Default Playing MP3 ripped from my old CD collection

I'm having a really annoying issue trying to get MP3 onto my Nexus 7, i've carefully ripped a bunch of old CDs, put the files into folders and copied them to my device......

<Artist1>
-----<Album1>
----------<Track1>
----------<Track2>
----------<Track3>
----------<Track4>
----------<Track5>
----------<Track6>
-----<Album2>
----------<Track1>
----------<Track2>
----------<Track3>
----------<Track4>
----------<Track5>
----------<Track6>

But once on my device, the system has somehow lengthened the folder names and added punctuation etc, but it's turned the above into.

<Artist1>
-----<Album1>
----------<Track6>
<Artist1>
-----<Album2>
----------<Track6>

<Artist1>
-----<Album1>
----------<Track1>
----------<Track2>
----------<Track3>
----------<Track4>
----------<Track5>
-----<Album2>
----------<Track1>
----------<Track2>
----------<Track3>
----------<Track4>
----------<Track5>

If I FTP into the device, the folders are named exactly how I left them, but in media player and Winamp, they appear as aboveIt's driving me f**king nuts, why can't I just see the lovely neet folders I organised on my PC????????
I assumed the device was checking the file names against the freedb, but it does it even if the device is disconnected from the internet!
