Is there a program I can use to organize my music files?

I want a program that can take all my jumbled together songs and
organize by the ID3 tags. If the program could organize in a
Artist/Album/Song folder hierarchy, that would be great.
When I say organize, I mean having the program physically organize the
programs by folders (folders you would see in Windows Explorer). I
already have my music organized by Artist/Album/Song etc. in Media
Player, but I want them organized like this in the My Music folder.

Welcome to PCWorld Community !
Give this free version of MediMonkey a try or
just go to the site and read about it. You could also
check out their Forum for more information.

I believe that iTunes can go further by doing this to music "added to the library" (i.e. not ripped but just imported in) IF it is set to also "Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library" (you can have iTunes keep you music where it is located on your hard drive OR move it to the default storage location that iTunes uses, which is the iTunes Music folder).
I don't know if this will work for sure or not, but I believe it will. When I get a spare moment I will try it out and see if it does.
If it does work, then Windoze Media Player might have a similar ability as it has a similar storage pattern when ripping songs from CDs.

On your recommendation I decided to give MediaMonkey a try and it's similar to but much better than Windows Media Player. So far, the only significant problem I have with it is that it's a little buggy so it shuts down occasionally, especially with corrupted music files. Thanks for pointing out that program.
Great signature button, by the way.
