Samsung YP-P3 Mp3 Player and Emodio Software

Dear mr Samsung tech: I've owned the P3 for almost a year now. The player itself works great. the issue i'm having has to do with the Emodio software. Example: i had the following music cds ripped to my P3.1) Artist Everette Harp: Title of cd: Better Days and Artist: Joe Title of his cd: Better Days Example 2: Brian Colbertson; Title of his cd: Its On Tonite Artist: Sam Salter; Title: Its On Tonite.

ok, here's the problem: what the Emodio software does is, if there's 2 cds with the same album titles it deletes one of the artists album art, and combines ALL the songs under the other artist's name and album art that wasn't deleted. so you end up having 24 songs under one artist name, when in fact it should under two separate artists with their two separate album art covers individually.

this problem also exist if you have 2 or more artists with the exact name of a song on their cds, Emodio keeps one of the songs, regardless of the artist, and deletes or overwrites the others.

I tired to use WMP, but i had problems transferring the album arts with WMP, so i've been using Emodio up to the point. any suggetions ?

Thanks

cl5621,

If this is a compilation CD, then it may not be listing the original title, or all of the songs under the same title. Most music databases would do that.

But you're noting that you're ripping two artists that have the same album title? If that's the case, it may be possible to place an indicator in one of the albums (ie: Brian Culbertson's Better Days) to avoid confusion during the transfer.

Keep me posted.

Success !

That worked ! what i did was to add a letter or number to the title of the cd. now both artists and their songs list correctly.

thank you very much for your help.
