So I'm not sure why you are having that issue
I'm not sure either. I took a song that I did not already have in my library on the Pilot and grabbed just the first 30 seconds. I then used foobar2000 to make sure the tags are as I usually have them (both id3v1 and id3v2.4). WinXP properties shows the tags properly. Switched to Files & Folders mode, dropped the file on my SD card (2gb microsd in adapter) and I have the same problem as before. I attached the file, try it out if you like.

should be

Artist: Otyg
Album: Galdersång Till Bergfadern
Title: Blåkullafärden

shows as (the Ặ is mostly a guess, but the other two unintended characters are exactly as shown - CJK ideogram and pound sign)

Artist: Otyg
Album: GaldersẶng Till Bergfadern肠
Title: BlẶkullaf£rden

Folder Browser on the Pilot gets it right.

Update: If I use Mp3tag to write ONLY id3v2.3 with UTF-16, it does work via MSC. So, I guess I want UTF-8 and id3v2.4 support.
