Just got a Cowan J3...need a bit of help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

First off, this thing is amazing.....Never had anything but an Ipod, and this just destroys it in terms of sound quality....Ok, so here is my problem......Why are some of my albums songs in alphabetical order, and some aren't? It really is annoying. Also, some of the album art won't transfer and some will? Any help would be great!!! thanks

Maybe some of the tracks have track numbers, and some don't? That's the only cause I can think of...

As for album art, I had the same problem. Turns out that the J3 (and probably other Cowon players as well) only accept album art in JPEG format xD

For the album art the easy way is to put a file named cover.jpg inside of the folder album.

I have used long time ago a software to do that automaticaly in my whole library ... with success.

If the tags are correct I have no sorting problems at all.

Depending on where you are getting your music from you can have a lot of troubles with tags, just make sure everything is tagged properly. If you are having trouble with album art it might be a good idea to archive everything properly inside the music folder. I personally embed all my album art when I copy tracks to my J3.

What file format are you using? The J3 doesn't officially support m4a files, so that might be causing you some problems.
