    The problem is that Xperia seem to remember the genre of the files before I corrected them. For example, if a song has genre as "JPOP" and I change them to "J-pop" that song will be both genre "JPOP" and "J-pop"

    so I have to scroll right 3 times to change genres from "J-pop" to "OST" (J-pop -> JPOP -> J-Pop -> OST) which is not what i want.

    How to completely replace the old genre so that it not appear in Xperia genre list?
    (many of the songs has come with random genre from different place, and I try to change them to proper one.)

    Edit, it seem that when I make the change, it completely replaced it.

    but somehow it still remember the old genre(which I want to erase it)

    I believe all song information is read from the mp3's id3 v2.3 tags. Perhaps try removing the battery to do a full restart of the phone to clear any cache?

    A factory reset just changes all your setting back to default. Removing the battery would clear the cache because flash memory cannot retain it's data without power.

    Which software do you use to organize your music?
