I’ve read about the problems the Clip has in getting the correct play order, for example here, but I can’t seem to get it to work. The audiobook mp3s are tagged with ID3v1.1 and ID3v2.3. I’ve tried using Mp3tag to set the ID3v2.3 to ISO-8859-1. All files have the same Album name, the track # field is set to XXX/YYY (ex: 001/145) for ID3v2.3 and 1, 2, 3…145 for ID3v1.1. The Title tags are set to “Track 001”, “Track 002”…
I can’t figure out why the files do not play in order… Anyone has any ideas? (except for using playlist, because I do NOT want to be forced into using that)
Does anyone have any clue about when that new firmware version (that is supposed to fix these problems) is coming? Someone wrote, a few weeks ago, that it would probably be out in a few weeks…
P.S. If Sandisk does not want to spend money enough to keep the amount of programmers needed to produce firmware in a fast and efficient manner, perhaps Sandisk should consider helping the folks at Rockbox out so that users with higher demands can use their software instead. I understand that Sandisk can not a) hand out detailed info on everything about their players and b) vouch for the security/stability of Rockbox. But this does not have to be a problem. Sandisk could just give out small fractions of information (what is needed for the Rockbox crew to clear some hurdles) and Sandisk could also say that “we can not guarantee that any other firmware than our own will work on our players and if you use another firmware, for example Rockbox, the Sandisk warranty is void.” It’s all good - as long as those of us who have higher demands on the firmware get a solution that caters to that! I’m thinking of things like the id3 support to get play order to work and the ability to adjust various settings, for example the scroll speed of song titles that are too wide for the display.
