Default Playlist creation using subfolders?

I was wondering if anyone has had success with organizing their songs by genre in seperate subfolders inside the music or microsd folders?

The thought of trying to select a substantial list of songs, has kept me from trying to even use the rockbox for playlist creation....but if I can group by genre in subfolders, could I not then drop the whole folder into a playlist through the rockbox controls????

With the O.F. I had three playlists that I'd like to recreate....I generally left it playing all files, but at times I wanted all 'hard' music with rock/metal or 'light' with country/easy listening...and one set of motivational songs for the gym.

I finally got my 8gb microSDHC card for my 260, and put my old 2gb card in my 280...so I had enough room to move all of my current files to one drive making the playlist operation a little easier.

Any helpful tips about rockbox playlisting would be appreciated....even if they don't relate to my topic starting question....Thanks!

Well I got around to trying this out on my own and am pleased to report it works.

I simply pre-selected my music and organized them into folders for metal, country, pop, oldies etc and copied those folders into the root and microSD folders.

Now if I want to avoid say metal, I can select one of the other folders from the "files" menu and it will load that playlist. Then through the database, I can select artists-ALL and play from all the folders.
