I have looked all over trying to find out how to play back separate folders individually.
Example: I drag and drop 3 different folders into the clip. Oldies, Rock & Jazz.
I can’t figure out how to play, for example Rock only. Sometimes I don’t want to hear songs
from Oldies or Jazz. Just Rock. How do I get the clip to do that?
Thanks in advance.
I must have done something wrong. It’s still shuffling through all the folders.
I used the Mp3tag. I put the songs into it. Clicked on genre and then clicked selected filename-tag
in the Convert tab.
Then I clicked on Convert and it said all the files were converted.
I put them into the clip after deleting all the ones I had in there.
To test it I only put two folders in but it was switching between them.
Any idea what I did wrong?
Highlight the set of files you want to tag, then in the left window, type the genre, i.e. Jazz or whatever, in the genre box. Then click the little “Save” icon (looks like a floppy disc) in the toolbar. Load files to Clip.
Another option, in some ways easier, (until they support folder navigation on the Clip) is to create a playlist for each Genre using this program http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=41782 You just have to remember to run it again when ever you add new music to the clip.
That did it. Finally, I can differentiate between folders.
This makes the experience so much more satisfying. Sometime you just don’t want to skip from
one genre to another when I only want to listen to one.
Thank you guys for the help.
BTW, I’m still wondering why they set it up the way they did.
It is SOOO annoying that there is nothing that does this on a Mac. Many pretenders that do a bunch of stupid stuff with filenames etc, but apparently nothing MAC based that jams what you want throughout a subtree (not just one directory) into genre or whatever tag. I haven’t seen hardly any other utility function (free) that is missing in the Mac world.
