syncing Mobile WMP with Desktop WMP RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I currently have my music library stored in lossless .wma and meticulously tagged using WMP on my XP system. I make full use of both the "AlbumArtist" and "Artist" tags. This is a great way to tag as it allows for compilations by various artists, classical CD's, and guest artists who only play on a select track.

     

    Unfortunately, the Mobile WMP library only allows you to list by album, genre, and artist. This leads to a problem on many albums. Take, for example, the album Deuces Wild by the album artist B.B. King. If you navigate to Library/My Music/Artist - B.B. King is not listed but there is an entry for every single guest artist. I know the mobile version of WMP can read the albumartist tag (shows the info in track properties) so there really should be an album artist choice under Library/My Music along with genre, album, and all music.

     

    I hope that was clear,

    Scott

     

    P.S.  If there is a setting, regedit or other hack that will accomplish this please let me know.
