    Well, not only does this thing not know anything about ID3 tags, but after I get all my ID3 tags together it seems as if its using a cached version. Its still displaying songs that aren't even on my SD card. Any way to clear this cache..?

    I've looked at a couple other music apps but haven't found anything I like.

    I'm a big fan of the original because it uses the real Last.fm app to scrobble and does it on the fly. Hmm.

    You can always use an app like SDrescan to have your Droid 're-scan' you SD card... which can help if you get what I consider ghost files (where there before, they have been deleted but still show up, or files you added that haven't shown up). I find a reset always resolves this issue if it does arise for me.

    and I agree... the media player sucks.... Why on Earth aren't the album tracks in track order?.... who decided alphabetical was appealing? lol

    Yup I love my Droid, but the media player drives me nuts!!!! I am an ipod touch user and am so used to it's media player. I use my Droid a ton for music in the car, if I'm not using Pandora. I am hoping with future updates the media player will be greatly improved.

    ^ or at least a media player app to correct this. Either way I'd be content :)

    This worked WONDERFUL. Now if I could just get my album art to stick... Other than that I'm set. I don't know what is wrong with these ID3 tags. They're all 2.3, all have album art... Only some albums show album art. Shows up beautiful in iTunes, MP3Tag... UGH.

    Weird... I have absolutely no problems with ID3. I did everything in iTunes because of my iPod Touch, and they all transferred over flawlessly. I didn't use any software on my computer to transfer the files over. I just copied the content of the iTunes music folder onto Music on the sd card.

    Also my tracks are showing up in order of tracks, not alphabetical. All part of the ID3...
    But if that's not working for you for some reason and you still want them in order, you can rename your tracks to "1. Name", "2. Name"....

    I do dislike the media player's inability to handle gapless playback though...

    My album tracks are not listed in alphabetical order. They are organized by track number.
