Like sometimes it gets really confusing cos I dunno how to label the artists or song's name or album's name.

For example, Girls' Generation and 소녀시대. Sometimes I don't know to edit the artist as 'Girls' Generation' or '소녀시대' or '소녀시대 (Girl's Generation)'. The same goes for songs. Sometimes it's 'Korean words (English words)' other times it's 'English words (Korean words)' then i'm like, how? For albums right, it's like 'Girls' Generation Vol.2 - Genie' or 'Girls' Generation 2nd Mini Album - Genie' or '소녀시대 미니앨범 2집 - 소원을 말해봐' or just 'Genie'. HOW?!

I prefer a standardized way of organizing my songs but I can't really make up my mind how to. How do you organize your songs?

There's no standardized way. Although there are some common approaches we all use.

Example music folder random songs:

<Artist> - <Song Title> <(Additional Info/Remixes)>

Example album folder:

<Album Title>
+------------<Track Number> - <Song Title>

At least you'll have to make sure you have the artist and song information saved into the metatags. Personally I don't like to use Asian characters and english at the same time. Either English or that.

You might want to want use a program that automatically tags your your music collection according to the naming sheme you set.

oh...i understand ur problem, sometimes u encountered artistes names in different forms such as girls' generation, normally i standardized everything in one format (for my case it will be so nyuh shi dae), if the song tracks has korean characters i will try to find any english translated ones to replace, if not i will juz keep it as it is, even if it has both korean and english as titles. as for album title i normally dun indicate whether it's first album or mini-album or singles, juz the title. if u want u can indicate it at the folder name.

it's good that u have the idea of organizing ur files, it will certainly help u...

Haha okay thanks guys seems like iTunes would be better than WMP to edit song tags.

haha some artists have multiple names... like DBSK and SNSD.
in this case, i would label DBSK's korean songs as DBSK and their japanese songs as 東方神起.
and SNSD i would label them as Girls' Generation, but when they're being featured in another song, i would label as... ie. Jessica of SNSD ^_^

for the artist names i look up the official spelling, whether they use roman letters, if they're all caps, lower case, or a mix of the two, or asian characters
if there's more, i just pick my favorite and which one looks more pleasing to me
i only type in the original artist's names when doing this; anybody featured isn't in the artist tag or else i would have like 200 artists XD

for song titles i look up the official tracklist and write it how it is on the actual album tracklisting
(if it says feat. blahblah i leave this out though)
but i sometimes change the titles a little bit for aesthetics

for albums i look up the official album name, leaving out [Artist vol.??] if it's in the title

I was wondering the same thing, I've got a lot of tunes to sort out. All I've been doing is just throw them into a folder but now well it's a real jumbled up mess :P

If it's an artist I have a lot of songs for, I tag it in english (ie, Koda Kumi). If the artist has different names, I tag it based on the name I use most (ie. DBSK).

If it's an artist who I've never heard of and only have about 2 or 3 songs for, I'll use the asian characters.

I rarely tag artists like Koda Kumi feat. blah-blah. I put the feat. artist in the title like:
Koda Kumi ~ Heat feat. Megaryu

Of course, all of this is done when I put songs on my iPod, so no one has to sort through my odd tagging system. XP

I label my songs all the same way.
<Artist> - <Song Title> <(Additional Info/Remixes)>
I never use Asian characters unless I can't find the translation of a title of a song.

I always use the official name of the artist in their original language (이효리, 이승기, etc.), unless the name is in English (Super Junior, Big Bang, etc.)
As for songs, I just put the song title in the original language and leave out any English titles that may be used as well.

I edit my songs by going to where I have them located on my computer, right click and go to the properties.
