files that start with numbers. As to corruption, that's common and you can reduce that by using the rear USB port rather than the front on the desktops and always always and always, eject it rather than just unplugging.
I just bought the RCA TH1611-A from Walmart (~$30). It is a very nice player, except that it has some weird issues. For one, the FAT32 is easily corrupted, where I had deleted some files, but they refused to completely be removed until I ran chkdsk /f on the drive. So far, no recurrences, but I will be on the look-out.
After that, I am having a really strange problem where I have three MP3 files, all labeled in sequence (002183.mp3, 002184.mp3, 002185.mp3). However, when I upload them, either using Windows or RCA's EasyRip software, the files are always accessed in the opposite direction. The really weird thing is that I have another set of sequenced files (track 01 - ...., track 02 - ...., etc) which work correctly.
Any ideas on what the anti-dote to this witchcraft might be?
Thanks in advance.
