No, but this is the Clip+ board. You have an Express. You should post your question in the

 

All Other MP3 Players board

The Clip+ doesn't support album artist. I suggest that you get rid of the album artist tags. also don't edit tags on the player. Edit the tags on the copy on your pc, delete the files on the player, then copy them to the player again. I had problems when I tried editing tags directly on the player.

Re: Clip+ 4GB - 16GB microSDHC - Audiobook Question

I have the same problem with audiobooks and also with my music. When it first happened, I thought I was doing something wrong, so I reformatted the Clip+ and started again. Strangely, reformatting didn't erase all the data on the Clip+. Now my memory is getting full and only about one quarter of the files actually show up on the clip. When I'm plugged into the computer, I see an entirely different set of files. For instance, I deleted one folder while plugged into the computer, but it still shows up on the player when I disconnect from the computer. This little player, while full of great features, is a total pain in the ass to use. Perhaps Sandisk should hire some useability experts to try to make the experience a little more user friendly. At this point, I'm ready to throw the thing out and buy an iPod!

Ted, format the player using the the player's menu(settings, system settings, format). Set the USB mode on the player to MSC(settings, system settings, USB mode) if you don't use protected files, or to MTP if you do use protected files. Copy your files to the player. The problems you are having is due to the player being in autodetect mode. You need to choose either MSC or MTP for the USB mode and stick with it.

And expanding a bit, when the player is connected under USB MSC mode, the computer only shows the files that were transferred under MSC mode.  Same as to MTP mode,  And in the USB Auto setting, the player tries to use MTP mode but will fall back to MSC mode, if MTP mode can't work--hence, a possible mess in what the computer later can see.

I actually don't have it in Autodetect mode, and I did format it using the Settings tab. That's why it's confusing to me.

If at first you don't succeed . . . . (I am convinced that electronics deliberately play tricks on us human beings and taunt us.)
