Windows Media Player Library?

Is there any way to have windows Media Player organize the songs as it imports them?

I have a bunch of MP3s in Shared Documents from another computer. When I drag them into Media Player, it adds the songs to the list, but what I would also like it to do is add the songs to the My Music folder and organize them by artist/album.

I don't see anywhere in the settings to do this. Can media player do this, or is there another program that will do it? (I tried iTunes with the same results.)

Go to Tools->Options...->Player tab. Check "Add music files to library when played", and "Include network folders".

Or you can just copy all the files to My Music and under the Options->Library tab check "Rename rip music files using rip music settings" and "Rearrange music in rip music folder, using rip music settings"

If the music is already tagged it will sort them automatically. You can import tag info in the library by highlighting all the tracks from an album, right clicking and selecting "Find Album Info".

iTunes can do it. "Have iTunes Organize you music" and "Copy music into iTunes folder" both should be checked under preferences
