Track/Album Order - Alphabetical

Post by GregiBoy » Wed Sep 05, 2007 4:50 am

Am I alone in this problem????

My MP3 Media Library always sorts an album alphabetically with Twonky.

I have tested this on multiple devices, Zensonic Z500, D-Link DSM320, iPaq RX3715 and Nero Showtime always with the same results, tracks in alpha order. I am sure that all the MP3 tags are fine and I use MediaMonkey for this.

To prove whether it was Twonky or not, I installed TVersity on another computer, pointed it's library to the same files as Twonky and all albums show up in correct track order.

I have tried Twonky in Advanced & Simple navigation modes with the same result. I have also tried to set up custom nav with no success.

I really want to get this fixed as I wish to play the albums in the correct order as the artist intended. This problem has been bugging me for nearly two years with no resolution.

I suppose I could always move to TVersity which works and is FREE. :lol:

Christian, can you comment or am I missing something?

What kind of machine are you running Twonky on? What version of Twonky?

When you use a web browser to view Twonky are they still in alphabetical order?

Twonky 4.4 on a Windows XP machine.

Track order is shown correctly in the Webbrowser but shows as alphabetical on the 4 DIFFERENT upnp clients that I have.

I have also the track order problem with albums that consist of 2 or more CDs which are placed in multiple sub directories, like this:

Aerosmith\1986 Pump\CD1
Aerosmith\1986 Pump\CD2

MP3 tag <album> of all MP3 files in both subdirectories contain "Pump" (not "Pump CD1" + "Pump CD2"), <track> are: CD1: 1,2,3... CD2: 1,2,3...

The problem is: if I navigate to the Album "Pump" and select play, the tracks are played in this order:

CD1, track 1
CD2, track 1
CD1, track 2
CD2, track 2
CD1, track 3
CD2, track 3
...

but I want to hav this order:
CD1, track 1
CD1, track 2
CD1, track 3
...

Is there a solution for this ?
