Audiobook tracks out of order

How do I get my Pearl 1101A to play the tracks of my book in order? When I download a book, it stores the tracks in some random order. How do I get the books to play on the "audiobooks" setting.

Turn shuffle off - p.16 of your manual - to get songs to play in sequential rather than random order.

For Audiobooks - p. 13 of manual:
Press M twice to enter Home menu. To play
music files, highlight “Music”(or "Audiobooks"
to play audible files) by pressing or .
Then press to advance.

Whats an audiobook


An audiobook is a book that has been read by an actor or actress (or more than one) and recorded. In the old days they were on tape. Now they're on CDs or online. Either way, you can treat them like any music album. Well, almost. Virtually every audiobook is more than one disc, and you certainly want to listen to the tracks in order, without any shuffling.

I use my Sansa almost exclusively for audiobooks, putting complete series on microSD cards and swapping them out as needed.

Can't get the playerto play the chapters in order


You have to delete the affected Audiobooks off the player, then go into Windows Media Player, right-click one chapter at a time, select "Advanced Tag Editor" and manually assign a track number to each chapter -in order.
Then you can reload the audiobook onto the GoGear.

I have a Philips GOgear SA5285 and I can load the audible audiobooks and they go to the audiobook file but when I load my library books from Netlibrary.com they load as songs and do not have book marks, so...


If you are a newbie, and you primarily want the mp3 player for audiobooks, then go ahead and take this player back to the store - I'll tell you why:
The deal between Audible and Philips fell through before the latest series of GoGear's was released. Therefore, even though the player has an Audible folder, it will not properly play Audible audiobook files. Sad, but true.

Your post reminds me that I need to write a Consumer Watch article on mp3 players that claim to play audiobooks - 90% of them will not easily allow you to play audiobooks - you will have to jump through hoops.

If you still want to try, here is what you want to do:
1. Delete any audiobooks off the GoGear, but make sure that you have a copy of the audibooks on your computer itself.
2. Open Windows Media Player. Find your audiobook files in your library. If they don't show up, then you will have to move your mouse over the Library tab - a small black arrow should appear underneath the word "Library" - click the black arrow and select "Add to Library". Click "Add" and find the folder in which your Audible files are stored. It may take several minutes, but Windows Media Player will add these files to Windows Media Player.
3. Right-click an Audiobook file starting with Chapter 1 of whatever book, and select "Advanced Tag Editor". One-by-one, manually assign an a track number to each audiobook chapter - Track 1 for Chapter 1, Track 2 for Chpater 2, etc.
4. Now, re-add the audiobook files to your GoGear.
5. You might additionally have to go into the Settings menu of your GoGear, and turn Shuffle mode off - your user's manual can show you how to do this.

Sound like a lot of work? You betcherbottom dollar it's a lot of work. This particular mp3 player is not the best for audiobooks.

Recording Audio-books


The GoGear says it is compatible with Audiobooks, but only in the loosest sort of way. It has no way of natively playing them in order or keeping your place, etc. Even the GoGear's that have an Audible folder won't work well, b/c the deal between Audible and Philips fell through prior to release - LOL. Your best bet would be to open Windows Media Player, right click each audiobook track, select "Advanced Tag Editor," and manually re-enter the track number for each chapter in the order that you want them to play. Then delete the current audiobook files off the Philips, and then reload the ones that you have just edited. Good luck!

Tracks played in wrong order



The Sony NWZ-S616F (4 GB) sometimes plays the musical tracks out of sequence. To check if the tracks are being played correctly, press the down arrow key ↓ at any time until the name of the book or music is selected. Then press the ► button and the tracks will show up. If they are in wrong order, select track 1 and press ►.

Loaded an audio book it used space but can't find it to use it


If you have an Insignia player or similar, you will have to use Audible.com to buy and download your books.
There is a way to take an Audio CD book and download it to your player, but first you must change the name of each track and convert it , or else the book will not play in the correct order. It is too much trouble I think.
It sounds like your problem is that it is either not in the correct format, or it has been downloaded to the wrong folder. Try moving it from the audiobook folder to the music folder.

Audiobook to ipod


That is the problem. iTunes will only allow you to put audiobooks in that section if they were bought from the iTunes store. It's very annoying, but i suggest just making a playlist to hold all the files. iTunes doesn't let you set the type as "Audiobook" for files.

RCA TH1100A track order problems


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.
