I have just seriously increased my collection of MP3s (approx. 100,000). What suggestions do you all have for me to get the fullest enjoyment (i.e software). I currently use iTunes and hate it as I find it difficult at time to search for music in my collection.

What say you?

After I get done loading all this music it will be a pain to sort out all the duplicates as well, so if anyone has some suggestions on that let me know.

Have a look at this, it works really well with large libraries. I have been using it for about 6 years.

Since I would only use it for MP3s, could I get by with the Media Jukebox since it is free?

Could you imagine this conversation in 1990? I have 100,000 MP3 files but I need something better than Itunes to sort and delete duplicates, so can I get away with syncing my Ipod with Winamp?

I don't see why not, I have always used it as a media center. But the jukebox should be more than enough for what you would need. I moved to linux so I stopped using it less than a year ago, but it's the only thing I miss from my windows days.

I have 95GB of MP3's and that is 14,000 songs.

And there is no way in hell I even come close to listening to most of that. WTF does somebody do with 100K songs? First of all, if the MP3's are of any quality, that's gonna take up like 2 500GB hard drives.

But hey, I guess the dude likes to collect songs.

What say you?
100,000? Wow.

At 3 minutes a song - average pop/rock tune - that is 2 years straight of music.

Honestly I don't even listen to music all that much, but storage is cheap so if I come across some music I will add it to the library. It just has gotten big enough that iTunes (which I only because I have an ipod) just isn't cutting it.

Some of you act like I'm collecting wives.

THey are jealous. One can never have too much music.

I have a ton of CD's and actually listen to them. I do go through them and pull the bad ones. Have been checking stuff out at the library 1st lately.

Enjoy.

Kleptomania is the condition of not being able to resist the urge to collect or hoard things.



Just kidding SureShot... Here are some links from Lifehacker that might help...

Organize your music collection with aTunes

I just bought a 120gig Zune from CC, $180.00.

Everyone has an ipod and I just wanted to be different.

Plus it links with XBox360 pretty nicely.

i am the exact same way. i get music i heard and thought was decent, put it on the ipod and never listen to it again, while only really listening to about 100 of the around 5000 i have on the ipod.
