Unhappy Artist Name Not Showing

Hi all,

I ripped my songs using DBpoweramp and I just couldn't get the artist name to show (it's "unknown") on the Z2.

I used mp3tag to remove "albumartist" field which fixed the "RTIST=X" problem..

It's just artist name now... I can't seem to find a solution for it.. been 6 hours since I started trying....

Pls helpppp

I have the exact same problem. Try ripping your cds with MediaMonkey. I find that works.

What does MP3Tag show in the Artist column? Also are these ID3V2 or ID3V1 tags?

I don't have a Cowon Z2, but for my players, I remove the ID3V1 tags and make sure that the Artist field contains what I want.

I had real problems with this too.

What I ended up doing loading ID3Fixer

also you'll probably find tagscanner to be a useful app too as the Z3 does an alphanumeric sort on the track names i.e and ignores the track number in the file itself.
