    Hey all,

    OK, so I've scoured this site for any possible answers, but to no avail.

    When I transfered my mp3s to my Hero, most of the artist's names are listed (and their songs when you tap their name), but there is a good portion that are automatically categorized under the "various" and "unknown" categories. However, 95% of all my mp3s were acquired the same way via Lala.

    I've taken the sd card out and put it in my reader, and then dragged/dropped onto the card and then put the card back in.

    I've mounted the phone (that sounds so bad!), opened up the directory, dragged and copied my music folder to the card.

    Each time I've done this, I deleted all the music to start over.

    This is trivial I know, but for someone that is OCD like myself, it is driving me crazy having to go to either of these directories to look up a particular artist.

    Any ideas? Do I need a new MP3 player? Should I do something with the MP3s before I transfer?

    Thanks!

    Some of your mp3 files may not be tagged correctly. You need to download an mp3 tag editor which will allow you to quickly and easily see which files have missing fields, and fix them.

    Best (IMO) tag editor is mp3tag.
