Annoying Resorting of files

I like to split audio books into 10 min. chapters b 4 I put them on my player...they are in numercal order but ilo..who knows why..insists on sorting them in a most unusual way, by the title get my files to play in correct order I have to go back to each file, and then rt. click it, go into the properties , then click advanced and then rename the title...this is the only way I have found to beat this idiotic auto-sort..and it is very time consuming...if ANYONE can tell of an easier way I'd like LOVE them

Not fixable - edit the id3 tags in a way that the alphabetical ordering will play in the order that you want them

How do I add audiobooks from windows media player to coby 300. Coby manager says it on there but coby player tells me no files.

Most audio books are Protected WMA files which this unit does not accept, you would have to convert your audio books to MP3 format for them to play properly on your MP300. Honestly, this unit isnt good for audio books as audio books break up into chapters, this unit has no sort order so your chapters would be out of order.

Want to download audio book on CD to my MP3 player

I had this jumbled up problem as it wasn't splitting up the tracks ie I had 6 track ones lined up together which put the chapters out of sync.
The trick is to load each CD individually and immediately 'rename' each ie name of book, genre, CD1, CD2 etc.
Then you can drag and drop into the MP3 player and they will be in the correct order.
Worked for me anyway.

This player will only recognize Audible audiobook files

There is not a fix for the pause/resume issue - it is a major problem for just about every mp3 player that claims audiobook compatibility

Play shuffling when shuffle is off

Hi, that player plays the files in the order they are copied in windows, to avoid random playing, copy the files one by one.

Loading audio books

You will have to edit the track number in Windows Media Player by right clicking the chapter, and going to Advanced Tag Editor. Then, erase the file off the Sansa player. Then reload the mp3 with the correct order/edited tags back onto the player. Sorry - as far as I know you cannot make these edits while the songs are still loaded onto the player.

Order File for Audio Book

Can you rename the files? If so, try renaming the single digit chapters to have two digits - for example 1 becomes 01, 2 becomes 02, etc.

Keeping chapters in order

I fixed this problem by renaming the chapters from 1 to 01 etc. I found the mp3 player would store them in logical order i.e. 1 followed by 10 which was not what I wanted, by renaming the first 9 chapters 01 to 09 this resolved the problem. N.B. I tried to track down Reorganize on the web but gave up as I could only find a German site and I cannot speak German.
