I'm trying to get a listing of the albums in my iMusic folder. I posted to the gadget Support forum but no one has an idea. ITunes stores the albums in a folder by artist. What I want is a listing of the Artists and the Albums and was wondering if there is a way to do that in Windows? It would be like:

Neil Young
>Harvest Moon
>After the Gold Rush
Warren Zevon
>Ordinary Life
The Who
>Live at Leeds
>Who's Next

....well you get the picture....

Is there a way to printout a folder tree down to a certain level???

I do not know of a free way, although that does not mean that there isn't.

It can be done by creating batch file.

You can also get into the Command Prompt and type
C:\>dir c:\directorypath /b

And all the files under that directory will be displayed.

To save and output it to a text file use this:
dir c:\directorypath /b > titles.txt

If you want to print it straight off you type:
dir c:\directorypath /b > prn

Doing a quick search gives me this link which explains it all more thoroughly: http://www.windowsdevcenter.com/pub/...rectories.html

If the albums are actually all folder names, you could do it from the command line but I would suggest using Karen's Directory Printer.

That one is nice, but I prefer to print a folder tree with Directory Lister Pro which is much more configurable.

There is also the Tree command. It doesn't re-direct well, but you can copy the command prompt screen and paste into a text file:

Of course I know all the answers; I just don't always match the answers to the right questions.

I think you should use a tool to print folder tree, there are several tools are available.
