Boy, I'd like to be able to do that too...

Just to be clear, you can use any arrangement of subfolders, but the Sansa
automatically organizes its internal menu based on the MP3 tags as you
described.  Therefore, for instance, I had one CD which was a compilation of
various artists.  The Sansa uses the tags so I end up with:

  CD Title/
    Song Title

  Same CD Title/
    Song Title2


Each Artist has one CD within, and each CD has one song within.  Argh.  This
was only a problem with a couple of CD's.  So, yeah, the next time I do this
I'll be fixing tags manually first.
