    I'd like to buy an mp3 player, like one I had years ago (forgot the brand). It had a small screen
    and the mp3 files were arranged in folders, just as on my laptop, and I could choose a given
    folder to be played. That might be all four movements of a concerto in one folder, or the like.

    I looked at some newer ones and it seems that the files are arranged as "songs", in some weird
    order, not in folders.

    So, are there modern mp3 players that arrange the files in folders to be played?

    Many modern media players support using playlists. Would creating playlists and not keeping your audio files in separate sub-folders work for you?

    I have a NAXA $10 on sale player cheap! I got for going to the gym. It supports folders but I would need bifocals to read the screen, I just have all files in the 'root' dir. I replaced one from banging it or sweat or I donno, why I got a cheapie

    We own four mp3 players. IMHO, the very best player made was the SanDisk Clip+ (we have two of those). Someone gave me an Ativa, Office Max/Depot branded player. It doesn't have a micro sd slot like the SanDisk players.
    I put songs in folders so I can play certain tunes.

    Earlier this year i bought a SanDisk Clip Zip just in case one of the older Clip+ players dies.

    You might want to read discussions of mp3 players at the Anything But iPod forum, abi
