Music from burnt cds...won't go to assigned folder

I have created folders and stacked my music in each according folder on my computer but when i turn on my sansa e250 it deletes the assigned folders and throws all the burnt music into an "unknown artist" folder. i would like to be able to dictate where my songs are stored on my mp3 player and seperate them by artist but it's just not letting me. it's ridiculous and frustrating. what can i do?

    I think i can help... but i need to know how you are getting your music onto your device. Are you using a program such as Windows Media Player or are you going into 'My Computer' and copying the music files into the device's drive?

Thats the way the software works. I'd suggest using an option like within winamp - where it looks for media tags and fills in all the appropriate information as to artist and genre for you. Winamp will do this with songs that have absolutely no information in them whatsoever (like burns) but it cant with homemade files like your buddy's garage band. The only way to seperate it besides folders is within playlists.

Got an MP3 player dont know how to use


When you connect the MP3 player to your computer with the supplied USB cable then computer detects the player as an external storage device or a Removable disk, you can then view the folder on your MP3 player. Open the music folder and create a new folder on the player exactly the same way you create a folder on your computer's hard drive. To organise your music, make a folder name with the name of the music album and place the album's MP3 files in this folder, then copy the mp3 files from the computer into this folder.
You will then be able to select the music you want to play by the music album folder. To delete a file from your MP3 player, connect the supplied USB cable to your player and then plug it into the USB port of your computer.
The computer will detect your player then click on this device to view the files, you can then click on the music file to highlight the file and then press the Del key to delete the file off your MP3 player. MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

Connect your MP3 player with the supplied USB cable to your computer. The computer will detect this as an external storage device, then click on this device and go to the music folder. You can create a new folder/s inside the music folder and you can copy your mp3 audio files into the folders you have created.
You most likely need to convert your audio book files into mp3 files.
