Trouble with audiobook bookmarking on G6 Nano


I've been using Nanos for several years now to listen to audiobooks at the gym and have never had a problem with any of the others bookmarking where I left off. But the G6 always skips back to the first stop I've ever made in a book if it hasn't been used in more than 24 hours.

Example: I listen to part of an audiobook on Monday, then when I go back to the gym on Wednesday, it's gone back to the point where I first stopped listening to the book ever (say the previous Friday). If it's of any help, when I turn on the Nano in this situation the comes on and the whole thing boots up, unlike if it's been less than 24 hours when it goes straight to the audiobook screen. And, yes, I do have "remember playback position" on.

As I said, I've never encountered the problem with any previous generation Nano (I have 1st, 2nd and 4th)—they've always just picked up where I've left off no matter how much time had passed. Anyone have the same problem? Explanations? Fixes?

Try doing something else with the nano before you put it away.

I think I have seen what you are talking about and if you just put it to sleep and the thing goes into standby mode (IE: after 36 hours it goes into standby mode), it will forget your bookmark position - but remember your bookmark before that one.

So, once you have paused your book, exit out of the audiobook player and navigate elsewhere. Maybe play a music track. This way it saves your bookmark position on your book. Then pause it and put it away.

See if that works and let us know.

Your trick works quite nicely, thanks.

It's ridiculous that it's needed though; it should just hold the place like the previous Nanos did. Do you think there's any chance they'll fix it in software updates?
