2) If I use Winamp Sync to copy the compilation the album artist info seems to get lost. Each Song gets copied into a different folder on the SD card (i.e. song artist name). In this case Winamp for Android shows one Album for each song.
Is any developer reading this and can confirm this?
I'm not a developer, but I can confirm that I get this exact same behaviour with my setup, which is:
- Samsung Galaxy S phone (Android)
- Winamp 5.623
If there is a workaround to this ANNOYING feature/bug could someone post the instructions to this thread? I looked at the other threads that are referred to here, but couldn't find help.
Clear instructions on how to get Winamp transfers to Android phones working so that the Album Artist ID3 tag works as it shoud with 'Various Artists' value would be SOOO much appreciated. Please post the instructions to this thread. Thanks
