retrieving files from iPhone

Post by Lyle » Mon Jul 17, 2017 10:24 pm

My laptop was stolen and my MM library along with it.
I'd like to retrieve the mp3 files from my phone, hopefully grouped by the playlist membership they have on the phone.
I don't need to retrieve them into a new library or a MM playlist just now; if I have them in a directory (named for the playlist) on my new laptop, I'll be happy.

When I try to do this from the new installation on my new laptop (Windows 10), they wind up having the right Titles, but the wierd filenames from the iPhone.
I've been selecting all the files in a playlist, then Send To Folder (move or copy).

I read ... le/View/3/ but it didn't sink in.

Thanks for any advice....Lyle

Correct, then run Tools > Auto-Organize Files on those files to rename the Filenames based on the tags.
