I have about 100gb of music and I have 2- 64gb sdcards. I cant decide between alphabetical order of artist or by genre. Any suggestions?
I prefer browsing specifically by folder structure. Since the amount of genres for the music itself can vary so wildly to be confusing, I simply start created 4 folders that contain specific genres only. Next step up is arranging each album in its own folder, which I leave in alphabetical order. One of my genre folders still ends up too large if I just throw all the albums into it, so I add sub categories to further classify things. Allows for incredibly easy browsing of music.
The album view for me is too big, there's too many albums that aren't categorized properly. And unless I go through to simplify all the genre tags, the genre view is confusing as I don't know what is what. Artist view is also confusing. So a simplified directory structure all the way. :)
