Our Random MP3 player can display artist and song information about the mp3 file that it is playing. It does this by reading the ID3 tags from the file. ID3 tags are data fields that are added to an MP3 file. ID3 tags contain information about the file, such as the name of a song, album, and artist.

Sometimes there are difficulties with this, usually due to the fact that there are a variety of formats for these tags. The player supports version 1.0, 1.1, 2.3, and 2.4 tags; version 2.2 tags are not supported.

If your player is having problems displaying the information then it may be because the ID3 tags for your mp3s are the wrong version for it. It is in fact quite easy to change the version if you have iTunes. To convert the tags, first open iTunes, then find the mp3 track file. Right-click on the track, and select 'Convert ID3 tags', you will then be prompted to select the tag version.
