I have a series of MP3s that are podcasts. Even though I fixed all the tags to be consistent and the fielnames on Windows 7, they appear out of order on my MP3 player.
The long version of the story is that I'm a fan of Marc Gunn's Irish & Celtic Podcast. Marc's released 80-something of the podcasts, and I've got 78 of them on my PC. Unfortunately, Marc has been "lax" about naming the files consistently. So, the first thing that I did when I downloaded the first 78 is to name them consistently. Then, I used MP3Tag to fix the internal names, order the track numbers, fix the dates, author, genre, and comments. All of the things needed to get the files to play in order. In MP3Tag, they now show up in strict order.
When I then dropped the files onto Windows Media Player to sync to my MP3 Player, some of these were out of order. I went into Windows Explorer and fixed the data in the file meta-data by editing the "properties" of the files that Media Player saw out of order.
Once this was done, Windows Explorer, Media Player, and MP3Tag all saw the same set of files in the same (correct) order.
I then used Windows Explorer to drop the MP3s onto Media Player and synched the files to my MP3 Player. On the MP3 player, I see the following order:
#13 <- Missing 12
#62 <- Missing 60 & 61
#66 <- Missing 64 & 65
Any advice on how to get these in order would be really appreciated. My MP3 player is an 8 GB Meizu MiniPlayer model M6. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit edition. MP3Tag V2.46a.
