I have had the problem too with my MP3 files when I drag-and-drop the files on to my player (a Sony NWZ-A818) using Windows Explorer. Even though the year information is there in the ID3 tag on the player, it shows up as "Unknown." I also had this problem when using MediaGo (music management software) to load music on my player. Added: I just updated to the latest version of MediaGo and it appears this problem has been resolved. I loaded some songs on my player with the new version of MediaGo and the date appeared on my player.

The only way I was able to get the date to show is to use some form of music management software to load music on my player. Music loaded via MediaMonkey (which I use) and Windows Media Player will show the year on the player.

There is one program that you can try that will allow you to drag and drop files on your player, Content Transfer. It's available as a free program on the Sony website.

It allows you to load songs on your player by dragging and dropping them into the Content Transfer window and they will be loaded on your player with the date appearing. It will also allow you to drag-and-drop songs and playlists from iTunes on your player.

I hope this helps.
In Use
Player: Sony NWZ-A17
Music Management Software: Media Go 3.0

Headphones: JVC HA-S140
