    Greetings,

    I'm a Droid noob previously trained on a Blackberry Storm.

    While I try to discover why music files and its folder which do not exist still display on the stock music player, I thought to post this question...I'd like to know the right way to do things from those who know, so...

    I have about 10 GB of music files to put on my SD card. I have all the music in folders (like Rock) and sub-folders like Rock/Santana). I have seen posted to "just drop your media onto the SD card" and thought that dropping the 25 or so folders (some which have sub-folders) might help whatever player I use more easily recognize the albums...

    Or, should I just drop the individual songs (maybe 2,900 of them) into a folder called "Music" - or what?

    I'd sure like to know what's the most effective and painless way to do it right and don't mind spending a little extra time now as an investment in future enjoyment and efficiency.

    TIA

    Grab them and drop them on the SD card, all at one time. Unless it's iTunes.
