Hello everyone.


I hope some of you can help me out or at least enlighten me.

The category "Unknown artist" in my music collection seems to grow bigger and I wonder why this is happening. What am I doing wrong.

What I do is I rip my CDs with AutoFlac and EAC. I wonder if "android" cannot read ID/tag on flac files?

At the moment I use froidvillain 1.4.3


Thanks, Mikos.

well in the category (unknown) they seem to be in right order according to their respective albums. Itīs not like all the songs are mixed together.

But yes, I hope something can be done. At least itīs great to be able to play flac files.

Yes, programs in windows are reading the id tags correctly.

Thumbs up The solution
Yes! I found a great tool to deal with this issue. Its name is:

" 'Extended media scanner' - A scanner to scan FLAC or cue sheet music files into Android's database."

Thanks everyone!
