Music Player that will sort information correctly.

by denymyhappiness / March 26, 2011 5:00 AM PDT

I have noticed that windows media player for windows 7 is great, but when downloading music, it doesnt sort the information correctly. It puts the songs of albums all over the place.(example: Various Artists) Im tired of having to manually put in the information. I want say one band's albums to be the bands name. I dont want to have to go looking for them in the unknown , and such. I have all four BFMV's albums and one title is headed in japanese. Well becuase the wording is in japanese, that album is put in to unknown and I dont know how to change that. Is there a way I can fix this or download a new player that will do this atomatically? Or prehaps Im doing it wrong? I dont know much about this manual tech. Im not top notch comp savy, but I do know a few things. Im also noticing where I am saving the music , its directing it in several files and I do not know why. I have checked my preferences and its not giving me much options.

And why do you buy a Japanese album if you don't speak that language?

So you don't want to pay for your music and you don't want to do some manual work to organize it correctly. Maybe you want too much.
