Removing folder numbers...

Is it possible? if so, how?

I've renamed about 40GB worth of music to <track no.> - <track name>.mp3 but it shows the file/folder number in front of the track anyway so i end up with numbers shown everywhere. Any thoughts?

How are you playing this - MP3 CD?

Update the ID3 tags and then you can press the "Disp" or "Title" button to cycle through what's shown.

They are on my 64GB Flash drive which is plugged into the USB input, inside the centre console. It's not part of the ID3 tag, it's the i-mid folder number that is displayed i want to remove.

At the moment it will show something like
552. Velvet Revolver / 553. Contraband (2004) / 01. 01 - Sucker Train Blues.mp3

or something like that. If i remove the 01 in the filename, will it still know what order they go in from the ID3 tags? Or will it just put them into alphabetical order?

Also, the track numbers are only half the problem, the part that boggles my mind is the folder number as shown above. Why would you need to know the folder number when they are correctly titled? lol

Any help is apprieciated.

A USB stick is formatted in FAT.

With FAT it's a first in / first out scenario so you record the tracks to the USB in the order you want them to play.

If you record/copy an album in it's correct play order then it should play correctly and not alphabetically.

Where this becomes a pain is, if you record another track to the USB, it will always be at the end of the USB playlist.

[edit]

I see, so i can use a program like drivesort to put everything as i want it.

But why the numbers before each folder?

Chances are that if you lose the numbers, you'll lose the order.

Just to be clear, this is in the 9G section but your car in your profile is 2011... which model are we talking about?

haha, sorry yes, it's the 9G.

I've already done some reading on this and, if i use drivesort to re-arrange the files on the drive it will show the correct order in the car, so i'm not so worried abaout that. Bit silly though, because if i want to add another folder later on it will be added to the bottom of the list, but as i say, easily fixed with a program on the laptop.

Just to clarify though, the correct info is displayed properly on the i-mid itself, it's on the satnav screen that i'm seeing the folder numbers. I've been through the settings and i cannot see a way of turning them off. Would it help if i took a picture?

I took a picture on my phone so you can see what i mean...



good lord, look at all that dust haha

Anyway, you see 01 is root, 02 is 3 Doors Down etc etc

Just wanted to know why it displays this folder number and if there is a way to remove it. Thanks.

What I've done is to create a dedicated folder on the PC to arrange the albums and tracks in the order I want them.

I also had to make use of prefix numbers to get the PC to sort them how I wanted.

If I add a new album and want it in a specific place then I have to give it it's respective number and increase all the following ones by one to get them in place.

Then completely wipe and re copy the folder to USB.

A lot of these USB sort tools simply work alphabetically.

I've now started making use of the record to HDD facility and setup playlists.

Luckily, alphabetical is how i want it hehe. Seems a bit of a pain having to rename all of those files though just to keep the order. If you have a look at this Drivesort program, i'm pretty sure you can just drag the folders/files into whatever order you want them in and it rewrites the order for you. You wouldn't need numbers before each folder because the i-mid software reads the directories in the order they are written to disk. Give it a go, you have nothing to lose really, just make sure it's backed up just in case:

Anerty's Lair - DriveSort

[edit]
If you open the drive in windows after you have used drivesort, it doesn't matter if they are rearranged into alphabetical order, they still remain in the same order unless you use Drivesort, or add another file/folder (added to the end)

If you want alphabetic you can remove the 01 etc prefixes, perform a Windows sort, then copy the files, in order, to the USB

Thats just it though, i can't remove the number prefixes, the i-mid software adds them. If i open the flash drive in windows the folders are not numbered.
