unknown album


I have had a Sansa Clip for three days now and I am absolutely pleased with it. Superb sound quality!

There is just one tiny little thing that irritates me a bit: all my tags have got just artist + title - nothing else, no album. This is standard for all my mp3 songs.

The Sansa display (consequently) shows the following for each song:

first line: artist

second line: title/Unkown

for instance:

dave brubeck

take five/Unknown

I guess the /Unknown refers to the album that I have not tagged. Is there any way I can get rid of this /Unknown bit_._ It isn’t really all that important but someone just might have an idea.

If you’re in XP, select all the songs, right click, go into Properties.  Click the Summary tab, and select Advanced if it’s not already in Advanced view. 

Put a space or a small symbol in place of the blank.  It’s a workaround, I guess.  I haven’t see any settings for changing what the clip displays. 

Good luck! 


Clever suggestion!

Also, you can use a tagging program to mass tag your tunes, especially if your folder structure indicates album and artist–many tagging programs can use this information to fill the tags in easily.
