You can plug the mp3 player into your computer and right click on the icon in the MY COMPUTER window, and click on FORMAT. It should come to a new window and click on start format. If this doesn't work, then call me to help you any further. Ask for Maxwell at 1-(239)-945-0583. Your fixer, Wild2DMaxx

My problem is when I create an album a lot of the songs are coming up as unknown. So instead of the album name coming up, all the songs for the albums go straight into the unknown folder on my i-pod.


Usually when an audio file shows as "unknown" in iTunes it is due to missing or corrupted ID3 tag data in the file. You can edit these manually by going into the properties of the file in iTunes but it is usually much easier to have an application do it for you. These applications are rarely free but they are great time savers.

My favorite to use is Tune Up. It has a great drag and drop interface and has a really good success rate when it comes to finding your songs and downloading the correct tag information. You can find it here : www.tuneupmedia.com

Mediamonkey is another good one:

I hope this helps.

Problem with my ripped music


I clearly understand your problem.....the best way to sort it would be to create a new music folder...put all album folders separately in this new folder....rename songs in the respective albums folder and then sync this folder to your player....try with a couple of songs first...if it works you can change your entire library as mentioned above....a difficult job...but helps manage your music better..:)

"unknown" album or artist


If you're using MSC mode (moving files via explorer), I believe the player ignores the directory structure for the most part, and uses the MP3 tags. I've had very good success using Media Monkey (which is freeware) to group the songs, and then transferring from there, in MTP mode.
