Default Tool to Export WMP Library as .txt File?

Anyone know of any freeware app that will scan my WMP music library and allow me to output a .txt or .doc file of info? Something that is configurable to allow me to select organization by artist/album, etc., would be nice. I've done some searching but haven't come up with anything really useable.

I'd like to be able to create the file and e-mail it to a friend of mine showing him what I have in my library, and he could do the same, etc.

Default Re: Tool to Export WMP Library as .txt File?

For something like this, I use Command.com. I run....

dir /s /b /ad >list.txt

Then again, I have my music collection organized by Artist/Album/##-SongName.wma

That way, it all comes out like that in the text file.

Using the following, you can shape the list more towards your liking...

dir = Lists all files and directories in the directory that you are currently in.

dir /ad = List only the directories in the current directory.

dir /s = Lists the files in the directory that you are in and all sub directories after that directory, if you are at root "C:\>" and type this command this will list to you every file and directory that is on the computer.

dir /p = If the directory has a lot of files and you cannot read all the files you can use this command and it will display all files one page at a time.

dir /w = If you don't need the info on the date / time and other information on the files you can use this command to list just the files and directories going horizontal taking as little as space needed.

dir /s /w /p = This would list all the files and directories in the current directory and the sub directories after that in wide format one page at a time.

DIR \ /S |FIND "i" |MORE = A nice command to list all directories on the hard drive, one screen page at a time, and see the number of files in each directory and the amount of space each occupies, use this command:
DIR > myfile.txt - Takes the output of dir and re-routes it to the file myfile.txt instead of outputting it to the screen.

Did that work out for you? I know I was looking for a tool like that...

You might just be able to make and save a playlist and export it from WMP.

Yep. It actually gave me more than I wanted, so I had to do some editing to get down to just Artist/Album(s). I actually saved it as a .doc file, and did some editing in Word, and it worked just fine.

Thanks again!
