Nintendo 3DS Sound problem

I have put 500+ songs inside my SD card. Only a mere near 100 showed up to play. I mainly listen to a lot of japanese songs so is the reason that the 3DS i own cannot recognize any songs that have japanese characters on it? Mainly the artist, album name, etc?

Unfortunately, the 3DS/DSi Sound can only recognize up to the first 100 files per folder. You can put 100 songs in five folders and they'll pop up, but if you have more than 100, they'll only recognize the first batch.
At least this time around, Nintendo actually noticed this and said it in the 3DS instruction booklet, instead of having people find out on their own. X(

Also, they have to be in .mp3 format (I've tried .m4a, but it didn't pop up), regardless of what country or origin they came from (I also have some japanese tracks as well, and they pop up just fine).

M4A should work, as should MP4, AAC and 3GP.
If they don't work, go to iTunes, then select the songs that didn't work, and then right click them, and choose "Convert to AAC" -- it'll recreate a copied M4A file, however, this one should work. At least it does with me.
