    I m conufsed and would like to get the Dev point of view as how to sort my
    collection.

    currently Each song shows up as a different album in my collection
    the albums are not grouped.

    and except for the ***ratings the rest of tags info probably is not updated
    to the MP3

    so i m either doing rt-click file -> properties ->summary ->fill in
    manually-> apply -> OK. imagine for each file for a 20 gigs collection


    Here are the constraints:
    --------------
    All albums (Movie soundtracks) from India have more than one playback singer
    (read artist, who sings) for a song (most of them being duets, and chorus
    voices)

    we have a Lyricist , who pens the songs wordings
    we have music directors who compose the songs
    we have musicians who ring the different instruments
    We have playback singers who sing the song (typically 1 to 4 per song and
    even 7 per album)

    And since I have to enter manually the info for most part of it as the CDDB
    lookups dont do it for India, albums as yet.

    could you please guide me as how to tag my 20GIGs of collections of a 10yr
    period

    also is the field seperator a ',' or a ";' which is ideal?

    I prefer making it wmp compatible as it wont be a much bigger headache when
    i move to vista later in life.

    I use TagnRename too and would prefer storing the tag info into the MP3 as
    opposed to library , so that i can easily port it.
