Good advice! Thank you Black-Rectangle for your input.
The program is great! I can re-name and re-track everything I’ve got including those pesky merged tracks that I created with an mp3 splitter/joiner.
Now, I still don’t know what caused the original problem that I had with this particular CD, but I strongly think that my storing the sync list for the Fuze as a WMP 11 playlist and then synching the playlist, instead of individual files, to the Fuze, perpetuated it.
Earlier I had, of course, re-ripped the CD and resynced it to the Fuze, including a re-made merged track on CD1, before I sought help from the fine folk here at Sansa, but the Fuze still did the same thing with the files. However, after I took your advice and used the Tag editor you recommended, the problem still persisted, even though I changed the track listing on both CD’s to be continuous in number (NOTE: After I re-tracked and re-synched my db to WMP 11, it still listed this CD set as two CD’s, but with my track listing intact, even though the tracks were moved from two folders to one in my db and I had put continuous numbering on all tracks. This is not a problem, just an observation).
That was when I tried reformating the SD card, erasing the WMP playlist db stored on it. And then when I tried re-synching just the formerly problematic MP3 file, without going through a playlist, viola! The Fuze handled it predictably! That is, all the tracks were in order and were shown as one continuous file listing in one folder, just as I had hoped they would be!
I then deleted the old listing in my sync playlist and added the new, re-made listing and after reformatting and resynching the Fuze to the re-made playlist, everything still came out as expected! :smileyvery-happy:
I will be doing a lot of driving in my new job and I know from experience that my Fuze will be my boon companion for those long drives between jobs.
Thanx BR; know that you are appreciated!
