No Titles Appearing on MP3

Posted by stir_fryi (My Page) on

I bought my DD a cheap ($25) MP3 player. I ripped music from her favorite CDs to my laptop. Used Windows Media Player to create a playlist and sync it to the MP3 player.

Worked ok -- only problem is the MP3 player is not displaying the song titles.

Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening?

did you go to to automatically get the CD's playlist.

some CD rippers automatically do that (if enabled)

RE: No Titles Appearing on MP3

Copying the songs with Media Player or some others does not write the header information to the file on your PC. Before feeding them to the MP3 player, look at the song files' Properties with Windows Explorer. You can edit the Title, Album, Artist, etc there.
