    Ok so I have all of my .mp3's on my PC by artist, then subfolders, albums. I have retagged them all. I have a total of 15 artists, 26 albums, 340 songs. I dragged and dropped the folders over to the SD card under "Music". I then fire up the music player and my "Now Playing" screen, at the very top, under "Now Playing" it's only showing 1/100. I can scroll through the albums, but it's not listing all of them.

    How do I get all albums to show on the now playing screen? Or is it even possible? This is driving me nutz! :eek:

    If I am correct, you are looking for it to behave like iTouch/iPhone. Where you have your song playing and when you rotate the device to landscape all your albums in your library is viewable, correct?
    So far, in my experience, I havent been able to duplicate this in the Hero's music player. You can 'trick' it by selecting All Songs from the selection at the bottom. Downside to that is, while it lists all songs in your library they are all sorted alphabetically by song title. You now have a very random listing... Another option is to create a playlist or two with the albums but it's still not quite what you are looking for I think. That's the only advice I got for now, unless there's a trick I am missing as well...

    Well landcape mode doesn't work, tried it. Not sure what actually happened, but now in the "Now Playing" it's listing all of my albums which I can now scroll through. The 1/100 which was a list of songs, has now changed to 1/340.. Thanks for your input! :)

    I think it just takes a while to index all the folders... Same thing happened to me...
