Thanks so much for looking into it and responding so promptly. I downloded the fresh version and I got a slighlt different type of error except this was on line 985.
Here is what it says
Error: The object invoked has disconnected from its clients.
From your previous response, I made a small change I set the variable "prog" to false and ran a simple test it looked perfect.It worked!!!!
So my question is if I set it to false, other than the dispaly bar is there anything else I am going to miss?
I just wanted to confirm with you.
Again thanks for your help.

I just kicked it offf with that change and it is looking good :-) :-)
I am monitoring it in the task bar to see when the process completes.

Yep, turning off the progress bar simply removes a visual aid. The script should still produce a summary of the results so you know when it has finished...

Hi Does your folder script work on mac?
Currently Being ModeratedJun 19, 2013 8:44 AM (in response to jdpnyc)
I'm afraid not. Perhaps when I get the Mac I keep promising myself I can have a go at doing the same thing in AppleScript.

Yes in principle. If your library is in the standard layout of an iTunes folder containing an iTunes Media folder with all the media inside that then you should be able to move it to a shared location/drive and switch the library between Mac and Windows and back again on demand. If not see Make a split library portable. You'll need to turn off the option to Keep the iTunes Media folder organized and place the folder structure you want to import somewhere inside the media folder before you start, otherwise the information will be lost. If you won't need to repeat the process you could then switch back to letting iTunes organize things.

Noticed you have been helping lof of folks. Using your script I uploaded all my folders (almost simlar to what was listed in 1st qn of this thread) to ipod. I have an additional requirement. I want my ipod to skip to next playlist after playing the last song in the current playlist. I did not get +ve response any where. Even if it is not possible using playlist is there any other way I can skip, after playing the last song, to first song of next folder.
Appreciate our help. Hoping for a +ve answer.
(I have sorted my folder based on language and album, I need it to play all songs one after the other, espcially while I am driving, skipping folders after playing it.)

In iTunes it is possible to select a folder and play the contents of all the subfolders & playlists it contains (although depending on how the folder was created you may have trouble establishing the desired order). The same is not true on an iPod, it requires that you drill down to single playlist, and has no options to then play another playlist on completion of the first. I really don't think that what you want is possible, short of constructing a single playlist that has the tracks in the order that you want them.

I downloaded the script and it works jurt fine in the new version of itunes. But I have a question:
How I have my music in a desktop folder is this way,
1. I have a folder with the Artist name-inside that folder is a sub folder with the album name-inside that sub folder are the songs.
2. Same scenario as above but in the sub folder that contains the songs I have many songs (same musician) but it may have different people singing with them. In the subfolder with the songs it doesnt show up that way but when imported to Itunes it breaks it up and creates a new artist listing for each song that has multiple musicians associate with it.
I am just wanting an "Exact" copy of my folders/structure over to Itunes and to keep itunes from recreating it base off of what it thinks the structure should be. Any Ideas?
I do have the "Keep Itunes media... and Copy files to itunes... un-checked.
I greatly appreciate any help.

iTunes doesn't pay attention to the folder structure, it reads the metadata from the tags. If your albums have multiple artists listed in the Artist field then you need to give them a common Album Artist to link them together.
See Grouping tracks into albums for details.
