Music app - "Other" genre issue



I purchased the XZ1 yesterday and I'm getting around to adding my music files. Everything's been mapped correctly from my SD card for the most part, but I have 100+ songs where the genre is Other. My laptop, which the SD card data is populated from, has the correct genres. My old Windows Phone was able to read the genres correctly too. I tried deleting the files and re-adding them to the SD card, but the Other genre came back.


I can update the songs' information inside the app, but 100+ edits will be tedious. Is there a way to update the genre of an album? If I try to edit an album's info, the options are album art, name, year, but not genre. Is it possible for the genres to be mapped over correctly?
