got my 8 gb fuze a few weeks ago. my previous player was an old sony walkman (~4 years old) that sorted uploaded files by the windows file structure i had them in (ahh, the old days…). so this is my first player that uses MP3 tags for organizing by album, artist, etc.
in the past week, i’ve been slowly going through my collection to edit tags on songs so that they suit my preferences (taking “the” from the beginning of artist names, etc.) for easier search on my fuze. i’m using winamp (5.63, current version) as my comp’s MP3 software, and sometimes use it’s “AutoTag” feature to fill out the tag info. after uploading some of these revised MP3s this morning (through MSC), though, i noticed that some albums are reading as “Unknown” on the fuze, and after looking at individual tracks, i notice gibberish characters (and some japanese, oddly enough) for the track name. everything plays fine, just the albums and track names are messed up (artists listed correctly). i haven’t done any deep research into what connects the “bad” tags to each other (the AutoTag feature, maybe?). I’m just wondering if anyone else has seen this problem.
