    How to Change 'Unknown Artist'

    Hi,

    My first smartfone, and my first post here.

    I've been downloading music. Many songs/artists/album/artwork shows up fine. Many don't.

    So...how do I 'fix' a song that comes over as 'unknown artist'?
    I use ASTRO to navigate the file-system. I can move files around. I can change their names. I can create/name directories/files.
    But I haven't figured out how to change 'unknown artist' to 'Miles Davis'.


    Once I've resolved this, I'll be asking other questoins about how to download/store/maintain/organize my music.


    Thanks,
    Pliny

    Well, I'm not sure which app you're using, but many 'free' song apps won't come with album art. Some have options to search for the album art.

    I don’t know whether there is an option in Android or not. I used to change the name of the artists in my PC. In PC select the file and go to properties and click the summary tab. There you can change a lot of things and you can add a description to the file too.
