Original folder track info doesn't match library track info

    I have added my music folder to the library and all the track information is
    correct in the library. However when I go to the my music folder each album
    folder displays the album's artwork but it says unknown album and all the
    tracks list as track 1, track 2 etc and not their track names like they do in
    the album. Any ideas on how to fix this? thanks.

  2. It ought to update them eventually. Assuming media player 10, if you
    go to the menu and do Tools -> Options -> Library

    Look at "Rename music files using rip settings" and "Rearrange music
    in rip music folder" : what are they set to (on or off ?)

    I belive 'on' would be correct for what you want to do.

    I'd then try to do Tools -> Process media information now : That ought
    to apply the updates to the file names - let us know if not.

    Cheers - Neil
