    I am using music player on motorola xt5 and have installed an audio bible. I have made each book of the bible a separate album. In window 7 explorer I have changed the album name and artist name against each track. In windows media play each album shows up with a album name I made. However when I load all the album folders and MP3 tracks onto my phone sd-card some albums get named correctly according to the album name and with some the music player makes its own name. Also when it makes its own name it replaces the artists name with "unknown artist". Some albums get split in two with track one going to the correct album name while all other tracks go to the album name made by the player.
    WHY DONT ALL THE ALBUMS GET NAMED ACCORDING TO THE ALBUM NAME IN THE PROPERTIES RECORD OF EACH TRACK??? Can anyone suggest a solution? Thanks and God Bless

    From Google Play Store, download a free app called MP3 Tag Editor.

    Hi. I've just discovered that uploading my entire, correctly named music collection from my PC to Google Player, using Google Music Manager and then downloading it back again to my PC (I use iTunes so I downloaded it back to a new folder on my PC) renders all music that was previously coming up as "Unknown Artist" or "Unknown Album" on my Galaxy Note 2, now correctly named. Takes a while but it's worth it.
