I have recently purchased a new computer which is running XP x64. Now whenever I transfer any mp3s to my Sansa Clip the id3 tags seem to be gone or not working. All the files come up as Unknown artist Unknown Album. If I use my old laptop to transfer the same files then it comes up correctly on the Clip. I also noticed on exporer on the new machine that the properties page for the mp3 files does not show the id3 info but if I open the file in winamp and use winamp to view the id3 then it shows up fine. I did some googling and apparently the explorer thing is a known bug in x64 xp
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_XP_Professional_x64_Edition#Windows_XP_Professional_x64_Edition “ID3 tag information from music files are not viewable in the Windows Explorer.”
Why would that affect the files that I transfer onto the Clip ? How can I get my files onto it and have it show the proper info ?
