I had the Clip+ in Auto USB mode, and was getting a numeric string in front of the name of some of the Artists and/or Album titles. Based on suggestions from the forums, I moved all of the music off of the Clip+, changed to MSC USB mode, formatted the Clip+ and then copied the music back via Windows Explorer.
All seemed good, but I went to play my Meat Loaf (Bat I, II and III) via the folders on the Clip+, and only Bat I and II showed up, however, on via Windows Explorer, Bat I was displayed.
When I do “Play All” within the Meat Loaf folder, the songs from Bat I are there, but there was no Bat I folder. I then deleted the Bat II and Bat III albums from the clip, and re-copied them from my computer. I have the same result. Windows Explorer sees the Bat I folder, when doing Play All, the songs from Bat I are played/displayed, but the Bat I folder does not show up in the Meat Loaf folder on the Clip+.
I installed the firmware update just in case, and still have the same issue.
Anyone have any ideas if I am doing something wrong, or if maybe this is an issue with the Clip+?
A thought that just came to me… does the Clip+ actually use the folder hierarchy when viewing folders, or does it use MP3 tags? If so, if the MP3 tag artist were MeatLoaf rather than Meat Loaf, would the Clip+ not show it in the Meat Loaf folder (it does not show a MeatLoaf folder, and I have not checked the tags)?
By the way, the songs are stored in WMA format in case that matters.
