    Easy people, after getting a new phone that insists on organising my tune folders for me, i now have an 'unkown artist' folder as long as john holmes cock!

    Soooo... after some research, it seems you need a program to edit the ID3 (aka MP3 tags)... anyone recomend some, or know a way to not have to edit it in a program?

    did a search but mp3 & tag are 'too short or too common to search'!

    in windows click on the file and go to properties. in the details part of that you should be able to change all the artists and album etc.

    is that what you mean?

    You don't need any software. Just right click > Properties > Details Tab. If you are using XP then you need to click advanced to get the full details.

    Yes, but with MP3 tag you can also embed a thumbnail and other stuff too. ;)
