    When I transfer mp3 files onto my Galaxy which is USB mounted I can see the various music albums in file explorer. However, when I open the standard music player only a few of the albums are recognised.

    Instead the songs are just scattered under "Songs". I have tried with various music players from the Market but the result is the same. This happens even though the songs are tagged.

    Is there any way to make Music Player recognise the various albums?

    Thanks!

    I downloaded Tunewiki from the appstore and it works like a charm. Even shows the lyric and syncing it while the song plays.

    it should just work with Title, Artist and Album taging.
    Which is the problem, the Album sorting or the album covers not showing up?

    I have the same problem... the music on my computer is divided by albums
    (folders) but when I transfer it to Galaxy I get a mess in the player.

    folders are not actually albums, they are logical folders that give you a nice visual on your desktop os
    as for as the id3 tags are concerned a folder doesnt mean anything really
    for example if you were to use foobar, winamp and scann your "my music" folder in windows and displayed songs by album then it would be the same as your phone

    you need to get into the habit of batch editing the files or sourcing songs that have already got the id3 tags correctly set.
    incorrectly tagged songs are usually a product of freeloading

    there are lots of tools out there for free that can edit tags for songs in batch

    One such tool is Musicbrainz Picard, it fills as much info as possible to the files (based on data in the Musicbrainz database).

    PicardDownload - MusicBrainz
