 👿 . Then I remembered reading somewhere about a nifty song-organizer – most probably on one of the many blogs that I saunter about – but a frantic search through my bookmarks and Google Reader feeds could yield nothing 😦 . Then I picked up iTunes and started about doing it the hard way around; ditched it midway; picked up WMP; ditched it too midway; and finally completed it with Real Player 😛 . It had a rather nifty file renamer that automatically renamed the files into the Album – Song Name format and moved them into the Album Name folder – which was exactly what I wanted. So just at over an hour, all the rm and mp3 and midi files were snugly placed under their relevant places and I can now heave a sigh of relief! Now comes the well-nigh-impossible task of smuggling them out and burning’em onto DVD’s :mrgreen:

  5. Doing it thru iTunes was a tad slowwwww!
