I copied a folder from my iTunes directory to my sansa clip zip Music directory. The sansa plays the songs in the wrong order. The songs are named 1a, 1b, 1c, 1d, 2a, 2b, 2c, 2d. I want sansa to play them in that order. Instead, sansa plays them in this order: 1a, 2a, 1b, 2b, 1c, 2c, 1d, 2d. This is NOT the order I want them played. So I renamed the songs 001 (for 1a), 002 (for 1b), 003 (for 1c), 004 (for 1d), 005 (for 2a), 006 (for 2b), etc. However, when I disconnect the sansa from my computer, the songs retain their old names, even though my computer shows the new names. I would appreciate help in how to make the renaming stick! My computer (a laptop) runs Windows 7 professional edition.
Sansa chat advised me to edit the id3 tags in Windows Media Player but does not help me because my music is stored in iTunes.
When I copy folders from my iTunes directory to my android phone (LG Optimus Slider), everything works fine. The songs play in the correct order. So how come I can’t make the songs play in the correct order in my sansa? I am so frustrated I feel like returning the sansa to Amazon (bought it a few days ago) even though I like the small size and the clip for use in the gym. Plus the sansa has FM, which I can tune to the audio for the the Fox TV channel while riding the stationary recumbent bike in the gym. The FM is a big plus for use in the gym.
