From the manual(link left side  of screen):

3.1.3  Putting music on your player
With the player connected to the computer as an MSC/UMS device (like a USB Drive), music files can be put on the player via any standard file transfer method that you would use to copy files between drives (e.g. Drag-and-Drop). Files may be placed wherever you like on the player, but it is strongly suggested NOT to put them in the /.rockbox folder and instead put them in any other folder, e.g. /, /music or /audio. The default directory structure that is assumed by some parts of Rockbox (album art searching, and missing-tag fallback in some WPSes) uses the parent directory of a song as the Album name, and the parent directory of that folder as the Artist name. WPSes may display information incorrectly if your files are not properly tagged, and you have your music organized in a way different than they assume when attempting to guess the Artist and Album names from your filetree. See section C for the requirements for Album Art to work properly. See section B.1 for a list of supported audio formats
