    Hmmm, not sure as I don't used the standard music player (I'm guessing you are?). Perhaps you could try another player, such as "Mixzing"?

    P.S. I don't think people are ignoring you, just probably don't know the answer!

    you need to manage the id3 tags of the mp3's, you can get software that does this for your phone or PC, it ensures that each track is correctly identified

    If I had to guess, I would say Jaffa hit the nail on the head.

    OP, try a free software title called Mp3tag. It should be able to help you correctly label your files.

    I find the best way is to put your micro card into your computer via an SD holder, The card will show up as a new drive. Right click this drive and format the micro card. Then simply drag and drop your music files from your Microsoft 'Music Folder'. Job done with no hassle.

    Yes, the apps that play music don't really care what directory structure the mp3 files are in. They only look at the id tags to organize music under artist/album.

    It's pretty simple, open a folder within mp3tag and it will show you the tags for all of the files within that folder (and subfolders).

    Since youre getting 'unknown artist' etc you will probably find that most of your files are untagged, so you will have to add the tags yourself. The most important tags are:

    title (the name of the track)
    track (the track number)

    You can either edit fields individually (or select a bunch of files by, say, the same artist and rename them all at once), some help on this here: Tags - Mp3tag Forums

    OR you can use the 'convert filenames to tags' option, which is much quicker. Help on this here: Converter - Mp3tag Forums

    OR you can have mp3tag go off to a central database and figure out what tracks you have and tag them automatically (i've never really tried this but apparently its very good)

    Hi thanks for the reply.
    i downloaded the app mp3tagger which does the job you explained HOWEVER when im copying across albums i only get half of the song the other half showing as 'sorry this player does not support this type of audio file' yet im converting the whole album at the same time.

    Could it be the sd card or something else????
