Track Ordering Issues

I got my Clip+ today and have noticed on a number of albums I've imported onto the device, no matter what I do the album tracklist will not go into the right order. How can I amend this? I've renamed every track to start with the track number, edited the tracks properties to say what track number it is and still, the album starts with something like track number seven and the track entitled "intro" is ironically last.

 

Any way to try and sort this out so everything is actually in the right order?

Re: Track Ordering Issues

You need to edit the ID3 tags of the files. Changing the file names themselves won't help. A great, free dedicated tag-editor is MP3Tag. The first thing you want to do is change the default Write setting to ID3v2.3 ISO-8859-1. This is the format that works best with Sansa players. Then you can edit the titles as needed to play numerically and correct any errors that may be present. Just remember to hit the SAVE icon when you're through to save the changes.

 

Also note that it generally works better to make these changes to the file while it's on your computer. Delete the ones on the player and transfer back the newly-edited files.
