Hi All,
I've got a few problems to sort out with the MCi500h, but will start with this one.
I've put a load of my songs into MP3 format, and copied them onto a disc.
I retagged them all to have the same Genre and same Album name, for example Genre =70s Music, Album=Sounds of the 70s, then copied them to the Hard Drive.
I'd expect them to all be under one folder, but when I look at the track listing there's stacks of the same Album but some might have only 2,3 or more tracks in the folder.i.e Sounds of the 70s, but it might have 20 Albums all with the same name.
Is this normal?
Also although i have plenty of room on the hard drive it doesn't show the tracks I've transferred sometimes, is this due to the limit of usable track/genre/albums database?
But thats a catch 22 situation because of how the transferred track are stored, as mentioned above, so that is filling up the database.
I thought about just deleting the lot, but it's took ages to get where I have already.

Hello ALL, just a bit of info I'd like to share regarding the Track Listing Problem I had.
Firstly, to get everything into one "Folder" it's best to alter all the MP3 tags, eg Genre 70's music, Album - 70's Music etc, ALSO make sure the Artwork is the same, otherwise that too will create a separate folder.
So if you have, for example, 100 songs labelled 70's music, you will get 100 different folders if the artwork for them all is different.
Hope this helps anyone for future problems.
