Software to create a list of files in your PC?

I am looking for a software with which I can create a list of the files in a particular folder/subfolder? The list could be a text or excel spreadsheet.

I have a good collection of mp3 songs and want to prepare a list of the songs that I have. For e.g.

Compilation (folder)
Totally Hits (subfolder) - sub fold
Vol I (sub folder)
Song1.mp3
Song2. mp3
Vol II (subfolder)
Song15.mp3
Now ( sub folder)
Vol I (sub folder)
now_vol1_1.mp3
now_vol1_3.mp3

I hope there is a software is available. Apart from listing the song collection it will be of help for listing other files also.

Thanks in advance.

How about just using DOS (or the console) and doing a dir on it?

You can do something like:

G:\MP3>dir /s /b /o:n > mp3list.txt

This will list all files directories, and subdirectories (/s), only give the name (bare... /b), print it in alphabetical order (/o:n) and save the resulting list into mp3list.txt file.

Not nicely formated, but the results will come out like:

G:\MP3\Conan\01 - Anvil Of Crom.mp3
G:\MP3\Conan\02 - Riddle Of Steel _ Riders Of Doom.mp3
G:\MP3\Conan\03 - Gift Of Fury.mp3

Simple and fast.

Well, don't forget, if you just want to list your mp3s, Winamp can do that for you...at the bottom of the playlist, click on the fourth button from the left...choose "Misc," then "Generate HTML playlist."
