Fixing the DX100 sorting bug
I think I posted this waaaaay back, but here we go again. The DX100 still has some issues when it comes to playing music in the correct order, despite file names and tags being on point. This is due to the lovely (not lovely) Rockchip SOC used. It actually sorts files by the order they were written to the storage, so let's make sure everything is written in alphabetical order!
You: "Wait, do you want me to spend 5 hours transferring 64gb of music AGAIN - but in alphabetical order?!?"
Me: "Nope, there's a tool for that."
Enter: CopyInOrder. This tool was written specifically to deal with the Rockchip issue and copies files in proper order. But instead of transfering everything again, let's be smart. Connect the DX100 to your (Windows) computer via USB, enable USB storage on the DX100 etc, so you can see the contents of the internal storage in Windows Explorer. Fire up CopyInOrder and get to work!
Here, we're selecting the target folder in CopyInOrder. Create a new folder (I've named mine "Music2" because I'm such a creative spirit) on the DX100 where you want the music to go.
Now you drag & drop the files from the old music folder onto the list, as shown above. Be sure to check the box for moving the files instead of copying them. Once everything is added to the list, hit that "Copy Files" button and let the program do the dirty work for you. It'll take a few minutes, but still WAY faster than transferring everything again. Once that's done, eject/safely disconnect the DX100 from your computer and give it a few minutes to scan all those exciting "new" files that have been added.
Enjoy all your correctly ordered tracks. All of the above also works with your microSD cards.
