The clip doesn’t use folder browsing, you need to use the correct tags.  A search will show about 3987324523 threads about it.

Yes, umpteen threads about ordinary customers floundering due to the lack of folder browsing. And nerds berating them about how easy it is to spend hours to solve with specialized software.

 PLEASE SANSA, RELEASE CLIP FIRMWARE TO BROWSE BY FOLDER RATHER THAN THESE EXASPERATING TAGS!

Sansa otherwise has the finest firmware architecture - very capable and user friendly. But how can I justify further Sansa products when this one is so needlessly crippled? Buy the Clip+ at such elevated prices, just due to a defect in Clip firmware?

 What I have done is buy non Sansa players that do folder browsing, even when they are crappy in other ways. I use the Clip when the tags happen to be correct, but for the rest I get along with other players rather than wasting time, frustration, and disk space fiddling with tags.

If you look, at a lot of places the Clip+ is cheaper than the old Clip…so I don’t know where you are getting “elevated prices” from.:stuck_out_tongue:

(BTW we discuss the clip+ because it allows playing by folder)

Every search before today, I had found the clip+ to have a huge price jump over the clip- at it’s old street price of $50 for 8gb. Actually even the clip- went up in price for a while. But now I notice the clip+ has in fact become affordable, if not a bargain compared to some others. I have already been driven to sink money into competitors, but in different circumstances could now consider the clip+

oh,my friends i dont understand anything …please anyone explain me what i do:cry:

look at the threads below on music playing order and podcast order. I don’t have personal experience with all the work you have to do, because it seems harder or impossible on my Mac laptop.

here is a link for updating id3 tags on a windows computer

http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/198/kw/updateing%20id3%20tags/r_id/101834

on a mac you would just right click the file and select get info then go to the summery tab. or import the files to itunes and let it find the info for you.

Mac “get info” on an mp3 file doesn’t show me a summary tab. Only tabs are “General:”, “More info:”, “Name & Extension:”, “Open with:”, “Preview:”, and “Sharing & Permissions:”. No mention of tags either there or in my initial review in itunes. Oh, I guess there is some tag-like info under “More info:” but no way to edit it.

yeah it is under more info but i forgot you cant edit it there. if you use itunes you can right click the song in itunes select get info then select the info tab. you can edit the id3 tags there.

Personally I would rather ‘invest’ my time in minor editing of ID3 tags (you only have to do it once), than wasting my hard-earned money on other crappy players.

please.my friends forgive me as my english is bad not good as you so i want someone to tell me what id step by step :robotsad:

Please see Knowledge Base: Editing ID3 Tags with Windows Media Player.

Alternatively, obtain a tag editor such as MP3Tag (free Internet software) and learn how to use it (simple enough), such as by reading its help files.  For more than ocassional use, the better way to go, in my opinion.

Mac tag utilities are only about a tenth as capable as PC ones. Virtually all lack the feature I needed (which I forget now); this is the first time I have seen such a gap in Mac capability. Most of my files are on a pre-intel-architecture Mac for which nobody writes tag utilities for anymore and it is stuck at an ancient version of tag format.

 I wasted tremendous time on this, and anyway have virtually no disk space left for creating copies anyway. NOTE much of this is for one-time-use files of the spoken word, not worthy of a lotta work just to get the friggen files in the right order. And they must be in the right order because one flows into the next.

 DEATH TO TAGS, long live folders! Sansa should realize not all customers are mindlessly grinding thru music which is forgiving about order, but using it mainly for spoken word whose order is sacred.
