How i can change the genre of the song to organize my mp3


Open Windows Media Player 11
Right-click a song on your computer that you want to change and select "Advanced Tag Editor"
Change the Genre
Now, you must delete the version of your song off your GoGear (the ones without the genre), and then resync the newly-edited song using Windows Media Player.
It is slow and painful, but you cannot make these edits once the song is already loaded onto the GoGear. Also, you cannot simply sync the newly-edited songs onto the GoGear once you are finished with the edits, without first deleting the song off the GoGear, because the GoGear would otherwise think, "Hey, this song is already on here, I'm going to ignore you now!"

Making Folders & Deleting


You can make folders on your MP3 Player, but it will not be shown on the MP3 Player. It's useful if you would like to sort a specific artist/CD. When you plug the Mp3 Player in, it should have an "E" Drive. That's the MP3 Player. Then you delete a song like any other file.
