Default e280 unknown album

I have a E280. I had downloaded music to two different albums so I could play them separate. I went to add songs and things got messed up. I was using Windows media. I deleted everything and sync'd again. including a few new songs. When I finished and did the safe remove, i opened the device and it showed an extra "unknown" album. This does not show up when i go into my computer to look at what is in the device.
I have gone thru this about 10 times in the last week and a few days ago i even changed to Media Monkey with the same results. I have checked that the album setting is the same on all songs and have tried downloading directly to the device without using windows or monkey. Also it is the same songs each time with duplicates on some.
Should I Format? Any help would be appreciated.....Jim

Did you check the tags, e200 series was always picky for me till I remove all the v1 tags. Download Mp3tag, it's free and look at the file in question.

I agree with WalkGood, it sounds like a tagging issue. Also MP3Tag is great! Quick and easy.

PS - Media Monkey has additional fields that MP3Tag does not. I.E. Composer, Artist, Album Artist. I had run into tagging issues when using my Zune. I discovered the additional "artist" fields by using Media Monkey. Once fixed (through MM), my tagging was fixed on the Zune player.
