I had some issues with that as well. I'd recommend that you let some
program do the file naming for you. I used a couple including itunes,
and some freeware rippers. mythmusic needs this structure:
I found rippers that called to CDDB are helpful and can sometimes
rename your files for you. if your folder structure is off, it might
suck. best luck I had was using rippers that put the mp3s in that
structure. for one off mp3s, I had to make sure they followed the
structure, even if I did not have the whole album.
I also had good look with a ID3 tag editor for files that would not
name automatically. a google for ID3 editor will turn up a bunch.
last thing I throw out, I just found a CD cover image finder that
works well, I'd recommend trying to find one of those as well.
