Hi, I have a strange problem. I have a bunch of MP3 files, and I used the auto-number tool to change the track numbers. It looks fine, but then I opened Windows Media Player, and I realized that some of the track numbers were wrong. Some of them were right, but suddenly there would be a string of tracks where the numbering would jump back by a fixed number of tracks, then there would be some correct ones, then there would be some that were off by another fixed number and so on. Strange. At first I thought there was a problem with WMP, but then I right clicked, and saw that the wrong track numbers were actually visible in the details tab.
In the end I edited the track numbers by hand in WMP, and saw that this had changed the numbers in MP3tag (I use leading zeros in MP3tag, so I could tell there had been a change) and I verified this by right-clicking. I then use the auto-numbering tool to insert the leading zeros, but after deleting and adding to the library in WMP again, the problem was back.
But then I tried another audiobook with a similar problem. There editing the tracks in WMP did not change what I saw when right-clicking.
I ran MP3val, and they checked out OK.
Any suggestions? I have discovered that two more audiobooks have the same problem, and I don't want to have to edit them manually in WMP.
