Smoke Posted January 21, 2007 Report Share Posted January 21, 2007 What I don't like about it it the fact that when I installed it, it then proceeded to move all my files around, placed them in different directories, and move any files that for some reason didn't meet its restrictions into another folder. It wasn't like it was all done under another folder. No, it sent these folders all over the hard drive. I was digging them out of the Windows directory, game directories, system folders, everywhere. It went completely fucking nuts.I spent two days manually reorganizing every file back to its proper folder and sub-folder. Tens of thousands of songs, haphazardly thrown around because the program didn't like the way the ID3 tags were done. Basically, I had the worst experience with iTunes. And combined with the massive problems the iPod had, and the complete and total failure that was Apple customer support... I will never buy an iPod ever again. I don't care if they hand out free blowjobs for a year with one. It won't change my mind. That's a setting in iTunes itself that does this, and it's supposed to organize your files based on their tags(Artist, album) in the folder you set as your music directory for iTunes(Which is also where the downloaded tracks are stored, and defaults to My Documents\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Music. The only way that you would encounter your issue would be if you changed that folder to your C drive, and turned on the automatic organization stuff(Copy files to iTunes Music Folder, a setting on the same section that holds the folder location settings), combined with some pretty bad tagging. I disabled this option the moment I started iTunes for the first time, added the tracks I wanted and fixed tags where needed(Fairly rare cases), then used it. All my tracks stay in their original folder. The only flaw in iTunes I found was that it doesn't like files being moved to different folders, and won't help much when trying to find the track again.
