Angry ID3 tag info not showing & song title problem - NWZS738FBNC

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased a Sony video Walkman with noise cancellation (model NWZS738FBNC) and I'm having a problem getting the player to recognize my mp3 files' id3 tags. Some of my files are showing the tag data correctly, but many show "Unknown" even though tag data exists. Is this a problem with the id3 version? If so, is there an easy way to convert tags from the old version to the new version or vice versa?

Also, I've noticed that the player displays the mp3 FILE NAME as the song title, rather than the id3 Title tag. Is there any way to change this? My problem is that my mp3 files all have long names (usually ARTIST - ALBUM - SONG TITLE) and I don't want the whole thing to be displayed when I play a song and it makes scrolling through the library by song basically useless. I can't rename my files because I often have many versions of a single song (live versions, remixes, etc.), so just using the song title as a file name is not an option.

I've had my player for only a couple of days now and already I'm getting frustrated........

Thanks for the help!
