Just a quick post.
Ok an annoying thing that’s plagued me is that with mediamonkey (best media player ever!) when I’ auto tagging stuff from amazon is that I don’t get any leading zeros. When i then auto organise the files on my hdd they get named with no leading zeros. Stupidly this causes sorting algorithms (without application of logic) to fail (because in the computer world 10 onwards comes after 1 and then it will list track 2 – 9). Pretty much EVERYONE who handles files and media playback has fixed this issue (try it in your file manager). My E71′s music played deals with it correctly. However the guys at rockbox seem to think it’s not a bug but a feature and (in their slightly arrogant ways) dismissed this as a bug (i quote: it’s the users job to tag files correctly). Regardless of whether the rockbox team can be bothered to actually apply logic to sorting i’ve found a quick easy way to fix the problem in my library.
You can autosort files by using track#:2 instead of plain old track#. This will make all track numbers 2 digits (adding a leading zero to single digit track numbers accordingly). You can replace 2 with any number you like.
But you might also want to fix this in the DB itself. So….
A cool script by Bex http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14822
This script is awesome in that it’s not just for fixing the leading zero problem, but it can correct cases and all kinds of other cool stuff. You can apply it on a selection of tracks via right-click or if you open the script options you have a nice big button to fix all tracks in the library
Shame my old Iriver 320 has finally died on me (in terms of the hdd) and until i have the cash to buy a new one (perhaps a 100GB one or i might just go SSD) I’m not using rockbox anyway (unless they port it to Symbian ). I kinda like having all my gadgets in one though….it’s really convenient.
