Music moved to a folder called "Unknown" why?

Post by Springsteenfan » Wed Apr 01, 2020 8:24 am

I had started synching my HD to my Galaxy A10 and the SD card. But lost connection. When it restarted I noticed it had put the music afterwards into a folder called "Unknown". Yet I know every single track is fully tagged using "Tag & Rename". So I moved some of them over to the folder and albums they should have been moved to anyway, will doing this mess it up or not make any difference?

It depends on the Mask you used for Destination in the Device Profile (Tools > Options > Portable Device Sync). Review it, to see if it's mis-configured.

I wouldn't move files manually after the sync on the device. You can re-sync and set it to enforce the mask, which should move the files already on the device.
