    I upgraded to Gingerbread a few days ago (LG Optimus Black) and now all songs (except one) are displayed under unknown artist and most songs are now named "# name of song". All other tags including album art, are intact. I donwnloaded a tag editor form the market, but all songs showed the correct info in all fields, so I have no idea how to fix it, however when I turned on my phone today, a few songs were now displaying the artist tag correctly

    Has anyone ran into the same problem or have any idea on how to fix it?

    Use Mp3tag and check if all your songs have the same ID3 tag version. You might have to convert all of them to the same version as the only one that shows the correct information.

    You're not the only one with this issue it seems :P
    You could try using a alternative mmusic player like Poweramp which doesn't have this issue.

    If worst comes to worst, you can manually update your mp3 tags using "iTag" on the Android market: It allows you to manually change your mp3 tags, and is universally recognized across Android music players in my experience.
