You make a text file and then you write the names of the select mp3's in it. After that you go and press print.(Sry that's the only way i know.)

unfortunately, I don't think you can. You'd have to create the list
manually and then print it.

Call me crazy, but i imagine if you open the folder they are in, and click on views on the bar above and change it to lists, then hit the print screen on your keyboard and paste it into paint i imagine you'd get a full list, printable too :roll:

yep there is a great way to do it and very easy (you can also use it on all kinds of files) I am just about to hunt around for a copy of it on this computer for you. will get back to you soon.

It will put them into a text file for you, its not a program just a script you run from inside the file.

Well its Monday and here I am at work :wink:
Sooo here is how to do it for those who don't know :D

copy this into a notepad document:
Code: [ Select ]
echo off
cls
dir \\two\music\*.mp3 /d /b /s >\\two\music\mp3list.txt
  1. echo off
  2. cls
  3. dir \\two\music\*.mp3 /d /b /s >\\two\music\mp3list.txt


where you see \\two\music\
put the path your music folder (change in both sections - in the second leave the filename mp3list.txt)

Then save the file into your music directory as a .bat file (so it will be called mp3list.bat)

Save

Double click on the file and it will generate a .txt file of all the .mp3's in that directory you specified.

It also works with other file types (just change the extension in the first section)


Hope that helps,
Rose :D

DOS is a beautiful thing! *lol

I suppose logic would dictate that if you added that .bat file to run in the autoexec.bat it should theoretically update the text file on every boot. If it changes frequently, that might be a useful option.

It's very simple and easy. Here's how.

1. Open Word Pad

2. Open and use Power Desk to list all your file names.

3. Highlight the entire list.

4. Select the " copy as text" option.

5. Paste the list into Word Pad.

6. Select the edit/replace option on Word Pad.

7. Put ".mp3" in the first window. Leave the second window blank.

8. Click on "replace all."

9. You're done. You can now save and/or print the list.
