Id/Tags errors after album folder transfer from PC

Recommended Posts

 Maybe I'm missing something but if I burn an album via ITunes to a folder on my pc desktop and transfer the folder to my mobile device (smartphone), Poweramp sees it as Unknown Artist/Unknown Album and I have to manually enter in all information except track name...

Can this be rectified somehow?.....I currently have 579 songs that need tagging!

If ID3 tags are not present in the MP3 files then there's not much Poweramp can do about it. Have a look at your source files on the PC using something like Tagscanner and see if they contain valid ID3 data.

 Can I add tags to the files using this software while they are still on my pc?

Yes, in fact it's very much the easiest way to do it. Put all 579 files into a PC folder and get TagScanner to read them all (it can also crawl subfolders if you want) and you'll get a long list showing you what is tagged and what isn't for each file. It can even batch process them all and try to build new tags from the filenames (assuming the naming format is consistent for parsing).
