How to create a text file listing of all files in a specific folder?

I have a large MP3 files collection that is about 80 GB, approximately 16000 songs. A friend of mine wants a list of my music to start a collection of his own. Bringing them over on an USB drive is not possible as we live in different continents and he has no problem gathering them on his own anyway.

"The JR Directory Printer utility allows you to print a listing of every subdirectory and/or file contained within a directory and/or subdirectory. It supports lowercase/dos style filename, file size in KB/bytes, attributes, custom file length, etc.

The result displayed in NotePad or default text editor as ""dirprint.txt"" file. This file is created in ""JR Directory Printer"" installtion folder, each time you click ""Start"" button.

Options:

Check Recurse Sub-directories option to see a complete list of all subdirectories and all files in all directories.
The Lowercase Filename option will force all file names into lowercase regardless of the actual file name.
DOS style filename option will limit the file name length within 8 chars.
Display Sub-directories will result in a list of all subdirectories contained under the selected directory along with a list of all individual files contained under the root directory. It will not list all subdirectories or individual files contained in the main subdirectories. To see a complete list of all subdirectories and all files in all directories, you would check the Recurse Sub-directories option and click on the Start button. This would rewrite the""dirprint.txt"" file using the new options.
You can limit length file names so that they fits properly in list. By default this value is 35 chars.
You can check/uncheck Display Size, DateTime and Attributes option to list/unlist the file size, modified date/time and file attributes (a - Archives, r - Read Only, s - System, h - Hidden)."
