Red face Yamipod Classical Music Track Order


Classical music buffs will never use Shuffle as compositions must be in an exact sequence by track -- unless you listen to excerpts -- Heaven forbid!

I have some folders, say Beethoven Sonata, where the tracks are out of sequence when I transfer them from my iPod to my SuSE 10.1 hard drive via YamiPod.

This spells disaster for my music.

If I manually arrange the mp3 files inside a folder in proper sequence, they will return to the original disorder after I close the folder.

Any solution here? It seems like my software ought to be able to sequence by track, but I can't find that function.

I don't want to dump all this good music just because it's not in the right order!

How are your tracks titled as you see them in your folder? Are you using artist names? track names, numbers? or a combination of the afore mentioned?

This is the order:

Meta Info Tab
ID3 Tag
Title
Artist
Album
Track
Genre
Year

I get this information from a menu when I right click on an mp3 file in a folder. The menu is titled Properties. I assume it's a generic SuSE menu and not YamiPod or Amarok.

I think you've misunderstood what I'm asking. When you look at the file in the folder (without clicking on it) how is it labled? Basically if you have numbers in the track and your numbers go from 1 to say 15 in order for them to sort from 1 to 15 you need to put a zero in front of the single numbers. 01, 02, 03 etc. I hope I'm on the right track here

I understand your concept, but I see no way to input or alter anything to my MPEG files. What's the procedure?

It would just be a case of editing the filename and inserting the extra number. Can you post or list one of the track names as you see it in the folder here in this forum then I could edit it to show what I mean.

I'm talking about a MPEG Layer 3 audio file that I extracted from a CD that I purchased. How is it possible to edit a proprietary file? It can't even be opened except to play the music. Or I can hold my cursor over it and a window will identify it but that won't even copypaste. I can't access these any more than you can access an Apple iTunes AAC file.

If I'm missing something here, what's the procedure??

Let's say for arguments sake that the file is called 1beethovens5th.mp3

All you need to do is right click the file, left click on rename (the filename should now be highlighted), then left click at the point where you want to edit and add what you need to.

In this case you would click before the number 1 (or at least ensure the cursor is before the number 1) add the 0 then press enter to save the change (you should be asked to confirm the name change).

You should end up with a file titled 01beethovens5th.mp3 Proprietary or not, if it's on the hard disk you can rename that file to whatever you wish even AAC files.

Again to paste the filename here you would right click it, choose rename, when it's highlighted right click it again and choose copy. This will copy the filename into memory, you can then paste it anywhere you wish.

If you make a mistake, before pressing enter to save the changes, just press your esc key and the changes will not be committed.

If you're not too sure about using the above method, It might be better if you practise changing the name of a document (word) file. Something that you don't mind making mistakes with.
