Default Cowon A3 and ID3 Sorting


I'm thinking of purchasing the Cowon A3 but on the reviews I've read it says that it doesn't allow you to sort via ID3 tags. My question is what does this actually mean?

I currently own a Zen Vision M:60GB and I use the Zen Media explorer to access all the music files on my player and then click on an Album tab to sort by album and then I select all the songs on the album and then add them to the playlist I created. Is this what is meant by sorting via ID3 tags?

When I check on cowon america website it has a heading called Meta Data which lists ID3 v1, v2.2, v2.3, & v2.4. Is this doesn't mean sorting by ID3 tagging what does this actually mean?

ID3 tags are more or less the blips of information you use to browse your music on your creative players, identifying the Artist, album, genre, song title, etc etc.

It goes to folder and file name based sorting.

So you have your music folder
in it the organizing is 100% on you for albums or genres etc
