My mediaportal mont sort after tracknumber, only filename


#1

I'm trying this for the first time today.

The filename is like this:
Bal-Sagoth - 05 - Journey To The Isle Of Mists (Over The Moonless Depths Of Night-Dark Seas)

I delete:
Bal-Sagoth - 05 -

So i have:
Journey To The Isle Of Mists (Over The Moonless Depths Of Night-Dark Seas) in filename.

The track is correct.
Why does my album show up in alfabetical and not sorted by track?

When i edit a album in mp3tag and get the right track order and save it, it shows up in alfabetical order next time i open it?

When i right-click a file and look at the properties, the track is correct.

Anyone know what i am doing wrong?

Thx

Several questions:
Do you fill the tags or do you only rely on the filename to have the information about the track? If the tags are empty then MP3tag will sort the filename.
If you have filled the tag "track no" (or as internal variable: %track%) the you may click on the column header in the MP3tag's list view to sort by that column.

If you have not yet filled the tags then use the converter "filename tag" to retrieve the information from the filename (before you delete it). Once you have imported the information, it is much easier to manipulate it and to rename the files the way you like it.
