Renaming audio tracks

I have been ripping audio books to use on my Sansa player. After ripping the cda tracks the names just become numbers. Each cd ends up with the same numbers (e.g. 1 thru 24). Becomes very messy when trying to listen to the book sequentially. I have tried 'renaming' after selecting all. Having to rename each track one after the other seems particularly tedious.

To download music to computer


Hi acdcrockwg,

In order to download music onto your computer (which you will need to do before transferring music from your computer to your player), you can purchase music online by individual track or album downloads (there are a number of online music services) or you can purchase a music subscription (such as Rhapsody) which allows you to play music as long as your subscription continues.

Another method of downloading music to your computer is by ripping CD's. For instructions on how to download and also transfer music to your player, visit www.philips.com/support and enter your specific model number in the search engine to arrive at the product page (which includes FAQ's, video tutorials, manuals, etc.). Model numbers typically begin with "SA."

Hope this helps. Let me know by rating this solution. Thanks!

RIPPING CD INSTRUCTIONS:

When a CD is ripped, the audio files such as voice recording, music and audio book are copied into the memory of the computer.

Follow the steps below to rip a CD:
  1. Insert the CD into the CD drive of the computer.
  2. Launch Songbird in the computer.
  3. Once the CD is detected by the software, the audio files in the CD will be shown.
  4. Click the "Rip CD" on the right hand side and the ripping process will begin.

If the audio file is successfully ripped, there will be a tick sign on the beginning of the row showing the name.

Note:
Make sure you are authorized to rip the CD. Unauthorized duplication of any recordings whether downloaded from the Internet or made from audio CDs is a violation of copyright laws and international treaties.

How do I convert an audiobook on CD to a MP3 file using Windows Vista?


The same way you convert music CDs to MP3. Put the disc into the drive and use Windows Media Player to rip tracks from the disc.

Be careful when doing this, though, to make sure each disc has a distinct name. I personally put the disc number at the beginning instead of the end. If you have "A Really, Really Long Book Title Disc 14", you have to wait for the Sansa to scroll to the end before you see the disc number. "14A Really, Really Long Book Title" puts the disc number at the front where it's immediately visible.

How to download from CD


There are many ways to do this. If you are using a windows product and load a cd in media player there is a rip cd function that allows you to convert the .cda tracks on a compact disc to a file that will work on your Sansa. Media player defaults to a Wma but can be set to other formats. The highest bit rate available for an mp3 is 320 Kbps. I use this when creating an mp3. Once the rip is complete you can plug in your sansa and media player will detect it and you sync to the device. You can also go to your music folder and manually copy and paste or drag and drop to the player just like your were accessing a flash drive.

Fast forwarding for listening to books


I use a Creative Zen V Plus, but have a similar problem.

First, an explanation: the issue is probably with the timecode in the audio track. This can happen when the audio file is created on a computer. The audiobook was likely "ripped" to a file from the original audiobook CD, and your player may not like the format the file is in. The best solution in this case is to recreate the audio files yourself. First remove all of the files from your Sansa for that particular book. Then use CD-burning software on your computer to create an audio CD (not a data CD!) from the files you got from the library. Finally, use the software that came with your Sansa to transfer the audio CD back to your Sansa. This way you know you are getting a correct format on your player.

If you have an additional issue (like me) where the tracks are too long and go back to the beginning every time you turn your player off, you may have to use an audio editor such as Audacity to chop the long tracks up into smaller tracks, but this is quite time consuming. It is best to acquire audiobooks in smaller tracks in the first place. This is the problem I have been faced with while using Audible.com to listen to audiobooks.

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.

Sansa audio book scramble


The Sansa orders tracks alphabetically. It goes by the track name encoded internally, not by filename. You can use Media Player or some other program to rename the track, then transfer them to the Sansa.
