Well when I synced to it the first time it put folders by "genre" on the D2....now for some reason if I sync it puts folders of by "Artist"... Is there a way to p...

Mustang, I can't disagree with your observations and it seems that very few portable players really deal with the album artists at all. Heck, not very many computer programs even deal with it well. That is why I'm at Media Monkey. I don't really like the compilation feature of the IPods, although it...

MusicBringer, this is one of the things I wonder about. I am hoping to organize such that I don't have to scroll past the Beatles and scroll some more past Beethoven on my way to Brubeck. So it seemed like maybe I would want to start with some top tier folders to eliminate a majority of stuff that ...

Without knowing your exact situation, it sounds like the problem is that you have normalization turned on for whatever software your are using (or more likely your sound card). Normalization is used to compress the sound levels so that loud parts are softer and soft parts are louder thus making a mo...

In terms of the actual physical folder arrangement, it really won't matter too much unless you end up switching programs or need to utilize the files outside of MM (i.e. through Windows explorer). If you search through the forums you'll find many examples of how to organize items. Considering that y...

Hi emalvick - thanks for your reply. I hadn't thought about the Album Artist catagory very much before. I've just noticed it's helpful for complilation albums made up of various artists... is that its main function or am I missing something else here? .... Yest, that's primarily the main purpose (a...

I am curious as to the findings in regards to a big player as well. I was going to consider the 160 GB Ipod, but in searching the web, I've seen that the players have a few flaws with their firmware. For myself, I want to be able to utilize the album artist feature. When a person has 1000 CD's worth...

Well, it's probably too late now, but you can delete songs off of your Last.fm recently listened to tracks if it is within 2 weeks of the song being played. You just go to your recently listened to tracks and hit the trash can icon next to each track you want to delete. It takes a while for the chan...

Media Monkey works if the artist is listed in the tags as: Artist 1; Artist 2 all in the artist tag. I.e. you have one field with the ; delimiting the two different artists. I'm not sure how well this works with files like flac and wav, but it does work with mp3's although bug reports suggest that t...

I really think there needs to be a bit more flexibility in how the play counts work. Many people look at these things differently. The new format for MM3 will solve some problems for some people but make new problems for others. It seems like there should be a few options so those who like the 1/3 o...

Well, VBR saved a little on file size, but not enough to get excited about. By comparison, an hour installing Audacity + LAME and learning the basics of driving them, allowed me to strip ~10MB of encoded silence out of this one track! Now if I could only work out how to get Audacity to re-encode th...

Will, I think what you are asking for is getting a bit beyond what a database program should do. However, a great program for doing what you want is Audacity. I believe it keeps the MP3 Tags in place, although you'd have to test it out. I usually only use it for mastering CD's, which I don't need Ta...

I would say Lowlander is probably right. I've had various, similar, problems with album art that extends beyond MM. Either all the programs I've tried are buggy or there are just some inconsistencies with how album art is implemented in the mp3 scheme. I recently had a case where I had an image and ...
