    I'm trying to get my entire iTunes library, into normal folders in Windows, does anybody know how to go about doing this?

    Like:

    Music Folder > Artist > Albums > Songs

    You Have To Manually Change The Album And Artists In Itunes.

    I did that, but they're all like this:

    And the song titles are combinations of 4 letters/numbers. They retained their tag info, though.

    Actually, forget what I said before, it's easier than that. Just highlight groups of songs on itunes and drag them directly to the folder of your choice. That copies them over.

    Highlighting groups in itunes is accomplished by highlighting one song then moving your mouse arrow to the end of the list and pressing Shift+right click to highlight the group.

    Oh yeah, to group by artist, just click on "artist" at the top of itunes. Remember to use list form so the highlighting will be easier.

    edit -- preferences -- advanced -- keep itunes library organized
    -- this will make it so itunes keeps your library organized from this point out. any changes you make to your tags, itunes will then make in your folder structure

    file -- library -- organize library -- consolidate files
    -- this will take all files that aren't in the itunes media folder and copies them there. and since you did the first step, they will be organized the way you want them to be

    after this is done, delete the files from the source folder
    -- you don't need them anymore, itunes is now using files in your itunes media folder

    from this point on, add any itunes media into the "automatically add to itunes" folder.
    -- this folder is inside your itunes media folder

    being an apple product, this isn't supposed to be hard.

    you may need to also run file -- library -- organize library -- reorganize files in ...
