Hey guys, I’m jvktr and I’m going to teach you in this thread very simple topics about how to organize your folders to have a decent player that supports more than 2000 songs.
What you need to know first is you can’t use more than 2000 songs in the Card context menu since the last firmware update. So we need to adjust the folders in our card to use the Folder menu in order to access a larger number of songs.
1) Copy the songs you want to your Clip Sport.
I don’t think I have to explain this, if you have any doubt just post here.
2) Rename folders to what kind of organization you want to use.
If you want to sort by genre, artist, album, etc. you need to create a directory that leads properly to it. It’s very basic. If you’ve already done this, skip to step two.
You can sort your folders by artist inside the x:/Music like this: _x:/Music/Artist One, x:/Music/Artist Two, _and so on.
Or you could sort by genre, like this: x:/Music/Death Metal/Artist or Album, x:/Music/New Wave/Artist or Album .
The same would apply to albums: x:/Music/Album One, x:/Music/Album Two.
If you want to have both, you could make a /Artists/ folder, a /Genres/ folder and a /Albums/ folder, for example. You would have to have two copies of each song though, unless someone finds a way to create shortcuts, which I think probably won’t happen (if you find out, share with us!).
Yes, this _is _a lot of work, but at least you’ll manage to keep your large music library inside your Clip Sport without much trouble.
3) Download FatSorter.
FatSorter is a program that will help us sort our folders alphabetically (because the FAT system kind of randomize the arrange). I haven’t had problems with the software, and it is virus free. If you find an alternative software you prefer, the process is the same.
4) Use FatSorter to sort your files.
Now you’ll use the software you just downloaded. The process is really simple. First you need to open the program by executing the .exe file that was installed to your computer. The interface will now show up. Click the _Browse… _button and choose the location of your x:/Music folder. Hit the _Sort _button, and the program will take a few seconds or minutes to complete the arrangement.
Your Clip Sport music folders are now properly arranged and organized. :smileyvery-happy:
