pretty sure I have mp3 tags
thanks zombie_h and zoonie4howard,
what you said made a lot of sense even though I had never thought about mp3 metadata.
After learning a bit, I am pretty sure that I do have the tags in my mp3 files.
In itunes, if I do Get Info, the data shows up, in win7 file explorer it shows the artist, album, etc.
but I download mp3tag to make sure and it shows it as well. I even deleted the tags (from a copy of the file)
using mp3tag and then windows doesn't show artist, etc. and the file got smaller.
I tried to attach (I am not trusted yet, so I couldn't) a screenshot from mp3tag on a file I actually
transferred back from the 840G via usb to make
sure that it was the same file as in the phone. It even showed the cover art. Any ideas why the music
player in the phone doesn't like this?
