Losing my spot in audiobooks on refresh

I got the clip sport plus exclusively to play mp3 Audiobooks and it is for the most part going ok, but unfortunately I lose my spot in the book each time I let the battery run out(the instructions tell you to for the first few uses) or when i complete a charge. At this point the player will display the message “refreshing your media”, and my place in the book will be lost, meaning i have to press the fast-forward button for potentially 10+min to retrieve it.

I believe the refresh is the culprit; is there any way to keep my progress between charges? bypass the refresh maybe?

The issue was i was playing via the music folder rather than audiobook folder, i resolved to cutting up my mp3 into chapters for the fast-forwarding issue.
