I drop my music if the following way.

Media Card\Music\Artist name\Album\ of course technically you can just drop your music in the Music folder and the BlackBerry will read the information from the file (artist, album, etc).

Cheers for the quick reply Steve086


Media Card\Music\Artist name\Album\


I have been naming like this:- Media Card/Artist/Album



Will this be what I am doing wrong?



Also how do I turn volume down any further when on lowest, its still very loud i.e. when I am in bed it's on all night, still loud, need it lower, is there a way Steve086

Might not be I organize it like that because that is just my preference, you can organize however you see fit.





What type of program are you using to manage your music on your PC?





So when you click on artist or album from with the music section the songs aren't being organized or displayed corectly right?



Unfortunitly that is probably the lowest you can have it one bar, just make sure audio boost isn't on, you can find audio boost in the options part.

Feel free I think I got my pin somewhere in the BlackBerry messenger buddy thread. pin:31b7fe9f

Wierd it sounds like it might be the tags in the file itself.

Is the music organized correctly in Windows Media Player? Have you ripped the music yourself from CD's?

What you might want to consider is download iTunes and have iTunes organize your music this way on your computer you will have an iTunes folder inside My Music and inside that iTunes folder your music will be organized by artist then albums.. Then you can just copy and paste it all to your BlackBerry. Then its your choice whether to keep iTunes or not.

I think Steve is correct - the FILENAME is NOT generally used by the BB to display music info in Media Player. You need to have the correct information in the mp3 tags and you can do that with any number of programs that organize mp3 files.

So while I do organize my files on the BB by composer/composition into folders, it is the mp3 tags that allow me to select genre, album or artist or title, etc
