seaching folders in xp

Evening all,
is there anyway you guys can suggest searching for a specific file within a folder other than using the default search facility in xp,say a mp3 or picture,because xp's search seems to take a while i thought computers were quick but this search isnt to clever...any help would be truly apprecieated.

Why search - just open the folder, and reorganise the folder alphabetically, or by file type - you should spot it right away then.
