Music mp3 tagging

Post by Stu-k »

So I’ve just got a zumo and whacked in an sd card on a folder named mp3 but unit doesn’t recognise song tags. I’ve tried retagging but still unit says unknown artist,album etc. What am I missing??

So I finally figured it out, for anyone else going thorough same thing.
Zumo doesn't recognise later versions of id3, 2.4 needs to be downgrade to 2.3

I have the exact same issue, but I have no idea what ID3 is that you mention? Could you explain so I can try and fix my issue.
Okay I searched for ID3 on the web and now understand it a bit better, but still have no idea how to change the version, my MP3 files where created by iTunes and I don't see a way to get iTunes to use an older version of ID3 (Maybe installing an older version of iTunes might work, but I don't want to do that). Any other way to get to version 2.3 of ID3? Or is Garmin going to update their music player to recognize the later ID3 format?

Thanks Gary
