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.
