Have done a search on the forum and found a thread here but it doesn't quite go as far as I would like.

I use Cdex to rip my music CDs onto my hard drive to play on my computer with WinAmp. Cdex files all the individual CDs into their own folders and each band has its own folder as well. Thus my D: drive consists of one folder containing numerous band folders which contain numerous CD song folders.

What I would like to do is click on the D: drive and request a file and/or printout of all those folders in one go. I don't want to click on each folder and request a printout of each individual folder as there are a lot of them. An HTML or text file would be good.

Does anyone know of a good program that will do this? I have looked at the lists in the link that pvc9 gave in the above link (a lot of which appear to be dead links) but it would be nice if someone could recommend one that they find good.

Thank you. :)

If you can go to DOS prompt, try this.

on C:\> prompt, type the following. I assume your cd drive is D drive and the root contains folders for all the MP3 files.

D:
cd\
dir /s > prn

This will print out the whole list of files onto your printer.

Alternatively you can also use this

C:
dir d: /s > list.txt

This will create a file called list.txt in the root of C drive. You can read that file in notepad, word, etc and print as per your convenience.

Hope I have not misunderstood your problem.

abvavguser: Thanks for that, your method is a nice quick way to get exactly what I want.

I have just found out about a similar method to yours which gives the contents of the directories but not the file sizes and dates that your method provides. In case anyone is interested the procedure is as follows:

At the DOS prompt navigate to the directory/folder that contains your music (or other) files.

To do this my commands are:
D:
cd\ "mp3 music"


then type:

tree /f>>music.txt

What this does is list the "tree" (ie all folders and their contents) then send it to a text file called "music". This file will then be found in my "mp3 music" folder.

It's good to have various alternatives to choose from depending on which result one requires. :)

Glad it helped you. Yes I was aware of this tree command but never used it so far. Will surely try it out. :)
