Oh man I knew this was going to happen. Complain about iTunes on a mac forum and all of a sudden I'm the bad guy, I'm just not using it right, and iTunes knows best...
Yes iTunes is clunky! There should be a way that I can specify how I like things. That's the biggest reason PC people hate Apple. Apple always thinks they know best and we as the consumers should just accept and embrace that even if it doesn't actually meet our needs. Don't get me wrong, I love Apple products. I have an iphone, an ipad, three ipods, a power book, and an airport. I think mac products are innovative, intuitive, and for the most part worth the higher price tag. But they're also inflexible and pigheaded about a lot of things and it can be infuriating dealing with that, iTunes being a prime example.
As I said I don't want my folders listed as Artist>Album>Song. I prefer to have it the way I stated for the very good reasons that I stated.
Look whatever, I just don't like the way iTunes does it OK? And yes how iTunes manages the folders internally does matter to me. I have over 360 GB of music and I want to put that music on a hard drive that I will connect to my Audi MMI system. There are no iPods that have a 360 GB capacity so this is the only way I can do it, therefore the folder structure matters to me.
And you want to talk about clunky? How about all the doubles I have to deal with in my folder structure AND in iTunes after I let iTunes start "organizing" everything? I can't tell you how many times I decide to listen to one of my favorite albums only to find that it's "one of those" that has every song repeated two or three times. As I said I have A LOT of music. I don't have time to micromanage my collection. That's what software is for.
