My mp3 player recently "crashed" so to speak. Where all the artists were listed it has "No Artist Found" or "" all across the screen. When I tried formatting it using the Device Manager and using Windows Media Player, it either says that the device cannot be repaired or that the action can not be performed. When I check the connections, the connections are fine, but my mp3 has frozen. I have to reconnect. After trying to format or during the process, the mp3 freezes and the computer does not recognize it anymore. Please help!

Songbird is unauthorized free music download website. Because they arent part of a large music selling company, they are more likely not to have the correct formats set for mp3 players or other music devices. You have to have the right formats to get organization for the songs to match with correct artist and album. Example: If there is a song that has format WMV and the song's album is format WAV,then its gonna confuse your music device, so the music device will put the WMV format song with the wrong WMV format album in its alphabetical order instead of the songs matching album WMV format. So restore your mp3 player and try to use a legalized music download website.

You need to check the information on your computer.
Right click on the songs that are not showing up under artist and look at the info for them. If they don't have an artist listed, they will not show up on your ipod in the artist tab. You can add the artist name and then sync your ipod and it will update your music information for you.
In the music menu, there is an option to search by Artist or Album as long as you have at least one song on the player that has an ID3 tag that lists the song's artist or album. Those are the only way of organizing the songs on this particular player.
If you use a fileshare program to download music, sometimes some of the song information is changed and/or deleted. The album information is probably still with the song, but the artist info isn't. It's really stupid but the only thing you can do is just find the song through albums instead of artist.
