The order is not random it just appears that way..
The order they are copied seems to be the order they are played.
It looks at the ID tags no the file names.
The way I load my songs on are using Media Monkey or Windows Media Player 11.. I create a playlist then Sync it to the Sansa.

How do I turn the shuffle off?? I go to settings, choose music options, choose shuffle and highlight "on" and nothing I hit makes it change to "off". Help!!


For the Sansa Fuze, the selection Shuffle Mode is correct, just like you told:
In Main Menu > Music > Submenu > Music Options > Shuffle Mode:
1. Select Shuffle.
2. Use thumbwheel to choose Shuffle on or Shuffle off.
(to play songs in random order, set Shuffle to ON).
3. Press Select to change the Shuffle mode.

See page 9 (=page 6) of the manual in pdf format for the Sansa Fuze:
Thumbwheel: 5
Select button: 9

When I download music and want to save to Sansa Clip, it saves in "shuffle" mode. The MP3 files are not in the order I want. I can't seem to make it stop doing that.

Sansa Clip user manual:

When using Windows Media Player while synchronizing there is an extra option "Shuffle what syncs".
Page 14 of the pdf file [= page 12].

Seeing Sansa Clip in WMP on the left side:
1. Right click on the player
2. Select "Set Up Sync..."
3. Deselect the box "Shuffle what syncs..."

Won't play book chapters in order

Maybe it is simply that the device is set on shuffle play. That way it will play mixed up. You can however create a folder with your LB series name and place the files in there.

Best luck, let me know if you got through.

Shuffle seems to play same songs

The shuffle feature shuffles songs randomly - no way to change the order.

On the Sansa Clip, you have to make the changes to the song order in Windows Media Player first, before you transfer the playlist to the Sansa, using the advanced tag editor function; change the track number. If you have already transferred the song(s) over to the Sansa, you must delete the songs on the Sansa first, or else it will not accept the playlist transfer with the new track order. You can always go back and change the track numbers that are stored in your WMP library after you have transferred the playlist to the Sansa.
