 (Entry last updated on May 6th, 2002)

If you have used the 'Mark' key in version 2.0 or later of the player software (it's the 4 button on the Kenwood remote or the Cancel/Mark button on the Rio remote), you can use Emplode 2.0 or later to see the marked tracks. There are a few ways you can do it:

  • Marked tracks have a different icon in Emplode than the other tracks. If you like, you can use the "All Tracks" view to see them.

  • You can select View/Details, right-click on the column headers, select the "Columns" menu option, and add the column for "Marked" to the display. You can sort on this column by clicking on its header if you like.

  • You can also use Emplode's Advanced Search feature to find the tracks. Do an Advanced Search on the term marked to locate all marked tracks.
The purpose of marking tracks is so that you can remind yourself to do editing on the files the next time you run Emplode. For instance, maybe you decide you don't like a song and you want to delete it. Or perhaps the song was a bad rip and you want to re-rip it. You could also mark your favorite tracks so that you can create a special playlist out of them later.

Note that there is only one kind of mark. You can't specify different types of marks. It's meant to be just a reminder, so when you see the mark in Emplode, you can check the song and remember what you wanted to do with it.
