    LMP dumps all my songs into one directory despite the fact that I create folders with different names. How can I create a library that separates songs by artists, albums, etc?

    To my knowledge, LMP-ng does not support browsing by artist, album, etc. All it has is the "gigantic list of all songs on your card" mode. Useful when you want to shuffle all songs on your card, but not so useful otherwise.

    I don't know how advanced Moonshell has gotten in terms of browsing through music files, but I'd take a look at that.

    Yes as DanTheManMS says, while LMP-ng can't support playlists, Moonshell2 can support M3U and WPL files.

    Cool, thanks for the fast reply. That's too bad it doesn't support playlists as I enjoy using it more for music than Moonshell2.

    Well hang on there, I'm fairly certain that LMP-ng does support playlists in .m3u format. It's just that it would take forever to make a playlist for every artist/album/whatever you wanted, unless there's some tool out there that does it for you.

    Ooops, sorry. I meant, 's too bad it doesn't support libraries.
