Printing my fuzes content? or MP 11's content?

[ Edited ]
So far My wife and I  only ripped CD to both our units but would like to print a list of what's in each one.  We use Microsoft Media Player  11 and I see no way to print a list from there..  Just a list of all CD'd would be great to.. I don't want to type a list out by hand then print it.. Is there a good way to accomplish this? Even just a list of what we ripped to the computer would be fine..  At least we would know then .. So far we have keep  our  ripped CD separate from our collection just to make it easier.. We have 700 to 800 CD'd give or take Thanks! George

The simplicity of a saved album list, or songs too, wasn't implemented in Windows Media Player.  Go figure.

 

Something so basic should have been worked into the mix of featires, one would think.

 

I just tried pooking at a µSD card, using Windows Exploder.  I highlighted all albums, hoping to be able to print the collection, but Windows asssumes I would like to move these files somewhere, rather than save a list.

 

I could use [Ctrl][Print Scrn] to save the screen, then paste this from the clipboard to Microsoft Paint for a print...

Bob,

Thanks! I thought it was me..  Thinking there must be something I'm missing.. But I'll save screen then paste in paint like you said.. For now it will have to do.. Maybe others had some creative way.. Thanks for trying to work this out for us and for giving us a work around for now.. My wife and I appreciate it!  George

Media Monkey will create a 'report' of your player's library (Artist, Album, Title, Length, Year, Bitrate, etc.) that can be exported/converted to Excel (.xls format). It's the only reason I keep MM on my computer. Just having albums/music backed-up in not enough. I want a list of what I have on my player. I don't always have entire albums loaded. Sometimes there are a few 'dogs' left out, so having a back-up 'list' is nice.  

 

Media Money was the only program I could find that would create a 'list', so I wouldn't have to go through and manually type one up. It sounds so simple, yet nothing will do it except MM (that I've found).

 Tapeworm,

Thanks!  Is Media Monkey a free program? It sound like it would be useful just to create a list, like you said! I'm going to check it out now and maybe load it in my wife's desktop. It seems crazy not to have a printable list. we may have 250 Cd's ripped now and didn't want to put them back on the shelves until we could do something. Off to

see If i can find MM!!  Thanks again!  I think this will be a very useful topic for most.. George

Yes, there is a Media Monkey version that is free. There's also a paid version with more features. One downside though is that it likes to try and assume control of everything. It wants to be the 'default' media player for ALL formats of everything! So everytime I use it, afterwards I have to go through and manually re-assign Windows Media Player to be my 'default' player.

Assuming you use an Artist\Album style folder structure, here's another option to get a simple list from the command line:

 

dir X:\Music /B /AD /S | sort > AlbumList.txt & start AlbumList.txt

 

Where  X: is the drive letter of your Fuze.  Or you could replace X:\Music with the path to your music library on your computer.

 

This will create a file called AlbumList.txt containing a sorted listing of all the artist and album folders and open it in notepad (or whatever you have associated with .txt files).

 

Obviously not as pretty as a formatted report from MM, but it's a quick way to get a listing.

Great! Thanks!  Space is of utmost concern for me as I'll on a laptop with very limited space *30gb hd*..  How the list looks is not a issue!!  Thanks again! George

Glad to help.  I'm actually one of those weirdos that enjoys the arcane art of command line scripting.  I'm always coming up with little scripts and batch files to do this sort of thing.
