For years I have been using Total Recorder (Prof edition) to split audio book files and MP3 Tag to tag them to put onto my MP3 player. Once I got the hang of tagging I didn't have any problems. I am running Windows 7.
My problem is this. I am trying to tag an audio book which is in 12 parts. I have split each of the 12 parts into about 19 files to make bookmarking more practical (1 hour long tracks are a pain). When I load all of 12 parts into MP3 Tag and 'auto track number' the tracks show up fine in the MP3 Tag screen. But in Windows explorer the track numbers are corrupted.
In an attempt to identify where the problem is I have discovered that if I 'auto track number' cumulatively up until part 5 all is OK in Windows. But as soon as I 'auto track number' and include Part 6 I start to have problems. I am wondering if it is something to do with going over 100 tracks, but this has never been a problem before, and my track numbers are 3 digits.
I have spent a couple of days trying to find out what the problem is, but I am stumped. I attach a screen grab of Windows Explorer. You will see there are 2 track of track 8 and later on the track numbers jump from 23 to 28, 29 then down to 24, then 28 appears again a bit later on. But the track numbers are fine in MP3 Tag. Just can't listen to an audiobook with the tracks all messed up like this.
Any ideas as to why this is happening?
