In case anyone wants to know more about this, I have found that Windows Explorer is a very clunky method with which to review your music files. I have been able to use mp3 tag to organize albums, get album artwork, etc. I have found it to be a great help.
Now I am in the process of "whittling down" all my music files. I have been a victim of downloading entire albums which bloat my collection. In all reality, there are usually only 3-5 songs per album that I want to keep. That is where the star rating comes in.
It would be nice to right click on a song, play- windows media player pops up- and if the song is a "keeper", then I can simply rate it using the rating column, if I can ever figure out how to get it to work!!
