Hi everyone,


I had a PC with Windows Vista and made the switch to a Mac last year. When I switched, I put all of my music on an external hard drive (easy for transfer as well as creates a backup) and then put it from the hard drive onto my MacBook. I am just now getting around to organizing my music because it is very unorganized. I came across Unix Executable Files (.ini) and I am not sure exactly what to do. I guess I am not even sure if they are important or not; maybe I should just delete them and be done with it.

If anyone has any advice I would greatly appreciate it. I tried doing the terminal trick that I've read about on various forums: type file and drag n drop. I didn't conclude anything from that. I can tell you what it said if it helps decipher the problem.


For example, in a folder there will be an .mp3 file of the song, a .jpg or two of album art and the .ini. Let me know if further explanation is needed and if you have an answer for me that would be great.


Thank you



MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
