Two programs to help fill and export metadata.
MusicBrainz Picard <http://picard.musicbrainz.org> is a cross-platform
(Linux/Mac OS X/Windows) application written in Python and is the
official MusicBrainz <http://musicbrainz.org> tagger.
With *Mp3tag* you can export file and tag information of your audio
collection to files with user-defined file formats. You can either use
one of the predefined export configurations to export file information
to Excel via the CSV export configuration, let Mp3tag create a nicely
looking HTML playlist with one of the html export configurations or you
create an export configuration by yourself where you can freely decided
on the file format and the layout.
An export configuration consists of a unique name, a filename for the
exported file and the definition of the file format. The file format is
defined by you, so it's possible to create, e.g., HTML, XML, CSV, batch
file or LaTeX output.
Mp3tag features a simple template language which can be used to loop
over artists, albums and arbitrary other tag fields. The tag and file
informations are represented by placeholders, which are replaced when
doing the export. You can find an overview of all valid placeholders and
an example at /Configuration, Export/
I have not used Mp3tag, but it should work as claimed.
Picard is excellent, but a bit of patience is greatly rewarded.
Donate if you can.
Hope this helps.

Have you added the metadata from C:\Music\Sinatra\CapitolYears\MyWay

My learned and esteemed listmates,
I wish to print the names of every artist with their respective album
and with each respective song tile (file named as such – e.g. My Way)
that album name (sub-folder).
I’ve saved these files as such:
Artist name (mostly in alphabetical descending order – A – Z) each a
Ex. Frank Sinatra (the folder)
Under that artist’s name (folder) is often (but not always) a sub-folder
with an album name
Ex. The Capitol Years
Under each album (or artist alone if an album had not been created for
that artist) are all the songs.
Ex. My Way
Love and Marriage
New York New York
In many instances there will be no album listed as there may be only one
song under that artist.

Summary: This is how it looks on my hard drive?
…along with other songs (as .mp3 or .wav files) listed in the Folder
(Capitol Years) under the Folder (Sinatra).
I’ve already had one external hard drive die suddenly with music on
want to, at the very least, have a list of all my music on this external
hard drive so when it dies I’ll have all the music list printed.
Is there an *easy* way to do this in Windows 7 (32 bit)?
I downloaded the ptdirprn-setupexe from KAREN’S Directory Printer (

into C:\Download folder on my desktop hard drive.
It’s 1,266 kb but when I tried to open it under my Admin user (it
that for an install) I get the error message - ”Installer integrity

I downloaded that same file three times and each time got the same error
I then downloaded -
only displays some of the artists (less then 1/3) and not alphabetically
and not their albums – just a very haphazard list.
I’d very much appreciate your suggestions about any freeware which could
generate a full music list of artists, albums and song tittles for
