    [SOLVED] Amarok Problem

    i just installed Amarok and it scanned for all my music and then built a collection for me.
    well, it put some songs in the "unknown artist" section when they shouldn't be there. how do i move them from there to where they belong?

    Re: Amarok Problem

    If there are songs and albums in the 'Unknown Artist' part of the collection, usually that means you need to edit those song tags to the accourate song artist, album, etc...

    I don't know what else to tell you because the information given wasn't really detailed. When looking at my Amarok application, the 'Unknown Artist' section of mine actually hold all the artists that haven't had their tags edited yet. Once I edit them, they should move out of 'Unknown Artists'.

    If it doesn't move, go to Tools >> Rescan or Update Collection and see if that helps (after you edit the song tags).
