I recently got a YP-T7J. It's a very nice mp3 player and I have had only one small with it.
The Artist and Album folders and tags display "Unkown". When I've synrochnized songs to the player, I usually use the tag editor in Windows Media Player 10, everything works fine. All the folders show up on the WMP synchronization screen. IE:
However, when I use the Navigation menu in the player and proceed to the subfolders of Artist and Album and select them, the say Unkown. Here is an example of how things should appear
Artist- (Select Artist)
Album (Select Album)
Instead this is what appears.
Also when playing a song the same thing appears on the Id3 tags. The song title appears, but not the album or the artist names appear. In other words, I have put in the correct information, using the Windows Media Player tag editor, that should should be displayed but it isnt. Somehow the player cannot organize the songs even though the information is given
I have tried reinstalling the firmware but this didn't change a thing.
Also, I use a fairly old computer that we have upgraded through the years. If you need the specs I can give them. I do know that my USB ports are not 2.0. However, this should only slow down the transfer rate if I am not mistaken.

Sync to your windows media player....Labeling Unkown Songs: open Windows Media Player and go to libary click on artist.

You check your songs from your computer first; Right click on one of songs, select Properties, select Summary tab (check Artist, Album Title, and Title). If they are there, you should update new firmware (search SANDISK FORUM from google). If they are empty, it's right for device display the filename.
Open Windows Media Player 11
Right click on one of the songs that is showing up as unknown artist.
Select "Advanced Tag Editor"
Manually enter the artist information, etc.
To save time, you could also right click the song and select "Find Album" info - it won't find every album, but it will find most of them.
The real bear is that once you have edited the information in Windows Media Player, you have to delete the affected song off of your mp3 player and THEN reload the newly-edited song - or else your changes won't register on the mp3 player itself.
if the music was not odtained from a legal source then sometimes it will not sort itself out on the mp3 player, because the info on it is imcomplete, it will only show up on SHOW ALL SONGS, SONGS, or whichever the folder is that shows all the songs on the device.
To erase a music file, you must plug the K3 into the computer, and when a window pops up that says "Open in Folder", "Open with Media Player", etc. Choose "Open in Folder" then go to "Internal Storage", then choose "Music". From there, you can delete by artist, or if you click on a folder that has an artist's name for the title, you can erase by album. From there you can erase by track by double clicking on an album folder.
To erase, right click the folder you wish to delete, and select "Delete".
