I just got my PS3 last week and just found out what many of you probably already know -- the box can't properly read MP3 ID3 tags. I eagerly put my large MP3 collection on an external HD and first found out it will only read one directory deep on the drive. My MP3s, like just about everyone else, are arranged artist/album/tracks. Ok, I can deal with that. Then I noticed that the box sorts tracks alphabetically by name and not by the track # contained in the tag. Ok, I could do a batch retagging to put track numbers in the song title -- nope , I aint doing it. I'll keep using my PC and Winamp.
For a device that it is in so many ways advanced and remarkable, I can't count the number of forehead slappers like the above I've encountered so far.
I will say, however, that the photo features are slick and I will probably use it often to view my pics.
If I'm missing something regarding the PS3s inability to read ID3 tags properly, someone please give me guidance.
