    OK, so i've searched the forums... here goes....

    I'm going to set up a distributed audio system, and am some way on with sorting out the hardware. X-boxes figure large as the players via a home network.

    The question is, for ease of indexing the tracks, what is the best format to log the data? I'm about to emabark on ripping 400+ audio CD's, and whilst I have found data for the best quality to use, no-one has suggestedd the best format for the file naming conventions to ease indexing....

    should it be directory based - artist/album/track.mp3?
    should it be literal my music/artist-album-track.mp3

    or what?

    Someone MUST have done this before!!

    Hi Howard0000,

    Yes, i posted in three forums. Thats because there didn't seem a logical place to post my query, and, having looked through the users in each, they seem to be very varied. You happen to brows the groups I chose to ask for help.

    If you can tell me which is the most appropriate forum for distributed audio questions, that'd be useful. If you could help answer the question, then that too would be good.

    Apologies,

    Pat
