How to get the songs on my MP3 player to play in order they are named?

I am going on a long road trip - just brought this MP3 player as I have no CD player in my car. I have a talking book on there to break up the boredom of just music. However now that I have added the files to the MP3 (after numerous attempts at changing the file names) it doesn't play the chapters in order at all.
Please please help me if you can as I don't have any other options. My Partner is an IT tech and he's stumped too!

How do I get the Coby MPC890 to play songs


You push and hold the > key on the mp3 player, then press it again. I just got mine so I'm sure how you go from song to song, but the markings on it are similar to a CD or DVD player.

This is from Memorex FAQs:
Some programs put the track number as the first 2 characters of the song title (file name) this will cause the player to put the songs in the same order as the CD (or album for those of us old folks). If you drag files onto the MP3 players you can arrange them in any order you wish in the file view of your windows computer. When you go through the songs on the MP3 player, they will be in alphabetic order based on the file name (song title usually). You can't change the player's settings to play in anything but alphabetical order. There is a work around: People can force the play list order by naming the songs with a numeric prefix (i.e. 01, 02 etc) so the alphabetic listing in the player will put them in the order you prefer.

Playlist Trouble


Delete the track number from the ID3 tag to get around this problem. Make sure the GoGear is not set to shuffle - make sure the shuffle is OFF.

Unknown Format


It is not the MP3 player but the DRM copy protection on the cd. DO NOT BUY CDs WITH DRM PROTECTION. There are ways around the DRM - rip the cd into another format with software designed for this purpose.

you can do one of two things. rename the songs with starting with 1, 2, 3, etc. Or make playlists and use them. The playlists play in the order the song is added to it.

Song Names show up incorrectly on ILO Mp3 player. Wrong format?


The funny~.mp3 names are usually because the title field is not filled in in the mp3 property tags, so it uses the DOS version of the filename for the title. Under windows, right click the song and select properties->summary->advanced, and make sure that the title field under "description" has what you want in it. I don't think even the makers of Ilo know how it organizes the files.

It never puts them in order, trust me. But I think if tyou have a ~,- or something fancy before the title it ends up first.
