Subject: Re: For a patch, what file name format do you use?

Re: For a patch, what file name format do you use?

From: Brian King <brking_at_charter.net>
Date: Thu, 03 Apr 2003 20:33:38 -0600

The format I use is:

tracknum-title.mp3

04-Romeo_Is_Bleeding.mp3

I use ID3 tags to display all the information on the archos display and
have all the songs organized like:

/Artist/Album/*.mp3

or

/Artist/Album/Disk_2/*.mp3

for multi-disk CDs
