iPod – Setting up music in folders

I have found the best way to do this is to open iTunes, Music, Songs, sort by Date Added (you may need to add this column), File, Add Folder to Library, let them import and highlight the newly added songs (use the shift key), right-click, Get Info, tick Album and enter a name.

Afterwards, you can also right-click, New Playlist from Selection to turn that album into a playlist. Now click iPhone, Sync and you should find all your songs by folder in either playlists or album names.

Unbeleivably, I cannot find an easier way of achieving a folder by folder method of importing mp3 files as I, like you, have gone from an simple mp3 player to the nightmare that is iTunes.
