Subject: 1 big directory to smaller ones on JBR FM

1 big directory to smaller ones on JBR FM

Thank you so much for Rockbox. You are making the world a better place!

On my PC I have one directory for all my mp3s. However, on my portable mp3
player (Archos FM Recorder) I would like to have my mp3s organized into
folders (i.e. /Artist/Album). I want to keep my PC single all-mp3 directory
the same
(because if I could have this structure on my archos I would) but I would
like to have Artist/Album directories on the Archos in order to stay under
the 400 files per directory limit as well as make it easy to find the files
on the archos.
 Is there a way or piece of software that will export my one huge directory
of mp3s into smaller folders of artist and album on my Archos player so that
I can deal with them easier on the player. I've heard that the program
Visual MP3 can do this ( with its MP3 search wizard and batch catalog
features), but it keeps crashing on my computer. Are there any other
programs out there that can do this?
    Also, say I do manage to have all my mp3s in one directory on my PC and
get my desired Artist/Album directory structure on the Archos. Is there a
program that will sync my PC mp3s and mp3 playlists with the Archos, given
the Archos' different directory structure?
Thanks so much for your help!
