As an aside, you might try some automated tagging tools. I once wrote
a small perl script that guessed the correct tags from the filename,
if there was no tag before (of course, I have no idea where that is

Also, I've heard some nice stuff about MusicBrainz
(, which can identify songs by
fingerprinting and checking their database for matches. I think they
have an automated tagger there somewhere as well.

But really, any player crappy enough to require jumping through such
hoops should be avoided. Maybe you could contact creative about
getting some tech info for the rockbox people to port? Or, of course,
you could just get a refund.
