Can there be /music subdirectories? or how to keep MP3 organized
I would like to keep the contents of my MUSIC directory organized, e.g. create MUSIC/artist1/album1, MUSIC/artist1/album2, etc. subdirectories. Yet it seems all MP3s need to be put in the "root", and the player relies on ID3 tags to keep things organized.
If that's the case, what suggestions do others have for naming files and thus facilitate tasks such as erasing all MP3 from a given artist? (This itself sounds like a painful proposition.)
Re: can there be /music subdirectories? or how to keep...
Well you certainly used a lot of big words there, and I am no expert, but I highly recommend using Windows Media Player to do all your sorting...It's a huge help. There you can change the tags, artists, albums, etc to fit your liking and it will show up just as you type it.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

-- Connect the iPod with your PC. Close iTunes if it opens up automatically after connecting iPod.
-- Go to Control Panel-> portable Media Devices/devices and printers-> Double click on your iPod or right click and select "Browse Files" option.
-- Navigate to the iPod_control folder/Music Folder.
-- Select all the folders over there and copy all the folders and paste it on your hard drive or directly into iTunes. If nothing is visible then go to Control Panel -> folder options -> View Tab-> Show hidden file/folder/drives.
-- The iPod music folder structure is very strange, however if you copy the folder content into iTunes you can arrange/organize the music files by selecting "Keep iTunes Music Folder organized". You can do this by in iTunes Edit menu-> Preferences -> Advanced tab-> check Keep iTunes Music Folder organized.
Copying Music using Software--
There are some software's that are available that can be used to copy the selective items from your iPod. There are a few softwares that can be used to do this, they are-
I set up flashmp3player at home on a Linux server and it played music fine when I loaded it through flashmp3player.html like you said. At home I'm able to access the mp3/ subdirectory but on your site I cannot:
I suspect your web host may be prohibiting access to files and/or directories with 'mp3' in the name. Try copying an mp3 to your web root directory and then downloading it - if access is denied then my theory is correct.
You can put music on it by doing the following (assuming vista/XP environment):
Connect it to your PC using the provided USB cable. Open windows explorer and navigate to your Sansa Clip. Click through "sansa clip", "internal memory" to the "music" directory. Drag and drop MP3/wav files to this directory. Feel free to create subdirectories. Your music will be accessible after doing this. Be aware that the clip ignores your directories. It will look for artist, album, and title tags to categorize your tracks. You may have to look for your tracks in the "unknown" album directory when playing if your tracks don't have these (ID3?) tags.
Convert you *.cda CD files into MP3 extension files, then put them into as many subdirectories as there are disks to avoid overriding the number of cuts on a disk (typically no higher than 25), then put them in directories marked 1 thru whatever number of disks there are, drag and drop the respective converted mp3s to the directory that corresponds to the CD disk. Then drag and drop the whole works to your playlist directory in your e260, and presto you've got the whole thing. The E260's included software will not do this, but there should be some freeware around that will do it. Perhaps evern media player will do it. I don't know. I'm wary of any MS programs. They're monsters. The who drag and drop procedure is done in Windows Explorer, the file manager of XP and, I think, vista too.
Plug it into usb, copy subdirectories under root. Note... There is a limit on the number of individual files that can be in each subdirectory. Neighbor and I bought one and he ran into the limit (I forgot the number) while I used several subfolders and filled the full 1 gb.
ok the easier way of doing it is to go tomy computer and look for drive G WHEN YOU HAVE CONECTED YOUR MP3 TO MACHINE RIGHT CLICK ONIT EXSPLOER AND LOOK FOR MUSIC FILE AND GRAG ALL OF THE MUSIC YOU HAVE INTO THIS FILE
