InCMusic Tool by InvScribe
The InCMusic Tool by InvScribe is a fabulous new way to add music to games that support a "Custom Music" or "Custom Soundtrack" folder (future versions will add support for games that do not have a custom music folder). It is designed to allow game players to easily add their own music to such games with minimum hassle. In InCMusic Tool's primary mode (called Zero Byte File Mode), InCMusic Tool will create files in the custom music folder that take up no hard drive space. Even better, it does this VERY quickly! InCMusic Tool has many features, including other modes: Copy and Shortcut.
Please be sure to use the latest version.

I originally made this for The Sims 3 and then tested it with other games. Presets include The Sims 2 and several other titles.
InCMusic Tool 1.1 is Free
I thought about this long and hard. I decided to release it as free software for everyone to enjoy. There are no ads, nag screens, or anything like that. I only ask that it is not distributed outside of the channels that I have personally distributed it on (aside from sharing it with friends).
InCMusic Tool is compatible with all patch versions and all expansions. It is not a mod, hack, or object, and it is compatible with all known mods, et cetera. InCMusic Tool does not modify your game files. It simply creates the files you have asked it to generate.
Zero Byte Files
These special files take up no space. Zero bytes. Nothing. They are completely safe, and fully supported by your Operating System and File System. They do have minor special requirements, as follows:
Beta testers have been thrilled with how easy it is to use InCMusic Tool. In short, the instructions are: Create a playlist in your favorite media player, then Save / Export it as an m3u file. Load it in InCMusic Tool, select your preset and mode, and click Go.
When InCMusic Tool is done, you can close it. Your game is now ready. In The Sims 3, you can select the Custom Music station from any radio.
