Question about Creative Labs ZEN SLEEK MP3 Player

1 Answer

Tracks in alphabetical order instead of by track #

Many albums I transfer show up in alphabetical order.  I have checked them all in tag&rename and tried multiple transfers.  This started happening when I got my replacement unit.  Any help would be appreciated.

    If I transfer the files manually they work fine.

I have downloaded soundtrack albums to the player and it mixes up all the tracks. the player is set non-shuffle. I am trying to listen to a particular soundtrack with all the tracks in order and it won't...

Usually this is because the tracks on a soundtrack album are attributed to different artists. Your player is probably ordering them by artist in alphabetical order. You might be able to tell it to order them by track number instead, or you might need to re-write the ID3 tags on the files, in a program like iTunes. It's easy to do. Once in iTunes, highlight the album and right click, go to info, and tell it that all of the songs are written by the same person. I hope this helps you! :)

Mp3 player dmp450n; tracks stored and play alphabetically; how do I make the device play album tracks in original order

Renaming not needed...Copy the album onto the folder which you use to drag and drop music to the player and then drag it again into the music folder which is a sub folder of the folder where you just copied the music to. This means you are copying from an area on the player to another area. This will keep the track listing that you originally have for the album and means no change is needed to mp3 tags.

Mp3 player dmp450n;stores and plays album tracks alphabetically, how do i make them play in original album running order?

Copy the album onto the internal media folder and then drag it again into the music folder. This means you are copying from an area on the player to another area. This will keep the track listing that you originally have for the album and means no change is needed to mp3 tags.

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.

Transfering albums onto Samsung YPK3 PLAYER

Alphabetical order only - edit the id3 tags to change the song name alphabetically - that is the only way to get it in the order you want.

You have to make sure that the ID3 tags have the album name on them. right click song, select properties, and edit the id3 tag. For more instructions, go to www.microsoft.com and search for "edit id3 tags in windows media player"

I want tracks from alphabetical to album order...

Try renaming the tracks on your PC with a two digit track number at the beginning of the title, e.g 01 - Track name.

Re-load the tracks on to your player and use the album list to play them.
