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".

right click on the mp3 file...(c drive or sansa) properties/ general here is where you can also name the track.....summary is where you can fully name the track,year,track number,album,genre...your track name can look like this (name of trk - trk # - lp name - artist) or (artist - lp name - trk # - trk name)any way that suits you best....you can also break down in folder like for instance lets call this folder coldplay in this folder we have three lps (coldplay, coldplay live and coldplay again)
That's because the music you store in youre sony nw-e002 is not properly stored... you must create a folder naming AUDIO or if the problem still exist Try to make another folder naming MUSIC or MY MUSIC OR MUSICS OR MY MUSICS.... some of the mp4 mp5 etc they only read mp3 song only in the what program made by the programer example the mp5 player they only read music from the folder naming AUDIO... thats all... my name is irvin eser dont ya forget it...
You have to make sure that the ID3 tags have the album name on them. right click song, select properties, and edit the id3 tag. For more instructions, go to www.microsoft.com and search for "edit id3 tags in windows media player"
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.
I assume this is in a PC?
Simply right click each title whilst in the PC and click on 'Rename'
Or click file/save as/and give the file a name
This incidently will leave an un-named copy on the computer
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.
hello mate i have same problem but have resolved it go to samsung site usa and download new programme for the napster or the yepp version of mp3 player delete your program on mp3 player now upload new one on and it works,the napster one bundled with wrong software but this does work but you must go 2 usa site europe site no use,then the only issue you will have is player only accepts track numbers once and overwrites existing tracks but this is sorted out good luck it does work FRED UK
