    Why is this Album saying "Unknown Album" and "Unknown Artist" on my phone???

    What have I got to do to make it show "Liza Minnelli" as the Artist?? And "The Jazz Jam Sessions" as the "Album" ??

    This is something that I uploaded from YouTube. Its not a commercial album. It is just something I want on my phone that is very rare, and is a "home-made" album.

    Please give me STEP BY STEP instructions, as Groove Music is THE WORST app I've ever known..

    Thanks Guys

    Just finished fixing my groove music and eliminated everything unknown in my files

    Go to the album touch and hold and go to edit. There u can change the album/song/artist name there and any other album details

    Oh! So I have I have finally figured it out after much faffing around... So in order for GROOVE MUSIC to recognize it as an "Album" on your phone, (and not show up as "Unknown Artist" and "Unknown Album" on your phone) you have to add a "Genre" in iTunes before you transfer it.. (in this case I gave my Liza Minnelli album the "Genre" of "Easy Listening"...

    After I did that -- and then dragged the MP3's into my "Music" Folder onto my Micro SD card on my phone -- it appeared on my phone without the "Unknown Album" - "Unknown Artist" showing up as "Liza Minnelli" -- "Liza - The Jam Sessions" and is in alphabetical order. Problem solved.

    Oh Sedp23... Thanks SO much....

    I've now gotten around to your method of editing the "Unknown Albums" on my phone -- and its working a treat!

    Thanks so much

    (One tip that I've noticed - for other people stuck in the same boat as me... Is to follow the instructions as per above that Sedp23 has given, but wait at least 15 seconds after pressing enter before you do anything, because it takes a while for the newly entered information to "accept"... I expect its juggling the positions of the albums about...

    also if u have a pc i also use mp3 tag there may be a occasional mp3 or 2 that gets stuck and wont change or if u want to do things in bulk that application works fine as well. but its only on pc

    but between the 2 apps you should be able to get rid of all your unknown album and unknown artists listings in groove music

    Thanks very much for this. I only just started using Groove and I did not even know it had this ability. Microsoft hid the option behind an ellipsis so it is not immediately obvious it is there. To answer the OP, you could download the song from YouTube as an MP3 using a converter, open it in MP3Tag (a great free MP3 tag editing suite for PC) and then copy that newly edited MP3 file to your Groove music folder and Groove will find it and all the tag details just fine.
