Question about RCA TH1101 MP3 Player
I am having a very frustrating problem with my RCA mp3 player. I purchased it intending to use it to listen to audiobooks that I already had in mp3 format on my computer, but no matter what method of file transfer I attempt, the tracks refuse to play in order, which is unacceptable for listening to a book. I've tried setting them up in a playlist in the recommended Yahoo! Jukebox program before transferring, and the files are labeled in such a way that they are alpha-numerically in order automatically by the usual computer file standards. Anyone know how to force this player to play tracks in a specific order? Thanks!

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.

These RCA Pearl players have awful file system organization. Because of their small size, they are fine for listening to audiobooks.. but, since they have no incremental fast forward function, audiobooks have to be split into manageable sections in order to listen to them easily.
I have found the only solution to getting these manageable sections to play in order is to :
1) Use a very short filename. BRJI for Brideshead Revisited read by Jeremy Irons, for example.
2) After splitting the audiobook into equal length tracks (10 to 20 minutes is convenient, and I use Mp3TM) rename the tracks BRJI1 from BRJI - 01, BRJI2 from BRJI - 02, etc. When you reach track 10, name it BRJIA10, then BRJIA!!, etc..
3) If you want to keep all your audiobooks in one area, preface the filenames with Z, for example. ZBRJI = Brideshead Revisited Read by Jeremy Irons, ZBH = Blue Highways, etc..
3)Re-write all the tag information ( I use mp3TagStudio 3.05)
4) I use only drag and drop with Internet Explorer to keep things very simple.

Right click on each track and under details in the # column put the desired number. It's the only thing that worked for me.

Make sure the id tags are id2. id3 makes it wonky.

Hi...I actually have an RCA Pearl 2 GB TH1602 MP3 player---with the same problem. The tracks wouldn't play in order. I tried the solution above: I renamed the tracks 01, 02, etc. This didn't work for me, so I took each of the files that I had just renamed and: right clicked on the file, entered "properties;" Then, I went into "summary" or "details," (depending on which version of Windows you have), and labeled the track number with whatever place I wanted that track to have on the player. I found that my tracks were randomized because the "track number" line was blank in the file properties.
Hope this helps!

I posted the previous solution about adding the files in reverse order. After toying around some more, I think the solution is not based on the order in which you transfer the files, but in the track title. I had been trying to transfer files that were ripped using iTunes, which uses a different naming convention than the RCA Easy Rip software. I re-ripped my CDs using Easy Rip, and set the rip options so that each track title would start with the track number. I then transferred the files to the player using Windows Explorer, and voila! All files in the proper order.

The solution posted here didn't work for me, but here's one that did. Using Windows Exporer, I dragged my files one by one into the player in the REVERSE order I wanted them to play. In other words, I started with the last track first. When I looked inside the album folders on my player, they were in the right order for the first time ever. I have absolutely no idea why this worked, but it did.
