Right click on the music file while it is displayed on the Windows Media Player window - click on "Advanced Tag Editor" - you will be able to change the genre and several other pieces of information.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.You can download mp3 music files from the Internet toyour computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable.For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs tomp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and thencopy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable tothe MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.Click on this link for instruction on converting musicfiles to mp3 file format :-

My ipod won't organize the music, I've tried putting it in different folders. No matter where I put them, they all go to the same file on the ipod which is all music. When I look into the artist, there's...

Your MP3 player (which is not an iPod, by the way) probably displays the "tags" in your music files. These are the artist, album and song titles that are embedded in the music files themselves, and not related to the folders in which you store them, or the file names.

You will need to use a music manager to look at these tags, and set them appropriately. Music managers include Windows Media Player, MediaMonkey, Winamp and others.

Sounds like a firmware problem.

Run the Philips Device Manager to repair the device. This will format the player and re-load the corrupt firmware.

Freezing up when i hook up the usb cable to my real player

You can try this, but I was completely unable to get a similar model, the SA4111 to work on my computer using any method at all - this was not their best product:

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Make sure you have installed the Philips Device Manager from the product CD. This includes the drivers for the SA4010.

File transfer is done using the Sync function of Windows Media Player.

If you have already installed the software, and are trying to transfer songs with Media Player, try the repair or restore option from the Philips Device Manager. This will format and re-flash the firmware on the player.

If the player still won't take your files, make sure you are using .MP3 or .WMA files. The SA4010 will not take any other formats. (such as .AAC)

If you have the correct file type, then the problem may be due to USB driver conflict. Follow this link for more information:

Try deleting all tracks and load a non-protected (Non DRM) track.

Not all Philips players will play DRM protected tracks.
