Some Folders Not Tagging Properly

Recommended Posts

Hello,

So Poweramp recognizes folder structure and can tell what artist a song is from based on the folder it's in, but three albums of mine don't do that. They end up in the unknown artist and unknown album place. Any ideas why?

Most likely reason is that these tracks are not properly tagged. If you were to look at these albums using some other music player, you will most likely see the same. Poweramp has tagging capabilities itself or you can use one of the free mp3 tagging tools.

If you use Folders mode then any sorting and grouping is controlled purely by the path & folder name, and the filename.

However if you use the Library modes such as Albums or Arists then you need to make sure the tags in your music files all match up correctly. Use a PC program such as TagScanner to see what's stored inside each file, and change them where needed.
