    front ends and .m4a

    Just wondering do any front ends here support ID3 tags for .m4a files?
    What I mean by this is do the front ends allow u to browse your music library of .m4a files by:
    Genre - Artist - album - song

    All I have been able to find is

    Artist - song
    or
    Genre - artist - song.....(no ALBUM)

    each artists seperate albums are put into 1 folder of all their songs...the albums aren't seperate.

    can anyone help?

    mobo $130 ; 150wOpus-$200 ; 256mb pc2700 -$10 ; 120gb HDD 7200-$70 ; Lilliput TS 7"-$265 ; USB LAN-Free AR ; Rikaline 6010 GPS-$34 ; ShuttleXpress-$37
    Total = $746....Carputer = Priceless

    Also, in Frodo, can't you create a tag file for songs. For example, if the song is song.mp4
    Can't you create a tag file using notebook and name it song.mp4.txt or something like that? I seem to remember reading that somewhere in Frodo's forum. I don't know the format that the txt file has to be in (sorry)

    if u install a .m4a codec I find that in frodoplayer they are sorted in a .m4a genre. Haven't tried a tag file b4.
