What version are you using?
was it a mistake to setup the database? i cant figure out how to make FP put my songs in order by file name even though i have the sort by file name box checked. the only thing i can think is that perhaps the database is overriding this setting, can i delete the database? if i do well my songs play in order of file name?
this and instaling my front speakers are the only 2 items left on my list to finish off my car pc
i checked this morning on my way to work and that box wasnt ticked
I seem to have the same problem with v 1.10. I installed it just now on my home system and again all my files are out of order. My files are all named "01 songname.mp3" "02 songname.mp3" and so on. When I look at them in explorer they are all in the correct order but when I look at them in frodoplayer most of them are in some random order or in reverse order.
i asked about this not too long ago and have thus found the answer since.
in settings 1 i checked the box filename so it will show the file name when it comes up
i had to change all the id tags to state the correct artist and title and i deleted everything else
go into the folder that your mp3's are and then get comfortable...
right click on a single file --> properties --> advance settings (lower right hand corner) and then edited the artist line and title line
it is VERY boring and tedious to do unless you have a better way of doing it, good luck. i have 1450+ mp3's the edit
a trick i did was in the folder of mp3's i put it on the details view and rightclicked the folder to show the filename, artist, title and comments
filename to make sure it was correct and what i wanted to see when in FP
artist the see what the order would be in FP database
title to makesure the correct order among the artists
and comments would just makesure that i edited it
cut, copy and paste are your friends
I have close to 10,000 mp3's, editing the id3 tags for all of them would take days and days and I shouldnt have to resort to that. there should be a way to order my songs by file name.
