Issues with misnamed, "unknown" folder names and multiple genres for 1 song
Let's preface this by saying this is my first player other than an iPod. They lost me when they didn't include Bluetooth in the latest iPod Classic "update." Obviously I turned to the X7 for capacity, audio quality, external speaker and bluetooth. Essentially everything Apple refused to address in the Classic. I understand that managing the music in something other than iTunes will take some getting used to, but this is really frustrating.
I have tried using both drag/drop via Windows Explorer and the included COWON Media Center software to get music onto the X7. We have a mix of MP3 and FLAC files. Our folder structure is Artist/Album/TrackName. Once I have dropped some folders into "Music" folder of X7 HDD for some songs it names the Album "Unknown" for others it names the Album random garbage (symbols and letters). This also happens with Genres as well. I am referring to what the screen on the X7 shows. WTF is that!? When using Windows Explorer to look at the music folders/files in the X7 I check the Properties->Details of the files and everything is named correctly. I don't understand the discrepancy between what the X7 displays vs. the actual music file attributes!
I really appreciate the ease of Drag/Drop for adding music to the player, but this is maddening. What media software are you guys using to manager the X7 once you've got your music on it? Any suggestions as to how I can "prep" my music library before I drop it into the X7? Help would be greatly appreciated.
