    Currently, UConnect will alphabetize the title of music tracks on the SD card and bypass the file name altogether.

    For instance if the following were file names on the SD card, all preceded with a numerical value:

    1. noboost4you
    2. Tammie
    3. SRT_HC_707
    4. HCDC
    5. DrBuick

    UConnect would take these tracks, alphabetize them, and play them in this order:

    1. DrBuick
    2. HCDC
    3. noboost4you
    4. SRT_HC_707
    5. Tammie

    The file name is ignored altogether. It makes it difficult to listen to a Top 100 chart when they no longer play in the chart's determined order.

    Am I overlooking a setting somewhere, or is this another one of UConnect's poorly designed features?

    I don't know how to change UConnect's behavior, but you can certainly change the track info in Windows, just right-click on a file, choose Properties, then go to the Details tab and edit the Title. I would guess there's probably some freeware utility out there that will do it in batch mode.

    Is the info set correctly inside the MP3 itself, in the tag info?

    Track
    Artist
    Song title

    Etc

    There must be a way to insert some kind of tag, time to play around and see.

    Sure, I can edit the tags on the computer, but I shouldn't have to do the extra work. UConnect should read the file name and play the songs as they're listed. Wonder if UConnect would read and interpret .m3u playlist files? That would prevent the need from editing every single music file's tag.

    It might. But that program is pretty good. Can batch edit files.

    Did you try folders

    Code:
    Artist >
              Album > 
                      01_blah.mp3
                      02_next_song.mp3

    I'll try the program.

    It's the only folder on the SD card. 001 - 100 files. Would seem like a no-brainer ;)

    Update: UConnect raises its nose to .m3u playlist files. Only way to correct this issue is to batch edit the files. A-boo.

    One thing you might consider is just doing an end-run around the SD card issue. Spend $70 on eBay for a used iPod Nano. Use iTunes to put together a playlist of all your music and you're done.

    iTunes is the devil.

    The MP3tag software was the magic fix. After a short learning curve, renaming the 100 titles happened in a couple seconds.

    Glad to hear it! I should've quoted who I was replying to -- it was the comment above mine saying "F it. Too much work."
