Organising MP3 files for BUG

Hi guys,

I've just bought a Bug DAB radio which also plays MP3 files from an SD card.

I must admit I'm a bit dissapointed with the MP3 firmware. You have to put all the MP3 files in a TRACKS directory on the SD card. All files have to be a maximum of 8 characters long and not include certain charaters.

There seems to be no way of browsing by artist or album name, everything goes in a long list and you scroll up and down the list.

I have bouught a 1 Gig card so have room for about 300 tracks, I normally use itunes to organise my music.

Has anybody got a good way of selecting the mp3 files that I want on the SD card and renaming them easily to the right format?

Thanks in advance....

MoodLogic isn't bad at selecting files, and directly supports SD cards (and Series 2 TiVos). I don't know whether it will handle the 8.3 filename conversion.

If nothing else, you can use XCOPY on the PC to copy files with their long filenames removed ...
xcopy/n <source> <destination>


For gold text on leather in TiVoWeb, try the redbook, bluebook, greenbook and blackbook themes, now updated with button menus
