Naming tracks on my new MP3 player

I have a wonderful MP3 player from Samsung that seems to work well in every respect. However, when I transfer tracks from my CDs onto it, they all appear as Track 1 Track 2 and so on. I now have something like twelve tracks unhelpfully called Track 1. Most songs seem to be OK, but I wanted to listen to a language course on it, which seems to be somethingit is not designed for. Any ideas?

Re: Naming tracks on my new MP3 player

The software that comes with your player uses an online database from "Gracenote" (link below)to name the tracks. When you copy from a CD the software recognises the disk & looks up the database to find the track info, if you are not connected to the internet or your firewall software is blocking the request it will not be able to retrieve the track info & will just name the tracks "track 1" etc. You can rename the track yourself in the program by highlighting the track in the PC software and pressing the right mouse button & choose "property" this opens a window where you can edit the track title but not the file name. You can update the tracks you already have by connecting to the internet then highlight & right click as before but now choose "get track info", the software will connect & retrieve the track info and ask if you want to change it. There is a problem with language CD's as they will often not be in the database and you will need to name them yourself. There are many helpful programs available (some free) to rename the tracks (technically known as ID3 tags). Search on the web for "mp3 tag software".

Make sure that you have transferred songs with SonicStage and not any other software. If you used a software other than SonicStage, format the WALKMAN with the menu itself and transfer songs with SonicStage.Get SonicStage from link below:

I have Sony NW HD5 MP3, had to replace hard drive in my laptop.

SONY Walkman MP3 players are incapable to transfer from the player to PC. It's a copyright thing. since your hard drive was replaced, your PC is no longer the same one that the player originally had tracks transferred from (according the the MP3 player).  So, ultimately, those tracks will remain on the player until you remove them, they cannot be transferred back to a PC. I understand the annoyance, it's a pointless function, but for some reason, it has importance to SONY.

Title tracks

You have to transfer it back to your pc then rename it, then delete song from mp3 player and copy over new named mp3 or cda. .cda is a clean track from a cd, you may have to convert it to mp3, if not neccassary, just rename track 23.cda as whatever you want as long as .cda remains, but this hs to be done on your pc first.
