    Hey, generally music set up is good, much better than on the Blackberry. However, when I go into the album folder all the songs show up from that album as individual albums; on some of them when I click, it will show about 3 songs, others 1 etc. Also, showing 3 of the same song, not sure how that occurred but can probably fix that. Just wondered if anyone had come across this and had found a solution. many Thanks.

    You should download mixZing and Astro file manager from the marketplace. MixZing will show all of your albums, even the ones that are missing ( it also plays videos that the stock player doesn't recognise) and if you use Astro you will be able to find duplicates and delete them.

    This could be the same issue I had with my Zune..

    Download a tag edit application such as:

    Mp3tag - the universal Tag Editor (ID3v2, MP4, OGG, FLAC, ...)
    The Ultimate TagScanner: Download

    And check how your MP3s are tagged up.

    In my experience it is usually a tag conflict between 'Artist' and 'Album Artist' with compilation albums being the most troublesome.
    You should be able to make either of those applications automate the process for you to speed everything up a lot. Good luck :)

    As for mixZing, i've seen it recommended a lot on here so I gave it a go. I just thought it looked ugly next to the default HTC music app :p

    I edited that out ;)

    I just reinstalled it and I think I must have installed the old lite version previously. This does look better now :)

    $7 is a little steep though :(

    Which formats? I'd want to play MP3 and er.. MP3

    If you mean video formats than nothing beats yxflash right now and even that is pretty poor.
