The first one could be confusing as soon as you have real directories
on the drive named "Albums" or "Artists" and so on.
But the latter may be a nice thing for these devices not having F2
(Ondio), where it's a pain to go through the menu for a "quick" change
of the "Show Files" option.
A quick change is needed whenever you copied music to your device, but
did not yet update the tag-database.

P.S.: While I'm just thinking about: The Songdb.pl could skip
directory names starting with a dot. I got a huuuge backup-directory
in R:\.backup that is usually hidden and does not contain any mp3 :-)
