A suggestion along the same lines.  If you include a /b on the "dir" 
command line, you can get a much more streamlined list of files with no 
date or size information.  The /b is for "bare format" and is very 
convenient for creating file lists in a directory.

Hi Debra,
  One way to get a list of the file names is to dropt to a msdos prompt:
go to the start menu
all programs
command prompt will be in the list of accesories
once you get to the command prompt
cd to the directory / folder that contains your  music files.
once there type in this command:
dir >filelist.txt
once you have done that type in this command:
Now navagate back to your folder containing the music files
and open the file that you created in the above step named filelist.txt
depending on how your system is configured, the file might not display the 
file extension, so the file name might just be: filelist
Once the file is opened it will have a list of all the file names ( along 
with the file size file time and file date)
just cut and paste the file names from that file.
