Philips GoGear PMPs don’t support track numbers at all, Just a warning not to purchase a player lacking a fundamental feature

Someone I know bought one of the recent Philips GoGear PMPs and found that it allows browsing by artist or album but then sorts tracks within the album by alphabetical order.

The only way to sort by track number is to prefix the names of the files accordingly and browse in ‘folder mode’, with all the ugliness and kludginess that entails.

I felt the need to give people a heads-up about the complete absence of such a basic feature in an entire line (verified via Google finding hundreds of questions about various devices) of media players that are made by a brand that is supposed to be respectable. This is a complete embarrassment!

The funny thing is, I had a GoGear years ago and it supported track numbers. What a regression to have made.

And no, apparently making a playlist with your desired track order doesn’t work either. This is pretty unbelievable!

Yes, Philips products tend to be...what's the word...bad.
