When you view the Properties of several of the files in MMA, do the Album and Album Artist value show the correct information?

one additonal information, what i also do not understand:

the view in MMA per album (from the playlist with 367 tracks) shows me also, that there are 2 unknown artists, but the tags are 100% correct!
Do not know, why.

Is a copy to the card of my samsund S7 correct, or is sync the better solution? (in this case i would need help, how to sync)

Sync: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... evices/4.0'

Sounds like MMA doesn't have the correct tags.

The sync options seems to be rather complexe, therefore I tried the following:

I have deleted all folders with playlits in it and copied them again to the Samsung S7 card.

Result is the same:
2 playlists are fine, shown only as albums and not as single tracks in album view MMA.
But in one of these 2 playlists i have changed the album cover for all tracks, but the album view in MMA remains with the old album cover. Tried it 3 times with delete and new copy of the corresponding playlist folder, but the old cover remains for all songs: how to correct that?

All other playlist folders are shown in the album view of MMA as single tracks and not as album: any idea, how to correct that?

Last word: I had a look into the "folders" of MMA. Here I have a library showing all properly as wanted it (with the exception of the wrong album cover as described above).
In a first step I was happy, thought, that's what I am looking for. But if I open one playlist album, the playlist is sorted per artist and not per title-number. Can that view be changed?

Questions over questions, any help is rather welcome!!

I was further active in trying to find solution for above questions:

Deinstalled MMA on my phone, deleted all folders named "Playlists" and "MediaMonkey" manually afterwards.
Deleted furthermore the Playlists albums manually.

Installed MMA again, but this remains unchanged, what I cannot understand:
But in one of these 2 playlists i have changed the album cover for all tracks, but the album view in MMA remains with the old album cover. Tried it 3 times with delete and new copy of the corresponding playlist folder, but the old cover remains for all songs.

There must be somewhere else on my phone something remaining, which was not deleted or deinstalled. Is there somebody, who has an idea?
Other questions later...
