    This works for both Mac and Windows computers.

    1. Connect your PSP to your computer.
    2. Open X:/PSP/MUSIC or X:/MUSIC. (X: being your PSP)
    3. Create a folder for each artist.
    *If more than one album by an artist is being used,create a separate
    folder for each album. (I usually go by release date)
    Ex. "Nelly - 2000 Country Grammar"
    Ex. "Nelly - 2002 Nellyville"
    Now folders are arranged not only by artist but by release date not
    name.
    4. In each folder drag/copy all the tracks you'd like. Make sure the
    folder and tracks match!!! Watch your available memory.
    5. Open VLC (I recommend).
    6. Starting from the first folder (alphabetically), select all
    of the tracks and drag to VLC's playlist. Directly below each
    set, place the next one.
    7. When finished, save the playlist as 'Music.m3u' or 'PSP Music.m3u'
    or similar.
    8. Create one new folder in MUSIC, titled exactly as the playlist.
    Place the playlist and all of the tracks from each folder in this
    folder. DELETE the other empty folders.
    9. Disconnect your PSP (this may be lengthy.) Open 'Music' and
    the folder containing of all of your tracks. An 'm3u' symbol
    should appear.
    10. Now your tracks are ordered by artist and then by album, and then
    year. You can now shuffle through ALL of the tracks, and they
    are ordered. I myself currently have 508 tracks on my 2GB MS.

    Sorry for the fuzziness, only have a cameraphone with me.

    You're welcome. It was a trial-and-error for me, but I finally got it working. Got tired of unorganized tracks and 'group mode'. Better than iPod if you ask me!
