I hope this is a legitimate question for this mailing list.  Given the
audience, I figured it was worth a shot.

Does anyone know of a software program (preferably free) that will read the
ID3 tags from a Windows folder full of mp3 files and pump them into
something like an SQLite database?  It would be important to also capture
the path to each file file location.

I can do this using popular software like MediaMonkey, since its "Library"
is an SQLite database that contains the ID3 info and path info for each file
selected.  Songbird also creates an SQLite DB.  But these are big programs
containing players and other baggage.  

Is there something out there that will just collect the tag and path info,
and arrange it into a searchable/sortable database?



You could try out my Jaikoz application http://www.jthink.net/jaikoz, its
not free but there is a free trial , just load your songs and select
Advanced/Export.. to export as a csv or .xls file
