If you've set things up properly you will see a poor attempt of showing the folder path when navigating, nonetheless you will be navigating by folder. Yes, their User Interface sucks.
Thanks for the help but it's not working for me. When I press the folder icon that comes up after pressing the lower left icon on the home screen while playing a song from a compilation, it takes me to one of the same messed up "folders" I get when going through the Folders icon (the one in your screenshot). And on the now playing screen, when the folder icon is chosen it is not showing the folder path - it shows the original album name the song is from (not my compilation folder name), so it is obviously still using tags.
That "Folders" link is a complete mess*, with many folders and subfolders that make no sense at all. Is it my setup?? When I first downloaded the player I clicked "automatic" setup. Is that not recommended? I downloaded the free "Eval" edition. Is it possible this is different from the paid version? Wouldn't make sense but you never know.
Here's another strange thing. After clicking the lower-left icon, I tried the other options for the hell of it and the one on the right (I think it's supposed to be Year), brought up the CORRECT compilation song list! But after changing songs I can't get that to happen again, and anyway there is no way I can find to navigate to that correct list, whatever closet in Neutron it is hiding in.
This is very frustrating. Folders was working great on my Rockboxed clip zip. Does that folders navigation option link work well for anyone else? Do your folders (esp compilations) contain the correct folder titles and song lists WITHOUT USING TAGS??
When I click that icon, I get two "folders", named "All Folders" and "storage". When I click on "All Folders", I get a list of all the albums with each one being listed THREE TIMES for some reason. When I click on "storage", I get "emulated" and "sdcard0". When I click "emulated, I get "0" and "legacy". When I click "legacy", I get "All Songs", "DCIM", "Download", "Music", and "Ringtones". Clicking on "Music" gets a list of each album once, but the songs in the compilation are in the wrong order and without all the songs. In some other folder the comp is listed more than once with different sets of songs in each one.
