    No idea why.

    some albums I move over show up as 'normal' in Albums, Artists, etc with the album cover and some just come up as unknown...even though they are pretty much identical files.

    Not the end of the world, but if I load 5 albums and 3 are lumped as 'unknown', all the songs end up lumped together as one big 'unknown' album so I can't listed to it separately.

    Any ideas?

    Are your tags properly labeled? Are they all ID3 version 2.3 tags or are they out dated?

    I usually move my music to my PC and use ID3tagger and go through all the hard coded tags for the music before moving it to my phone. Then I can add all the info I need, artist, title, album name, etc,

    ID3 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Basically it is part of the MP3 file that players can see so they can display the Album, Group, Track, etc..
    As there is no true "standard" for this system, not all players can see all variants of the ID3 tags, plus not all MP3's have the tags included.

    Same thing happened to me. Checked my mp3 files with mp3tag, a Windows app, and some files had both APE and ID3 tags. The Music app doesn't like APE tags apparently (really?)

    So I removed the APE tags, deleted the mp3s from my Z30 and then copied them back. No more Unknown, save and except for a single mp3 that I can't figure out what the problem is (despite deleting all tags and then manually entering them back several times).

    Search MP3TAG in Google. Excellent program.
