Just purchased an 8gb fuze, and have had a few issues getting my library to properly show up. To begin, I’m new to the world of portable players, so learning as I go. Just getting exposed to id3 tags, etc. And realizing that I have a lot of m4a files that I need to either convert or mess with in some way to get working on the fuze. Here are the main things I need help with - any suggestions greatly appreciated!
My various m4a files either need to be converted (not too keen on this option) or I need to find a way to make them readable. Another forum thread suggested they were supported, but were not useable if they are copywrited - can anyone confirm this? the files are predominantly just things I’ve burned from CD’s
With MP3s, when I put them on the fuze (I’ve been dragging and dropping with the file structure set up to be /artist name/album name/tracks) there is another set of files that show up on the player under ‘unknown’ that are actually just empty copies of the tracks, with “._track#” in front of the title. So a track that is first on an album called “Europe Endless”, is correctly cataloged on the fuze, but is also copied into ‘unknown’ showing up as “._01Europe Endless” - this is just a cataloging pain, because I have to manually delete every one of those, and if I transfer a few hundred songs, I will start to hate this little player.
Finally, any suggestions for good tag editing programs that work on OSX and will update mp3 and wma?
Thanks in advance!
