    hi all.... i have nearly 5000 AAC (m4a) files in one single folder. all of them have artist and title tags and also all filenames are in "artist - title.m4a" format (no exceptions).. i am looking for a software or even a batch file or any script which will read the artist name (from filename or tag), create a new folder with that name and then move all files by that artist into the created folder.
    Any suggestions??

    PS i thought of creating a program in C (using TC) for doing this... but some of the filenames are really long... will a program made in C (which is DOS based) be able to handle them??

    thanx all

    You can use iTunes to do that.It organizes the audio files automatically by artist names.

    i had tried using iTunes... but theres a problem with that.. coz that renames the files from "artist - title" to just "title" and places it under a folder "unknown album" (coz i dont use album tag) under "artist" folder!!!
    i dont want anything to do with albums... and the program shouldnt rename my files as they are named perfectly... (even the damned letter cases!! !!)

    ^bump^




    PROBLEM SOLVED.... i couldnt find any software which suited my needs so i brushed up my java and wrote a program!

    and IT WORKED !!!
