How to print a list of albums

Post by gymnasium »

new user here. for inventory purposes I would like a list of all the albums I own. Is there a way to create this? I do not want to see individual tracks. Just Artist and album name. Thanks

You can export a file list and then use the corresponding software to print: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/WebHel ... _Lists/5.0

If you want just a list of Albums you'll need to use the corresponding software to manipulate the filelist to get just the Albums.

I have my albums in directories .. one for each album. With this structure I can use Karen's Directory Printer (free) and format as I want. This has worked very well when i have needed a print of albums

Or you can use the command prompt then something like:

cd D:\Music
dir /b /s /a:d > albums.txt


The resulting text file will show the Artists first
  • D:\Music\10cc
    D:\Music\1927
    D:\Music\3 Doors Down
    D:\Music\50 Cent
    D:\Music\78 Saab
    D:\Music\a-ha
    D:\Music\A1
    D:\Music\ABBA
    D:\Music\ABC
    D:\Music\AC-DC
    D:\Music\Ace of Base...
and then artist/albums
  • ...D:\Music\Cheap Trick\In Another World
    D:\Music\Cheap Trick\Sgt. Pepper Live
    D:\Music\Cheap Trick\The Essential Cheap Trick
    D:\Music\Chemical Brothers\Chemical Brothers
    D:\Music\Chicago\O Christmas Three
    D:\Music\Chicago\The Heart of Chicago
    D:\Music\Children Of Bodom\Halo of Blood
    D:\Music\Children Of Bodom\Hexed
    D:\Music\Children Of Bodom\I Worship Chaos...
This is very fast to create the file.

yes it depends on the format of your directories. Mine is simply Artist - Album - Year
