No that’s okay – I could do that, but only if it’s possible to set up Firefly to arrange its folders in the same way iTunes does. If it doesn’t then it’s probably no good. 🙁

Well…Firefly can read an iTunes xml database directly to load his meta-data. So I think letting iTunes arrange the folders and just telling Firefly where they are would work fine.

iTunes aside, what do all you Firefly users use to manage your music libraries?

Being more of a Windoze/Linux person, I run Firefly on an unslung NSLU2 that that has two USB disks attached. Firefly’s primary purpose in my setup is to stream to two Roku SoundBridges that I have in the house. The music library as available as a Samba share to Windows clients. I use several apps for working with my music files….dbPoweramp for ripping and encoding. MP3Tag for tagging, and Winamp for organizing, sometimes playing, and iPod synching. I could do all of this with Winamp, but the other apps are a bit more robust for those tasks.
