Install mp3tag and allow it to add to context menus, an option during install. Set Write to ID3v2.3 ISO-8859-1.
The Fuze does NOT read ID3v2.1 tags, which may have been coming out of Tag & Rename. It also does not read ID3v2.4 tags.
Simply by opening a folder/album (right-click for the context menu), highlighting all files and Save (under files) you can fix the version.
You can also very efficiently dump the album art. Highlight all the files and if the album cover shows up in the Mp3tag window, go to View, Extended Tags. Hit the little floppy icon to save the art as folder.FILETYPE. Hit the X to remove the imbedded art.
If you’re lucky, the art you saved will be folder.jpg and you’re done.
If the art was a .png or .bmp instead, it will save as folder.png or folder.bmp. You can open that in Windows Paint, resize it if it’s too big and save it as folder.jpg. You might want to dump the bigger .png or .bmp file, or make sure that when you transfer the album that you delete folder.png from the Fuze.
There is an upper limit on the size of the database that displays songs on the Fuze. Longer filenames and more tag into will fill it up faster, and you may well hit that limit before you fill a 32GB card.
