    Exclamation Any fix for lost artist info?

    I just rooted my phone, now with CM6.2....so went from 2.1 to 2.2. First of all, a lot of my info on sdcard is now in the 'mnt' directory. Why?? Second, now I have music that has all info but artist...which is pretty important. I am aware of tagging, but why would it happen to all formats of my music, and how do I fix it without going through 1000+ songs individually, whether it be by PC program. (Which one) or by phone. I have tried tagging programs and media players that tag...iTag didn't helped, btw. I'd really appreciate any help!

    Maybe try media monkey (PC) ?

    I used it for album art a long time ago and it did pretty well at having both automation and one-by-one fixing....

    I haven't used it in awhile though...

    btw please post back if you ever figure this out or find something that you like.

    I, and I'm sure others, would benefit from any tips you find

    I open up my music in iTunes, and fill in the information, then drag the song to my desktop, then send it.

    I've heard iTunes mangles the genre info in the ID3 tags though... using some proprietary format. This may have been fixed though I'm not sure. I don't think I'll ever install iTunes on my pc

    Album art grabber from the market works pretty good.

    No worries, would have been cool though. Ultimately there needs to be a new CDDB project that can do this kinda stuff imo.
