The MP3 labels tell the player how to organize the indexes. There’s a artist tag, album tag, Genre, and a bunch more.
Compilation Sets (Greatest Hits) are a challenge. I really don’t want a hundred names of One Hit Wonders cluttering up my Artists list. Scrolling through 300 names isn’t fun on a tiny Mp3 chiclet arrow pad. Those Time Life compilations have a lot of songs on them. I just bought a new SanDisk Sansa Clip player just for my Time Life sets.
I’m curious to hear what strategies other people use?
I have thought about changing the Artist Tag to the album tag. That way I’d only get one entry in the Artist list. But, I hate to wipe out that information. It only takes seconds to replace all the artist tags with something else. To type that back in would take hours. :dubious:
What are you doing? How are you handling it?
I find the Time Life Sets are the best for my player when I’m traveling. It’s a nice mix of different songs in a single genre.
