I check out library books on CD, create a named folder on both the Clip & my comp, use Audiograbber to upload them to the folder in my comp, and then drag & drop the book folder into the Clip (overwriting the Clip’s folder of the same name) & return the original books to the library. Generally I delete the bookfile I’ve just listened to first, and them upload another, so the Clip doesn’t get too full, but there are always several books stored in it. The person who gave me the Clip this Christmas is sick of my questions about it, so here goes:
1)What I need to be able to do is to access the book under a file name (in Music, or wherever) Click on the book to listen to it, and have the cds chain, so that the book is continuous rather than my having to click back on the player, look up the book, scan down the “albums” and click on the next saved cd. For example: Go to Music–>Artists–>At Wit’s End [one of the novels] and have all the saved files play in sequence. My worst-case scenario to date is with The Divine Comedy. I saved it like this in Audiograbber: Artist= Commedia. Album= Commedia 1 (etc). When I dragged the folder in & attempted to listen to the book in the Clip (taking the path of Music, Artist, Commedia, play all) to my dismay each track would play & then automatically repeat itself…so I found myself having to click the “forward” arrow twice on every single track to get to the next one! (Do I need to say that after about two hours of doing this…in the middle of Purgatorio…I began to feel I was in my own Purgatory & started listening to something else?)
I figure there’s some correct way to save the book cds…and I just don’t have the “magic words” quite right…whether it’s the way I’m saving the books or the way I’m filing it on the Clip. Audiograbber asks for 3 things: Compilation disk (check the box or not), Artist, and Album. What to do? I’ve tried just about everything, but it’s gone from bad to worse.
Second question: I had been downloading books to my Clip at the rate of about 10min a cd file…and now that I have a couple of gigs in there its either crashing or stopping. I got a firmware update, and am now in the process of removing all my saved folders–about 8 books–slowly,very s-l-o-w-ly from my Clip, back to my comp so I can format the clip. *sigh* will this “fix” it?
