Default Compilations on X7

Hi All

First time poster...

I recently bought an X7 and am over the freakin moon! .... except for 1 thing. I don't like the way that you can't browse by "album artist".

The reason being is that all my compilations (such as Movie Soundtracks) are tagged with "Various Artists" in the album artist field and then the artist name in the artist field. This way I can easily sort my compilations in MediaMonkey.

I asked Kizune and he said that there is no way to add this as it would need ot be a firmware update...

So, I could re-tag all my compilations to have "Various Artists" in the Artist field, and then the artist name in the album artist field, however this would take a while and then it wouldn't display the artist name when the song is playing....

How does everyone else manage their compilations on the X7...

Any suggestions welcome

I think the X7 has folder browse mode, like the other Cowons, right? If so, just browse to the album folder and play from there.
