MessageHi Neal,

It's not even working with a directory order.  I just placed 13 files in 1 by 1 
and it plays them in some order that it see's fit to play them.  I guess I'll 
will do all my listening on the bookport and leave the WS320 to it's real 
function recording.

Thanks,

Rick

  Rick, That's too bad.  Olympus must be different from things like the Ipod, 
the Iriver, and the Sandisk player that all allow numeric ordering of 
selections.

    Hi Neal ,

    tried that already and no luck I put them in Alpha and numeric order with 
no luck either way.   I think it only understands directory order.

      Rick, I'm not sure how you are generating the files, but I have found 
that many such recorders can be made to play files in order if you simply 
rename them as exemplified below
      01 Rick's song
      02 Neal's song
      03 Dan's mournful song about running out of scotch
      It can be a pain to do this, but some ripping software will allow one to 
add a prefix to the song title thus making it unnecessary to go in and rename 
each file.  I haven't tried to see if the bookport honors this scheme or not.  
Probably something I should do for my own curiosity.

      Neal

        Hi,

        I asked about a week ago about the order of playing music files in the 
WS320.  Well I haven't tried it yet but I am now assuming that it is like the 
BookPort and it probably puts files in directory order.  So if you need to 
listen to some files in a certain order then you must place them in the WS320 
music folder 1 at a time instead of selecting the whole batch of files  at once.

        Rick
