You're gonna wanna tag them appropriately or things won't show up how you may intend them to. I've posted details on how to do this already. I recommend you consider setting things up in playlists as its similar to the concept you want and is organized exactly how you want it to be organized. Just sync things in alphabetical order and it will all show up that way.
The below directions are in large part for the Hisound products but you can still use them to help you get your tags properly working as I did myself. If you are gonna be using FLAC files then I recommend you only have the (FLAC) tag embedded and be sure to remove any other tags like ID3V2 etc. You can embed your album art as well if you want it to show up. There is an easy work around if you are patient to get them to show up on 1.1.7. They will show up on 1.2.3 but the sound is crap on that firmware. Basically you want your filename of your songs to be like this "01 Say you will". You do not want dashes and you need to have that 0 before the 1 so 01, 02, 03, 04. Otherwise your files won't show up in order. Also remove clutter such as composer, disc number, comments. Under the "Track" colume in mp3 tag you also want it to reflect "01, 02, 03, 04" etc.
Use mp3 tag to tag your files.
Step 1: Download Mp3tag
Step 2: Go into Tool/Options. Under Tags you have Mpeg and Ape, Mpc... You want to make sure Read is check marked for both Mpeg and Ape. For "Write" make sure only ID3v1 is checked (for both Mpeg and Ape). Under "Remove" check ID3v2 and APE. If you have APE files it is recommended not to use them as those files work slow on the Studio V. Convert them over to FLAC instead. Then select Ok to apply changes in options.
Step 3: Drag and drop your files you wish to apply this to. I recommend doing this from your Hard drive if you wanna save time as the changes can be applied much faster this way. Then again reloading your Studio V and SD card could take the same amount of time. It's really only a 1 time process thing so it's not a big deal. Anyways once you've dragged and dropped the files you wish to apply these changes to, highlight all the files or click on the "Filename" area and then press Ctrl + A. Now Select Remove tags or that big X just below "Edit" (top left corner area of Mp3tag). Once all tags have been removed simply click "undo Changes" located next to "Remove tags". This will restore all your tags on the fly except for v3.2 tags. To be on the safe side you can also select "Save" to ensure these changes stay. This is located to the left of "Remove tags".
Step 4: I also recommend cleaning up your tags. If you have junk such as "Comment", "Composer", "Disc number", and "embedded album art" this will all contribute to slowing down your device. I'll tell you how to remove all this on the fly. Again press Ctrl + A to hilight all your files. Then under Comment/Composer/Disc number select <blank> for them all. Once you've completed this now right click on the album art area (located below disc number). Select "Remove Cover". Now all you have to do now is Select "Save" and it will apply all these changes for you (just make sure all your files are constantly hilighted when doing all the above directions in order to apply them).
Problem should be solved and your player should be rather responsive on start up. Mine takes roughly 16 seconds (correction) to load from the SD card and on-board. I did a countdown myself and it's 16 seconds for my unit (20 seconds if you start the countdown from when you first power the unit on). Enjoy folks! :)
