Re: track order is reversed
Turn off shuffle
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.
Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced. Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website. Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything. Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp If these fail, then: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version). You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer. -Tha Mp3 Doctor

Generally audio editing applications can add new tracks by either dragging and dropping the music file directly on top of the program, or going to File -> Import.
Make sure that Magix Audio Studio is capable of importing the type of file you're looking to import (it will give a warning message if it cannot).
I use a Creative Zen V Plus, but have a similar problem.
First, an explanation: the issue is probably with the timecode in the audio track. This can happen when the audio file is created on a computer. The audiobook was likely "ripped" to a file from the original audiobook CD, and your player may not like the format the file is in. The best solution in this case is to recreate the audio files yourself. First remove all of the files from your Sansa for that particular book. Then use CD-burning software on your computer to create an audio CD (not a data CD!) from the files you got from the library. Finally, use the software that came with your Sansa to transfer the audio CD back to your Sansa. This way you know you are getting a correct format on your player.
If you have an additional issue (like me) where the tracks are too long and go back to the beginning every time you turn your player off, you may have to use an audio editor such as Audacity to chop the long tracks up into smaller tracks, but this is quite time consuming. It is best to acquire audiobooks in smaller tracks in the first place. This is the problem I have been faced with while using Audible.com to listen to audiobooks.
You can put music on it by doing the following (assuming vista/XP environment):
Connect it to your PC using the provided USB cable. Open windows explorer and navigate to your Sansa Clip. Click through "sansa clip", "internal memory" to the "music" directory. Drag and drop MP3/wav files to this directory. Feel free to create subdirectories. Your music will be accessible after doing this. Be aware that the clip ignores your directories. It will look for artist, album, and title tags to categorize your tracks. You may have to look for your tracks in the "unknown" album directory when playing if your tracks don't have these (ID3?) tags.
The Sansa orders tracks alphabetically. It goes by the track name encoded internally, not by filename. You can use Media Player or some other program to rename the track, then transfer them to the Sansa.
No You Don't Have To Converter The Tracks. It Depends On How You Put The Tracks On Your Sansa, Do You Drag And Drop Or Do You Sync With Copy To Device In Windows Media Player 9, Or Sync In Windows Media Player
Here's how I resolved the Play-Order Problem with my TH1101A using Windows Exporer: 1. I put every file (MP3 and WMA) in one folder on my computer. 2. I renamed the files 001.mp3, 002.mp3, etc in the order I want them to play. 3. On the FOLDER, Right click - Properties - Customize Tab 4. In dropdown, change to "Documents (for any file type), click Apply 5. General Tab, "Advanced..." button - UNcheck "For fast searching, allow Indexing..." 6. then click "OK" "Apply" "OK" to exit folder properties. 7. In explorer, all the files in the right pane should be sorted by name in proper order. 8. Copy the files to the Pearl. This worked for me, but of course, I can't guarantee anything.
All files need to have filenames and titles ("title" field in the summary under file properties on your PC). Otherwise the player will list it as "unknown" and it will NOT play. You have to drag it out of the player, rename, and then drag it back, if you're in MTP mode (which you SHOULD be!).
Multiple copies of the same track sounds like you have some tracks listed under different artist names--you gotta keep a clean library!! Go back and check all the summary attributes for your mp3 files...
Of course, you're using WMA files so who the heck knows. I would be sticking with mp3 format, if you want my opinion.......
