mp3 list to text

I need help badly! My husband is a KJ/DJ. I am wanting to make a list of his music to make books.
The songs are on a external hard drive.
I need to know if anyone can tell me a program that will let me copy and paste them from an mp3 file to a text file?

Depends how many you have really....

1\ Make a huge playlist. The open this in Word and edit it. If clever you can use a Macro to edit it to speed things up.

2\ Go into DOS (type cmd at the Run... prompt or in the search box depending on OS) If external drive is G: you need to do: dir g: \S > G:\dir.txt and that will create a text file of all the MP3 files you have in those folders.

Now... the above two items may well not be good enough, so we need to know more about how your actual files are tagged and\or named.

There used to be an "Export to Excel" option available somewhere which would have given you better results. Can't remember where that is - may have been in the Essentials Pack.

Hang on... what, exactly, do you want to produce? A list of tracks on the hard disk or a book of all the lyrics? (I guess KJ is a Karaoke reference?)

mp3tag.de/en has some excellent export functions.
