hello forum,

I'm kindda new to Mac OS X, iTunes, ... all the stuff that spins around Apple.

So here is my issue:
Have the iTunes jukebox, in the preferences I see where the path to it's music storehouse is. Try to copy the music that I have into that folder. The music is already organazed into a folder tree that keeps music arranged as it is supposed to be. Now how I tell iTunes to just add to its database the entire tree withtout to reorganize it at it's will, I mean when I will open the "View/Show Browser" to see the albums grouped exactly as they are stored in folders on the HDD.

QUOTE Thanks

Can't do it. iTunes reads the id3 tags in the mp3/aac's. they don't care what you name folders and how you group them

Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System
