Hi!

I've searched on Google but it seams that is no standard about this.
Any ideias?

A) About the CD number
1) codec \ Artist \ Album (CD 1)\ track - title
2) codec \ Artist \ Album (CD1)\ track - title
3) codec \ Artist \ Album (Disc 1)\ track - title
4) codec \ Artist \ Album\ CD1 \ track - title

B) About the year:
1) codec \ Artist \ Year - Album\ track - title
2) codec \ Artist \ Album (Year)\ track - title

C) About the title:
1) codec \ Artist \ Year - Album\ track - title
2) codec \ Artist \ Year - Album\ track - album - artist - title

D) About the folder structure:
1) codec \ Artist \ Year - Album\ track - title
2) Artist - Album - track - title.codec
3) Artist Album \ track - title

E) About the track number:
1) 1, 2, 3, 4..
2) 1.1, 1.2, .... 2.1, 2.1... (multiple CDs)
3) 01, 02, 03, 04

F) About the cover file:
1) folder.jpg
2) artwork \ xxx
3) cover.jpg

What are the best options? I see a lot of combinations arround the web and I don't know what is the best one.

I've been doing:

A1, B1, C1, D1, E1, F1

Well.. after some tests I an now doing like this:

codec \ Artist \ year - Album \ discnumber.tracknumber - title

And for ID3tags:

- No CD number on Album field
- CD number on discnumber field
- "VA" (Various Artists) on "Album Artist" instead of "Artist" field (works well on Windows media player but not in foobar)
- Discnumber id3tag works well on foobar but not in WMP (lol)
