    mp3 track order (showing up out of order)

    Let me preface this by saying that all of my mp3 files were originally sorted by iTunes.

    Whenever I load an album in CF that has more than 1 disc, the play order of the mp3s gets goofed up.

    iTunes labels them like this if there is more than 1 album:

    2-01 song_name.mp3

    The '2' indicates the disc number and the '01' indicates the track number.

    Say the files from 2 discs from the same album are labeled like this:
    1-01 Song1.mp3
    1-02 Song2.mp3
    1-03 Song3.mp3
    2-01 Song1.mp3
    2-02 Song2.mp3
    2-03 Song3.mp3

    CF will then display them in this order:
    2-01 Song1.mp3
    1-01 Song1.mp3
    2-02 Song2.mp3
    1-02 Song2.mp3
    2-03 Song3.mp3
    1-03 Song3.mp3

    Any ideas how to get CF to read the mp3s in their intended order? Is CF using the ID3 tags to determine track and disc numbers, or is it relying on file name? The ID3 tags appear to correlate with the file names.

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to update the ID3 tags of the files. CF reads those, not the filename.
