Unable to Edit Music on Symbian^3 (Nokia N8)

My former device was a N73ME  (S60v3) and there you could edit Music on the device, i heard even in S60v5 it was possible. But why can't I edit  Music on the N8 and always forced to use Ovi-Player on the PC or Windows Media Player to change musicinformation with deleting the music on the N8 and synchronize it again to the device.

Was this function just forgotten by the developers?


Please implement this with a software update or make it even better (e.g. make it possible to add albumart and search vor trackinfos onle via Gracenote or maybe something else) that would be fine :smileytongue:

Re: Unable to Edit Music on Symbian^3 (Nokia N8)

Almost one year has passed, and I see this problem hasn't been addressed.


I'm mistified that, moving from a 5800 to an N8, I've got less functionality available...


Hope a Nokia person out there has an answer.

Re: Unable to Edit Music on Symbian^3 (Nokia N8)

It is a bit of a downgrade not being able to edit music details on the phone, but the only solution I've found is to make sure it's right before I drag and drop it onto the phone, then the issue becomes somewhat irrellivant ?

If I have helped at all, a click on the White Star is always appreciated :
