Thanks for the tips. For the moment I have given up on using wma files. I haven’t found a way to convert the tags from mp3 to wma, and when I manually enter the wma tags using Media Monkey they don’t show up in Windows Explorer except for the usual filenames, and when using Advanced Tag Editor they do show up in Windows Explorer but the thought of redoing thousands of tags is daunting. So I bought some additional memory for the Fuze and will stick with the larger mp3 files.
Since I last posted I have been going over all of my Mp3 tags to make sure that thay are correct. So far the corrected tags are working on the Fuze the way they should. One thing that bothers me is that there are many fields one can fill in when using a tag editor, but Fuze only utilizes a few of these. I might have missed it but I could find no mention of which fields Fuze uses, either in the manual, reading FAQs here, or by searching. It seems to me that it uses the track # field to order the tracks (which is what this thread is supposed to be about although I got it off on a tangent), but it doesn’t display that field. I think it does display whatever is in the title field, so if one wanted to see the track # one would write it into the song’s title, correct? I feel as a newbie to this that Sansa is not giving enough information on how to tag for the Fuze; specifically which fields to fill in, and a few different scenarios on how to fill them in to get different results. I know that one can goggle to find generic info on tagging, but there ought to be instructions or a FAQ specific to the way the Fuze handles the tags.
Thanks for the help. I think I’m getting it now but the learning curve turned out to be way steeper than I had imsgined.
