The only thing i can suggest is to use iTunes. I dont' have an Ipod, but I use iTunes to change all my track info. It seems like it's the easiest to use to change a whole bunch of trakcs. You can copy and past whatever info - "ROCK" and just keep hitting 'next' > 'ctrl v' throught the whole album. give it a shot, n' tell me how it worked.
I had a similar problem ONCE, but that was with all the info on this one album. I changed it, transfered to my mp3 player and it was all unkown, but when i went back to file all the info was there. Somewhere along the way it got sorted out and now it's ok. *shrug*
Hi. I have a 20GB Ministry of Sound Jukebox (MOSMP036). The problem is if I use tagging software like MP3 Tag or Tag & Rename 3.2, when I transfer the files to my mp3 player through the Jockey software that came with it, the genre for every song shows up as "Other".
However if I right click the mp3 on my PC and look at the summary, the genre will be correct (for example Rock). If I look at the same file in MP3 Tag or Tag & Rename, the genre will still be Rock. If I transfer the same mp3 file to the mp3 player, it shows as Other. If I take the exact same file back off the mp3 player onto the PC and look at it, the genre says Rock (or whatever).
Even more bizarre - if I right click an mp3 in Windows and choose Summary, the genre will say, for example, Rock. If I click in there and physically type "Rock" over the top, then put the file onto the mp3 player, it shows up perfectly as "Rock".
So say I do this in Windows and put the file on the mp3 player - all is ok. Say I take it back off and use tagging software to change a different field, say album. When I put it back on the album change will be picked up correctly by the mp3 player, but low and behold genre will be back to Other, even though I didn't change the genre!
So I've narrowed it down to *any* time I write *any* tag information in tagging software, the next time that mp3 goes on the player the genre will show as "Other".
Very very annoying. Any ideas?
