    I have had my Windows phone for a few weeks now and I am having an issue when it comes to syncing my music to my phone which I can no longer ignore. I have roughly around 30GB of music, all of which I take a lot of time organizing. About half of that music, is Japanese or Korean.

    Now previously, I had an iPhone, and I had no issues with the characters (Japanese, Korean) showing up correctly on my phone -- it showed as it appeared in iTunes. But, I had plenty of other complaints and I made the switch to the 920 and I love it -- but where I should be seeing Korean and Japanese characters I'm seeing weird little; I have attached screenshots.

    Not all of my foreign music appears like this but some of it does, and call me weird, but I like organization when it comes to my music and I am hoping to find a solution to this. Any help from the Windows veterans on here will be greatly appreciated.

    It seems I am still having the same issue. I deleted all my music from my phone, I downloaded media monkey to make sure my music was tagged correctly, and I am still seeing weird characters appear on my phone, even though it looks fine in Windows Media Player and Media Monkey. Any ideas?

    Not sure if you ever got resolved but is it possible that Windows Phone is not capable of displaying text that doesn't use the Latin alphabet?

    Hi, did you ever get a fix for this? I'm having the same problem with the characters from my korean music too.
