    uncheck the box in the itunes prefs that says "keep itunes organised" otherwise it moves tracks around, creates folders and can cause untold issues.

    You could do a search for mp3 files in the itunes folder, then drop all the mp3s in a new folder, this way you don't have to sift through all the folders and manually copy the songs.

    It'll still be a load of work, but it'll spare you a bunch of clicks.

    I hope that helps.

    You can drag the songs from the iTunes window straight to a folder on the computer. So sort by whatever you want in iTunes, drag to new folder for that artist, genre or whatever. When your done with it all you can delete the iTunes library.

    Personally I just use iTunes.
