Music app show tags wrong

Re: Music app show tags wrong

same problem here with MP3 files. A wrong artist name in the past does not get updated even after clear catch and clear data. On PC, the tags are correct. The problem gets worse when you see all songs of that artist are overwritten by the wrong name.

Re: Music app show tags wrong

Finally solved! On your phone, go to Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> All -> Media Storage. Now hit ‘Clear Data’. This should clear all the cached library information on your phone. (I have a hunch that if you re-write id3 tags without changing the file name, the phone probably won’t refresh the library).

Note: Resetting the database will remove ringtones, Android created playlists and notifications.
