    Hi All,

    Tried to find a relevant thread to post this at end of or perhaps that answers this and hopefully whoever knows where it is will just link to it and not be too unkind about my inability to find it.

    I've never used any media player software to sort or tag my music ever. I have something like 10Gigs of fairly well encoded stuff and the collection grows over time, this time last year there was probably 8Gigs in the pile.

    All my music is sorted by folders and in those folders they are usually named by track number, ie:

    01. Astonomy Domine - Umma Gumma - Pink Floyd.
    etc. etc.

    I can't seem to find the way to get this 'music' app in android to sort by folder first and the multitude of '01. next song, next album' in a row in my music list is starting to really get me down.

    I don't want any nonsense to get album art for me or even to try to figure out what album this is (byte allowance on plans in AU sucks pretty hard, OK?) or what order these songs should be in.

    Simple form of question: What is the name of an app that doesn't try to be clever about your music collection, just sorts and plays it by "(1) FileFolder->(2) FileName"?

    Advanced form of question (I think): Is this possible with this app that comes with Android and calls itself 'music' in the list?

    Thanks in advance, I'll be subscribed to this thread till I post that I am not...

    Try Mortplayer, there is also a widget (separate download).

    Thanks. Do you know if it play everything on the SD card or can you specify the folder (IE: Music)?

    Just FYI, if you ever feel like tagging your stuff, you can probably use mp3tag to fill in the info based on the folder structure you've set up, just to make it easy.

    Hey, thanks Lars1 and thevoiceless - I actually popped in to append my post that it's not very friendly around here because I didn't get a notification email that someone replied and found your replies!!!

    I suppose my next question should be "how do you really subscribe to your own darn thread!?" because I have 'instant email notification' chosen below!!

    Oh well, shortly I will checkout Lars1's recommended player and post back if it is not brilliantly what I want.

    Thanks guys.

    If you go to your user control panel (top left of the page, under where it lists the forum and subforums) and go to "edit options" you can change your subscription settings. I think when you post a thread you're automatically subscribed, so I'm not sure why you didn't get an email.
