    What format are the songs in?
    And have you used anything to write the id3 tag?

    I'm not sure on this...
    But it might be that they are wma format... If you convert them to mp3... You shouldn't have a problem... That's all I deal with and have never had a problem

    alright...
    well... try this before you start converting over... google
    wma id3tag
    and see if editing the id3 tag helps...

    post script i'm trying to look a bit further into this one... trying to see about compatibility issues because of the wma is a windows format..
    but here's maybe a few other formats to try to help prevent loss of audio quality that comes with the compression...

    that's good...
    something else you can do to help the quality issue... is get an equalizer on your phone... and on the deck in my car... it actually has a setting to help restore quality to mp3's...

    320kbps for music is perfect. Just listen to a 196 then 320. Huge difference.
