This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
We could probably answer you better if you tell us what root folders you are including in your library, and you want the resulting library to appear. –  RJFalconer Jan 5 '10 at 11:23

You cannot nest libraries; it doesn't make sense to do so.

Your Music library is an amalgamation of all music on your PC. Or, more generally, a library is 1 or more folders merged together.

So, you could have the contents of;

  • C:\Music\Songs\
  • D:\Downloads\Music\Songs\
  • C:\Users\Wahid\Music\Songs\

...all appear in one folder ("library")

  • Music\

If you want a "Songs" sub folder in the library, you should change the directory structure of the folders in your music library. Ie, instead of the above 3 directories, include:

  • C:\Music\
  • D:\Downloads\Music\
  • C:\Users\Wahid\Music\

Now your Music library has a sub directory "Songs".

  • Music\Songs\

Using links inside a folder might allow something close to the request without file system re-organisation. –  Richard Jan 5 '10 at 11:42
