I recently bought a Sony NWZ-S639 and have been building my digital music collection since. I haven't transferred much music to the player but of those that I have the year isn't showing on the player and I don't know why. It means I can't take advantage of the Intelligent shuffle feature. I have been ripping the CD's to flac using EAC. Then I have picked up all the album art and added it to the files using mp3Tag. I've checked the tags in mp3Tag and they look fine, they also look fine in Foobar. So I then used dbpoweramp (trial version of the reference program) and used the batch converter to create the mp3's from the flac files. So does anyone know what might have gone wrong in transferring these files to the player?
