    The Windows Phone App on Windows 8 is atrocious. I recently had to reimage my computer back to its factory settings, back when it had Windows 7, and I hoped that the Windows 7 version would be better.

    It was worse.

    I can't upgrade to Windows 8 again because of some funky business it does with my ability to connect to Wi-Fi, but I must ask, is there another program to use other than Windows Phone App? Specifically one that works in albums over artists? Because that's my main issue. If I have an album that features different artists (like Harmony of a Hunter for example), Windows Phone chops it up by artist and separates them into different albums. Back when I used the Zune program, I'd merge them all into one album and it'd transfer to my Zune/Windows Phone perfectly.

    Any way I can replicate that experience?

    You could try Windows Media Player.. I use that for syncing music over the WP app.

    Failing that, change the id3 tag of the album and then use explorer to drag and drop the files.

    Hm, looking at it now and it looks promising. Any way to change the album art?

    What's the id3 tag?

    The id3 tag is what tells the system who wrote, produced and sang/performed a song, it also says what album its from. A problem with a lot of compilation albums is that the artist is there but the album isn't. So they all get split up. There are tons of free apps and programs that can change an entire albums id3 tag as a batch. This means they should show up as a proper album.

    Hope this helps
