Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Music loaded but not recognized under Artist

This may seem like a stupid question but...looking at WMP I see the music that is in my e280 while it's plugged in. When I unplug it and search under "artist" for my music not all is listed. However, I can find the album when I just search albums. My question is why would not all albums by the same artist be listed under that artist? Again, while looking at my content through WMP all music is there, but when only using the e280, it's not all there.

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.
