Duplicate albums on Android - different folder structure from Winamp on PC

Winamp on my Windows PC displays the music the way I want to see it displayed -- by the way I have it organized into folders on my PC hard drive.

However, Winamp on my Android displays things differently.

From what I can tell, the Winamp sync mechanism reads my PC music and creates separate folders on my Android based on ARTIST.

The Android media scanner seems to treat each folder as a separate ALBUM.

Therefore, I end up with duplicate albums on my Android device -- a total mess, and it's not consistent with my PC.

Is there an option to tell the Winamp sync mechanism to simply copy my PC folder structure instead of making up one of its own? The desktop version does it that way -- it doesn't change my folder structure, so why would the Android version do so?

I had the same problems with DoubleTwist. I understand that iSyncr does what I want. But I like Winamp and thought I'd ask in hopes there may be a simple answer and my post may help others with the same issue.

Thank you for a nice product.

The formats used depend on whether you connect wireless or wired (USB). The
format used when wireless connected can not be changed by the user, at this
time. There are options for changing the format when connected thru USB,
depending on device.

There are a number of posts on these features/'bugs' (problems). I suggest you
do a forum search.
