if i'st possible to also get all the file details such as Year, Genre,
Writer, Director, Contributing Artist & Comments etc.

Are you talking about the ID3 tags in mp3 files? I don't think the "dir" command can do that. You will need a third party program or write yourself a script in Perl using the MP3-Tag Module.

I am talking about video files.
