Some people like to be organized. Others don't. If you like to be organized and like to keep files such pictures, videos, and audio/music in folders, an apple (mac) is the computer for you. To wasially organize folders, simply make your folders. Add files, pictures, etc. Then Decide what the folder(s) is going to be. (The Topic. Pictures, Home Videos, Music, Back-ups, etc.) On the desktop, click once. Now at the top left it should say "Finder" next the the apple logo. Click the "Finder" button. Now a drop down menu should appear. In the list of the drop down menu, scroll down till you see "Preferences." Click on the "Preferences" button that s hilighted. Now a box should appear. If not, repeat these steps over again. (It usually shows up the first time.) Now, on the new box, at the top there should be 4 choices. You want the one that says "Labels." Click that. Then you should have different colors, (Red under red oval, Blue under blue oval etc.) Change the Color name to what you want. (Music, Movies etc.) This is great for organizing. no once you are done, go into that folder you created earlier. Hilight that folder once. Right click. under "Labels" select the color you created that goes with that topic. it's that simple!

my ipod won't organize the music, I've tried putting it in different folders. No matter where I put them, they all go to the same file on the ipod which is all music. When I look into the artist, there's nothing. How do I organize the music so I don't have to scroll through to the song I want to hear?


Your MP3 player (which is not an iPod, by the way) probably displays the "tags" in your music files. These are the artist, album and song titles that are embedded in the music files themselves, and not related to the folders in which you store them, or the file names.

You will need to use a music manager to look at these tags, and set them appropriately. Music managers include Windows Media Player, MediaMonkey, Winamp and others.

If you are using a PC to upload files onto your phone, here is the folder structure:

- "DCOM" folder, contains the photos that are taken by the camera of the phone.
- "MSSEMC" folder has a "Media Files" subfolder. You can organize your multimedia files here.
Access:
"audio" folder = Menu > File Manager > Sounds
"image" folder = Menu > File Manager > Pictures
"video" folder = Menu > File Manager > Videos
"theme" folder = Menu > File Manager > Themes
"other" folder = Menu > File Manager > Other
"webpage" folder = Menu > File Manager > Web pages
- Otherwise, if you create any folder in the Root directory of your memory card and put the files in it, the phone should recognise the types of files and you should be able to reach the files from:
Menu > File Manager > "Choose Media Type"

Hope this helps,
