I’ve had a lot of Sansas, like a number of Clips and Clip +, but I recently got myself a Clip Sport. However, I cannot get to grips with the sorting. It’s completely different from my old Sansas. I use the device mostly for audio books in the mp3 format. Sometimes the first file in a folder/book according to Sansa is actually the 128th. I can then scroll up to the first, but the counter in the upper left corner will then claim it’s number 49 of whatever.
More serious is that some books only contains 8 or 18 files. When i switch to folder view, I can see all the files. Why isn’t all files showing in the Audio Books section? I’ve checked id3v1 and id3v2 tags to see if there is any difference between the mp3 files that show and those that doesn’t, but there’s no difference.
I’ve tried to remove the id3v2 and only use id3v1, but this doesn’t change the devices behaviour. Of course, I can listen to the files in the Folder view, but I would prefer the Audio Books view. It’s more easy to read due to the text/background contrast. (Folder view: white text on light blue background, who came up with that?!)
So basically my question is this:
How is the sorting managed in the Audio books view? Apparently not file name. Is it id3v1 or id3v2? Track number, title? Both?
I’m grateful for any information on this subject.
