View Full Version : lists files in weird order
I just got an X5L 30gb. Everything is fine, except that the shell puts my mp3 directories in a weird order. The order is case-sensitively alphabetical: A-Z names first, then a-z names. At first, I thought i could solve the problem by renaming all my directories in lower case. But it still lists about a quarter of my directories as if they had upper-case names, and throws off the order accordingly. So, e.g., what shows up as "beck" on my computer appears as "BECK" on my x5.
All my music directories are in the "music" folder. For a time, I thought the folders with subdirectories were made all caps; this isn't it. What's going on?
Not sure whats going on there. Try using windows explorer to transfer the files - see if that makes a difference (its more user-friendly anyway). I only ever use Jetshell for formatting my X5.
I actually haven't tried Jetshell yet; I've been doing it through explorer the whole time. Weird, isn't it?
I had sorta the same problem - I got tired of it and just remaned all the files so they started with:
I used the drag-and-drop method of transfering all of my files - renaming was a pain but I only had to do in once.
I did not have the capitolization problem however...
no real sollutions, but is any of you is trying to rename all their files: use windows commander (google and download it) -> it has a batch rename function. you'll be done in no time ;)
First Capital indeed found that out as well, Time to rename all your files
Thanks; I'll try out your suggestions and let you know what happens.
I got windows commander. I like that mass rename. First, I tried renaming all my folders to allcaps and then shifting it back to lower-case as a means of shaking things up. Still, though, the X5 would display some of the directory names in allcaps and some in lower case. So I just put them all in allcaps, which solves the ordering problem.
