I copy tracks onto the pc and change the property details to the right artist album etc but then when i copy the next cd in it copies over the top of like tracks e.g. track 1 copies over the top of the last cd's track 1. I can't find a way of giving the track a unique file name so it isn't copied over by the next track 1 i copy in.

Re: like cd tracks copy over each other
Since it's a CD, I assume, you use a software like Audio Grabber which will take the tracks from the CD and make mp3-s for you into a specified folder chosen by you. The problem is such software will always save the files as track1 and 2 and so on so it will always replace the previous ones. You need to change the names manually, or un-tick the "replace same file" option and then the file names will be track1 and track1-1 and so on.

I just had this problem as well. Find one of the files that is showing up on the MP3 player as "Unknown Artist" in your iTunes library. Right click that song/file and click "Get Info". You'll most likely find that the song is an "ACC Audio File" which happens often when you copy CDs or download from the iTunes Store. Close the info window about the song and then you can select the entire album or individual songs from your iTunes playlist that are showing up as "Unknown Artist". Once all the songs that you need are selected, right click again and select "Create MP3 Version". This will create a duplicate, however, so you'll want to go back to the main library in iTunes (or stay there if you are already there) and then remove the original "ACC" versions. You can, if you'd like, keep them on your hard drive, but you really don't need them because MP3 is the standard. From here you can remove those files from the Coby MP3 player and replace them with the new MP3 versions you have created in iTunes.
I hope this helps!
Delete songs and Format (Helps with try to delete BAD TRACKS and folders that will not delete Labeling Unknown Songs: open Windows Media Player and go to library click on artist. The sub folders will be named by the artists and the unknown songs will be in the sub that say's unknown. Click on unknown then right click on the title bar put a check next to artist and album artist. Right click song under artist or album artist or both and type in the name of the artist etc.... This change in your computers Music folders also then sync with your sansa or media player then load songs to it........
When you say every time you download some files and if it says UNKNOWN. Then i would say the ID3 TAGS could be an issue. This issue occurs when information in a track's
ID3 tag is missing or incorrect. ID3 tags allows information such as the title, artist, album, track number,
or other information about the file to be stored in the file itself.
In order to fix this up. Kindly follow any of these steps..
1. Open Windows Media Player. 2. Under Library, look for the file to be edited. 3. Right-click the file, then select Advanced Tag Editor. 4. Enter the proper data for the fields available (i.e., Title of the track, Artist Name, Album Name, Genre, Track number, etc.) 5. Click Apply then OK.
Using Windows Explorer 1. Look for the location of the file. 2. Right-click on the file, then select Properties. 3. Click the Summary tab. 4. Click the Advanced >> button. 5. Look for the information you want to edit under Property. 6. Click the space under Value to edit the information. 7. Click Apply then OK.
For those of you that are taking music from old cd's youtube etc., this is how you can get around it. I learned how to make what you'd call pseudo-albums when I first got mine. Ok so if you're like me and don't have the money for rhapsody and you're taking old cd songs or getting them off youtube, then here's what you do. When you're connected, go to the WALKMAN symbol. When in there go to the MUSIC folder. Make sure that you don't have anything highlighted. Inside the MUSIC folder go to FILE. And in FILE go to NEW. Click on FOLDER. You shold have a new folder with New Folder highlighted in the name area.
Now, for instance you want the album "Herzeleid" from the group Rammstein just name the new folder that. Then put in all the songs from that album. My next recommendation is to put something like Rammstein-Herzelied-01-Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen? for the first song. So that when you go to you album-folder your songs will be in the order they are on the actual album.
This is the easy way.
The hard way is to go into the properties of each song you put on your Mp3.
When there go into summary. When in summary if it says Advanced>> on the big button click on it.
On this page you should see: Music with Artist Album Title Year, etc.
go in and click on the far right to see a text box. There you wanna type in the name of the artist etc. And if you want an album this way then go ahead and type in the albums name on the next one down and the track number and make sure that the Apply button is "popping out" You can make sure by clicking on another box and click the apply button and viola! New album. The only thing is I don't know how to get cover art on their it might be in the file transfer disk which i don't have with me but if you need more information go to my file.
To put names on the tracks, artists, albums, etc. You must put the track on a media player. (Windows Media is what I use), go right click on the track and select "Edit". From there, you can name the track, and if you have the MP3 plugged into the computer, it should automatically change to what the computer as it saved as.
