it'll take time, and be a headache, but you could copy all your favorite samples into another folder, with seperate folders for different types of samples, so as not to mess with non-self contained live sets. if you just move them, live'll get mad... <sarcastically> samples are missing... click here for more information.
once this is done, just remember to audition, and organize new samples as you go, so you don't end up with 100gbs worth of unorganized samples(doh!).
or you could just get some good sample players, with huge libraries. these are usually fairly easy to audition, compared to clicking on stuff in live's browser. or stop using samples, as i'm sure some are thinking! :lol:
