How can I stop Windows XP from resorting my music files?

I have all of my music files carefully sorted into folders, but when I connect to the internet, Windows rearranges my files and puts them in different folders. How can I make it NOT do this? It's really annoying because if I have a mix of songs by different artists all in one folder (like the 100 Songs thing someone posted a couple of months ago), when I'm online, Windows moves the songs into different folders sorted by artist and album, so instead of once nice, neat folder with 100 songs, I have 100 seperate folders with subfolders.

What am I doing wrong?

There is an option in Windows Media Player (tools>options>media library) that allows you to turn off the automatic updates of music files. Uncheck that box....maybe it will help. Hope this works...
