Hello. I just bought a Sansa Clip Sport to replace a faulty Sansa Fuze.The main use will be to play audiobooks.I picked this over the Zip because of the larger screen. The Fuze was easy to use for audiobooks but I'm having

The file sorting issues on the Clip Sport is a pain but, fortunately there are workarounds (albeit tedious ones). One of the best is using a software such as Mp3tag to change the ID3 tags on your files:

Thank you for your kind reply. I'm very sad that Sandisk has put out a product that requires these workarounds. My Sansa Fuze and Fuze plus are wonderful and easy to use. And it's clear they are revered by the public as used players are going for up to hundreds of dollars on e-bay. I will be returning my Clip Sport.
I should ask whether the Clip Zip will handle these files better.
Thanks again for your help.

You're welcome. If you ask me the Clip+ and Clip Zip are superior players for use with audiobooks or large music collections but on the other hand it is quite easy to change the ID3 tags in bulk and thus make the Clip Sport work well with non-drm audiobooks if you need it to. Don't feel obliged to return the Sport if you don't want to.

The Sport is a more limited Clip player, apart from battery capacity and a somwhat larger screen. If you wish a full-featured Clip, try either the Clip+ or Clip Zip. Wish I could say otherwise.

Thanks for your advice. I can probably use some help with ID3's. I reviewed a you tube vid and don't quite follow. If I have a 6 disc audiobook do I convert a whole disc from the main folder or do I click on the main folder to open all the files on that disc and then continue?
Also if I copy files as is to a micro card will I get the same result as copying to the audiobooks folder?
The screen size on the other clips is sure small. A challenge for 60+ year old eyes.(lol)
