Here is a bash script:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

c=1; d=1; mkdir -p dir_${d}

for xml_file in *.xml
do
        if [ $c -eq 501 ]
        then
                d=$(( d + 1 )); c=0; mkdir -p dir_${d}
        fi
        echo mv "$xml_file" dir_${d}/
        c=$(( c + 1 ))
done

Note: Remove the highlighted echo if the output looks good.
