    album track order in FP

    Is there a way to play whole albums with the right tracklisting? It seems the database organizes alphabeticaly on either ID3 tag artist or album. But even in directory mode it displays all tracks alphabetically instead of in the right order.

    My mp3's are like artist/album/01 trackname.mp3 AND they're all tagged with track nr's.

    Am I missing something here?

    I know it would be a real pain in the *** but if you changed the names to 01/artist/album trackname.mp3 then when they are in alpabetical order they would be in proper track order. There may be an easier solution out there though.

    Actually all my MP3s & APE files have the track number as the start of the filename yet FP still organizes them alphabetically. I assume FP sorts by ID3 tag names. I have requested that there be sort options...I have several hundred MP3s of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and I can't play them in order (very annoying).

    I guess building a playlist would help.....

    How? Do you have to do that for each album?

    Actually, I expected my albums would be played in order.

    It's on Frodo's "implementing right now" list, so I'll guess I'll wait with making playlists.

    Check under the Settings 2, there is an option to list by Tracknumber. That's what I do and all my albums are in order.

    Yea, I tagged all my MP3's like this:

    Artist - Album - Track Number - Title

    and FP sorts them correctly. Even if it does sort them alphabetically if you have them tagged like above they would sort correctly. 01 is before 02 etc...
