    I have been noticing many of You have problems with your walkman audio playes be it Progressive jpgs, album art not showing, duplicate artists etc.
     
    So decided to make a set of tips and tricks for the walkman experience
     
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ALBUM ART EMBEDDING WITH MP3TAG
     ​
    You can embed albym art to files such as MP3, FLAC, ALAC, AAC etc with the MP3TAG software, you can do it on a single album or in batch mode[​IMG]
     
    Single mode.
     
    1.  select the files or the folder of your album, right-click and chose mp3tag on the menu

    PUTTING SONGS IN A SINGLE ALBUM INSTEAD OF ABC CD 1.. ABC CD2.. ABC CD X
     ​
    Some people hate CDs or well saying better their albums in the form of Album CD 1, Album CD 2, album CD 3.... Album CD N+1 [​IMG]
     
    1. select the albums you desire to convert to a single album, If you want make a copy to another location to avoid messing up your preciously tagged files
    1.png
     
    2. after selecting the right-click > mp3TAG in your folders, proceed to remane the tracks by hitting the TAG-FILENAME Command
    2.png
     
    3. Choode the format string as follows: %Track%- %title% and click OK
    3.png
     
    4. order bi directory by clicking on the path column and if necessary on the file name colum to order the files by directory from 1 to N per each "CD"
    4.png
     
    5.Hit the Autonumbering wizard
    5.png
     
    6. uncheck the "Reset counter for each directory" checkbox (will be from 1 to N or from M to N depending if you want to input a numeric value in the Start At text field
    6.png
     
    7. click OK and got to the TAG-FILE NAME option to rename the tracks witht he following command $num(%track%,4)- %title%  First value is the filed track and the second parameter is the number if leading zeroes in my case 4 because my walkman can stire up to 9900 FLAC at it's best
    7.png
     
    8. Optional: change the album name to other thing and click save

    Hope is useful i foundMP3TAG to be the best software for editing tags, you can also batch edit your files and replace certain parts of the tittle and so on

    How about playback of music by albums/artist that jump to the next album/artist instead of repeat/stop playing. When I was getting my first walkman, it really bugged me and I think this is  one of the common problem for the walkman first timer.
