When I drag a folder to the albums folder on the clipzip some times the name of the album I dragged shows up on the clipzip some times it does not. The songs will show up but not the album, if I plug the clip into my computer and look through windows explorer the album folder on the clipzip shows the name of the album in the album folder, the reason I want the name of the album available is so I can select that album to play on the clipzip any help thank you
The Clips, like the majority of other players out there, generally use “ID3 tags”–data stored in the music or audiobooks files themselves–to display info. on the screen. It is very possible that with the files you are having issues with, the ID3 tag data for your files never was filled in–it often is, when you get a file, but not always. To add that info. in or to edit it, you can use an ID3 “tag editor” such as MP3Tag (Internet freeware). www.mp3tag.de/en/
When I drag a folder to the albums folder on the clipzip . . .
Sounds like you might be in MTP mode, but you should be putting your music folders (artist and.or album) in the main MUSIC folder, not the Album folder. If memory serves, in MTP mode there is a visible Albums folder, but this is where the player stores thumbnail images of the album art. It is not for music files.
