My iPod uses playlists, albums, genre's and such. No "folders". I guess I could take a folder and make a playlist for that but in short, the answer is on personal computers, files are in folders. On devices such as an iPod there is no exposed file system for the songs we play. Why I have to be very careful is because DISK MODE on an iPod could have the songs in folders but unplayable.

Confused yet?

I wonder if they'll wonder why the iPod doesn't play from there? Or " It's like putting music on an old iPod in disk mode: you can store it there, but you can't play it." (on the iPod.)
