Russian language support

Hi there,
A few weeks ago I posted a thread asking about Russian language support for filenames and the filesystem in general, and found that I needed to have a unicode filesystem or one in Russian charset. So now i have a unicode filesystem, with Russian language support installed all around.
I can now view Russian filenames fine, and work in Russian like I need to.
The problem I have run in to however is that when it comes to mp3's, when I try to enter in Russian id3 information it simply gets converted to a bunch of junk looking like 0H8=0;L=> and if not that, then Англо-русский словарь, yet when the id3 information is previously entered by something else, not on my computer, such as a mac, it shows up okay (sometimes).. So, what do I need to do to be able to just enter the information and have it not converted to a bunch of junk?? It seems like such a simple thing to do, yet obviously isn't so simple....

Well I would love to ask the people at but I don't really speak Russian enough to be able to compose a question, let alone begin to understand responces...
Oh well..

I have this problem, too... I believe that it may be a problem because the MP3 software (to display playlists, anyway) can display only one form of Russian at a time. That is, if you have it set to show CP1251 (or whatever it's called), it won't show KOI8R.

I thought that UTF-8 should get rid of this, but I think it's just a problem in the software itself.

If anybody has any thoughts, let me know!
