    I am coming from a custom Ipod Classic, I have a huge library of music and now that my new phone (HTC 10) accepts big micro sd cards and 256gb cards are starting to come out I am looking to transition over to my phone as my main MP3 player.

    I am looking for something that will let me easily mange my large library, I would like to be able to only view specific directories that I choose so other audio files that are on my phone that aren't part of my library aren't lumped into my collection.

    Also while I have you, on my PC I use Itunes to play my music locally and obviously this is how I put songs on my Ipod, is there an alternative program I can use instead of Itunes now on a Windows PC to play my music and maybe even manage the music on my phone?

    There are many, from the stock player to the things like Google Play, but from what you are describing (I have a huge library, too) what makes sense is a properly designed program with a way better interface and more options. That answer is: PowerAmp. Among other things, it lets you choose what folders will be scanned. Its interface puts Google Play to shame.

    As for transfer, plug the device into your computer with a USB cord and you can simply copy with a File Explorer manually. I buy a lot of music on Amazon for instance. The downloader to your computer makes it easy to find the files on the computer. Plug in your device, attached to a USB port. Just copy the files manually. (COPY--that means you retain backups on your hard drive.) I'm sure there are programs that automate stuff like this, but I haven't paid much attention as this is really easy.
