    Playlist Numbering Error

    I am using the dafault MP3 Player but I have Bebopper and it does the same thing.

    I am having a couple of problems with my play list. I am using an SD card reader to move my files.

    1. I don't seem to be able to carry the track name or anything to the phone. The phone names everything Track-01 Track-02 etc.

    2. After Track-10 the numbering starts over again with Track-01

    I'm confused.

    I have tried erasing the playlist file and rebuilding it automatically.

    I can't figure this one out.

    How long are the filenames? If they're too long, that might happen. Not sure.

    I am using rather long file names.."

    "r is for ricochet - 01.mp3" for example.

    I tried adding "ricochet.mp3" and it named it "Track-09"
    There are currently 5 "Track-09"s on my playlist

    That name is not really very long. It sounds like it's having a problem deciphering the ID3 tag information in the MP3 files. In Bebopper, go into the Preferences. Activate the checkbox for "Show filename (not ID3 title)". Make sure you have the most recent version of Bebopper installed from http://www.belltools.com.

    Beyond that, what program do you use to create your MP3s? Do you use an ID3 tag editor? Maybe one or the other program you're using is causing the problem (i.e. corrupt ID3 tags).

    Both are pulling those track titles from the ID3 tag data. Whatever app you used to encode and/or tag the files could not determine the album from which the tracks came. Instead of leaving the tags blank, though, it wrote generic information.

    The option SilverDrgn mentioned to show the the actual filename is a good workaround.

    "Activate the checkbox for "Show filename (not ID3 title)"."

    WOW - Thanks for that hint. It solves my problem.

    Now I have my book approximately 7 minutes at a time. 50 Files, all in order easy to work with.

    Thanks Again
