Default Numbering ripped audiobook CDs

As a brand new Clip owner I'm full of questions and I've read through the forum but did not really find an answer to the numbering sequence that should be used for ripped CDs. For my old m200 Sansas I've used this method in WMP11 under Music/albums: 001 Book Title 002 Book Title etc. If only one book is on the player Play All works fine. If more than one, the books listed under Music/albums would read: 001 First Book Title 001 Second Book Title, 002 First Book Title, 002 Second Book Title etc. Play all for each book does not work and each CD has to be opened individually which is inconvenient but works OK. I also include the artist which appears on another line. Where and how should the numbering sequence be placed for an audiobook so that the CDs will be listed one after another? Thanks, Donna in Arkansas

You must use the ID tags within the files. Names are almost ignored Mp3 Tag Studio should work.

almost ignored how about completely ignored, SanDisk players use ID3 tags.

And according to my tests, ID3v1 'track number' tags are ignored. Works well w/ ID3v2 'track number'. This was at least true w/ firmware 1.01.11F, didn't test w/ 1.01.11[AEF] though.

Default RE: Battery problem and ripped audiobooks

I have not yet returned my Blue Clip although it does have a battery problem and I have to charge it every day. Since everything else works perfectly I decided just to continue using it until it dies as I have a BB replacement policy. I get about 6-7 hours of play. Further, pausing and letting it power down seems to make no difference but I only use that occasionally. I use WMP11 because of its simplicity to rip any audio CDs. It asks for title, artist and genre. Based on my experimentation there are no ID tags for books and since I don't do music all I can speak for are audiobooks. I rip each CD as an album numbered 001book title, 002 book title etc. I use 128 bitrate as that is lowest WMP11 allows for MP3. If on a rare occasion the WMP11 does bring up info it reads Book Title CD1 etc. Since I prefer to see my numbers early on because of the shortness of the read line I put the number first. Unlike Sansa m200 series which will play all using this form the Clip will only play each CD one at a time and will go back to the beginning when finished. Play ALL on the Clip does not work and I assume it has to do with the ID tags and no software to join tracks as iTunes permits. It is not a problem for me to select each CD in order as I need it and the Clip resumes my place perfectly if I am in the middle of a CD. There is almost 0 info for book listeners so I hope this will help others. I can switch between my Audible book and the ripped book and my place is there; I just have to go back into music and select the location. I would not say this is a player for a book fanatic but it is a nice extra player for $45 2GB.

Maybe a playlist is what you need (m3u files). This has been discussed several times on this forum (and http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board?board.id=clip).
