I get no results for "Artists", "Titles" or "Albums" from Music menu

If those files weren't premarked properly on computer before synchronizating (you can do that in WMP 10 with advanced tag editor) it's not likely you'll get those results. You can add those info on computer and sync files again.
However, if all of these files are marked properly (have filled Artist, Title and Album sections in advanced tag editor) maybe database is corrupted - what you need to do is refresh it. (Settings>Extra>DataBase Refresh>Yes)

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.

All downloaded music is "unknown" artist, title etc.

Hey, I am not sure about ubunta but in Windows, you need a program that "tags" the MP3. Just google MP3 tag editor and you will find some programs that do this. Again, not sure about ubunta but give it a shot. What this program does is let you edit the MP3 to the fullest. Song title, artist, album, everything...Check it out....

Uknown artist and title

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
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.

Music files for ZUNE

Those files are probably DRM protected. Burn them to a disc and rip them into Zune. Be prepared to do some artist and album info editing.

Someone else mentioned this problem....I thought it might be that some files have different artist names (or vice versa?). You really have to keep a clean library with proper summary fileds (artist, title, track number, etc.). First of all, you should always be using MTP mode (USB mode in Sansa player settings). MTC mode is problematic. Are you using WMA or mp3 files? The other person had the same problem using WMA files....maybe using mp3s would fix this.

Sansa m240 MP3 Unknown Artist

I can confirm that the following method works for me (finally):

1. Download and install Mp3tag (I'm using v. 2.48)
2. "Change" or "Add" the directory in which the mp3s reside

3. Make certain you have data for "Artist", "Album Artist", and "Album" (fill in if needed)
4. Select all mp3s and click the "Save" icon (or right-click them and choose "Save tag")
5. Transfer back to your Sansa device
