Re: organizing songs

You cant. every mp3 player has a sorter that sorts the songs in alphabetical order. you can not change the order of the songs.

I want songs to play in the order I put them in NOT alphabetical

Make you a play list on your computer, the songs must be in the order that you want them to play. Plug your mp3 player into your computer. Go to start select my computer, a window should open with a list of contents and on the left the list of other start file will be visible. on the main page scroll down till you see your mp3 player witch is plugged into the usb select it. Once it has opened the device, click on start once again, this time you want to select music if that is where you saved your play list to. Drag the file that contains your play list on to the icon that you want it on your device. Be sure to title the file so you can identify it. If it works your play list will come up as you want it. I hope it works for you. good luck

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.

Hi i just got an mp3 modelm4282-r when i ripped songs from my computer to the device it placed them in various orders instead of by the album sequence in which they were ripped. the computer showed the...

You didn't do anything wrong - some mp3 players only organize tracks alphabetically.I don't know if that player lists a manufacturer other than Nokia, but it looks like you got a cheap custom-build or clone. All you can do is make sure that all of the information is correct in the ID3 tags, use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs/playlists to the player, and double-check the manual to see if they have Setting to change the order in which tracks are played.

A workaround would be to alpabetically change the names of the songs so that they play in the order you want, but on some mp3 players you cannot change that alphabetical order problem.

Will not play songs in ALBUM order

yes, this player is naturally alphabetical, but you can re-edit the track #'s in the id3 tag, and then retransfer the song to the goGear - should work

Make this thing play the songs in the order they are on the CD

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.
