I just purchased the Sandisk Clip+ and a 32 gig SDHC chip. I was sick of using itunes with my iPhone and wanted something that was easy to get music on and off the player. Someone suggested Rockbox, I looked into it and liked what I saw. Now I am very frustrated.
When I transfer music onto the player, it plays things in alphabetical order. I can't seem to get anything to play in order unless the song filename has the track number at the very start. For instance: 01 - Track name. If I check the files in Foobar I can see that they do have track order listings. If I look at the files in Explorer on Windows 7, they still have number listings.
This can't be an oversight, can it? I have to be doing something wrong. Some small little setting that I am missing in the manual and on the device itself will make all my problems go away, right? Please someone tell me how to fix this. There is no way I can spend tons of hours renaming tracks or creating individual playlists for each album so things will play in the proper order. I'd just sell the device if that were the case. As much as I hate iTunes, at least it plays things in order without me having to get all crazy and in the rare occasion where tracks don't have proper tracking information, I can just fix that in iTunes.
Perhaps there is a piece of software that will make this easy?
My other, more minor, question is about the 32 gig chip. Is there a way to integrate it into the device so things are transparent? I mean so that when I turn the thing on it just sees 36 gigs of storage available rather than a second storage area?
