    I am trying to sync music to a removable drive. I want the music to be
    placed in a folder called “MY_MUSIC†and not have any subfolders under that
    folder. How can I configure the sync function to do that?

    All I can get it to do now is to put it in a folder called "Music" and it
    has the artist and album folders under that main folder.

    WMP doesn't do that because it doesn't have a great way to manage filename
    collisions in that case.

    I for one would like to see the next version be able to customize where music
    is placed. Some thing as simple as a directory structure based on genre or
    some other user selected field. Or better yet the option to select where
    each SMART playlist syncs to on the player.

    Filename collisions? Why not just a Rename/Overwrite option. However it
    hadles it has to be better than the way it syncs now. I end up with a
    million folders most of which contain only one song. Not easy to find my
