Hi Steve,
Can you copy & paste it into a word program & then print from there?
Not sure if that is what you are after.

There are programs out there which will let you do it, such as Treeprint which was made by PC Magazine (USA).

An option is to go into a Command Prompt (Start Menu-Programs-Accessories-Command Prompt), and use DOS commands to navigate to the correct folder.

For example, if your MP3 folder was in the C:\MP3 folder, then you'd go:
"cd\ " - this would get you back to C:\ from whatever you were in
"cd MP3" - this would get you into the C:\mp3 folder.

Once you're in the correct folder in the command prompt, type:

"tree /f /a > folderlist.txt"

This should create a file in your folder of MP3s called "folderlist.txt", which you can then open in notepad/wordpad/word and print out.

All dos commands listed above have to be used without speechmarks.

Somebody's method works well but if you want a program that will do it for you check out Print Folder (http://no-nonsense-software.com/index.html).

There was also another thread on this topic recently here (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=42519).
