i want to set off on the right foot so im prepared to ditch the system i have so far which, at the minute all my music collection is within 2 folders on my win xp HD 'albums' and 'singles' and being played using winamp
all the albums are mp3 format and are labelled correctly, as are most of the singles.
so my question is what is the best way to get these tracks onto my ipod in an organised and usable way.i am new to itunes so im not sure if i shouldenable itunes to manage all music files by copying to the itunes folder ? should i bypass itunes and cust copy all the files as is onto the ipod ala an external hard disk ?
suggestions much appreciated
