I use an IPod to listen to plays and spoken books which I either convert from CD or record from internet radio stations. I normally split these into short (5 minute) files so that I can navigate easily through the play/story. So I generate a set of MP3 files with similar names, e.g. bleakhouse01.mp3 bleakhouse02.mp2 bleakhouse03.mps bleakhouse04.mp3 ..... etc. I keep all my MP3 files in a folder unrelated to ITunes. I then create a playlist in ITunes, and import the files into it. The files are not, however, imported into the ITunes music library. Frequently, though not always, I find that ITunes loses the detailed information and I end up with a set of files all with the same name, e.g. 'bleakhouse.mp3'. I have no idea if these are in the right order so I have no option but to go thorugh the files one by one and change their names. Thsi is very tedious and also very annoying because is shoudn't be necessaray. Am I missing something? Can anyone suggest a remedy?
