Default Some song titles/album titles display as Chinese?

I'm sorry if this problem has been addressed already, but I couldn't find it in this forum or at the Sansa forum.

I just bought a 2gb Sansa Clip, and it seems to be very good except for a few strange glitches. Many song titles are displayed in Chinese (or some other Asian character set; I really only know that I can't read it). Also, some artist names and album titles don't show up at all (they are just displayed as 'Unknown'). I am sure that the ID3 tags are set, because when I read the Clip contents in my computer, Windows can see the ID3 tag information, and WMP11 can read them also. I don't think there is anything special about these titles: they seem to be normal English words without special characters, and other titles that do have special characters (specifically, umlaut-ed German titles) show up correctly.

Also, some songs are not grouped by artist or album correctly. That is, when I list by artist, some artists list twice even though they seem to have the exact same name. The same thing happens with album titles.

Has anyone else had this problem? I am using Windows XP, and the Clip is connecting via MSC mode (I can't get MTP mode to work at all, for some reason), and I am just dragging and dropping files to the Music folder on the Clip.
