Jumbled Tracks On Audiobook

Question

 

Help!

I bought Roxio creator 2009 because I was having trouble putting my audio books on to my MP3 player. The tracks would be out of order, this would not really be noticeable on music, but is crucial in a book!

 

The book is really long...........24 CDs.... but the MP3 player is 4GB so should not be a problem. However, although the instructions are straightforward the tracks are still out of order and I don't know how to fix it since I bought Roxio specifically to fix this problem. No matter how I wiggle or jiggle it, change settings or the way I download I cannot get it to play the CDs or tracks in order. The MP3 is not set to shuffle as I have checked it over and over.

 

Can anyone help me? Is there a tiny box I haven't ticked or something?

Would you be able to provide the order of steps used? How are the tracks labelled? Are they playing alphabetically?

 

I loaded each CD onto windows media, which put them into 'my music' folder automatically. I then renamed them as CD 1 followed by book name, CD 2 etc. Then I started Roxio converter and just followed the instructions using the 'add files or folders' option. The instructions for getting the tracks onto the MP3 player are straightforward and seemed to go smoothly. The MP3 player is a Wharfdale 6687 . The tracks go over and then seem to be listed on the player as Track 1, track 1, track 1, track 2, track 2 etc so of course they are jumbled. there didn't seem to be an option for editing the track numbers in roxio, so I was expecting them to transfer as folders so that I didn't have to alter them manually which would be mind bogglingly tedious.

 

Thanks for your help. (I have now retrieved the MP3 player from the garden, my aim being good enough to get it through an open window last night)!

It seems that you have tracks that have not being recognized in WM database and extracted with generic, track01, track02 and so on for each CD. What this means is that you have multiple tracks with identical names from different CDs. Since the discs are not automatically recognized, they failed to be named accordingly. What you might want try is try using "Rip from CD" within Roxio Audiobook Creator and see if the tracks are being recognized by CDDB. That will avoid you having to rename each track manually :) Also note that max duration for a single audiobook is 12 hours.

 

BTW here is a tutorial that might be helpful as well.

Thanks, I will try that and see what happens. How will I get around the 12 hour limit though. Will it be possible to section the book into, say, three sections :huh: and rename each section something different?
