Question about Samsung YPK5JQB 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?
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". http://www.gracenote.com/music/
