I just downloaded The Doors from HD Tracks yesterday. Format is 24/96 FLAC. When I copy these to my USB thumb drive I have tracks 10 & 11 right after track 1. The rest are in order. How can I sort them in the proper order?

This is a function of the device you are using, or of a DNLA server software.

With that type of sorting, you'll need to re-name the files to "001", "002", etc.

Thank you. I'm using PS3 Media server with my Oppo BDP-93 and I'll also use a USB drive. How exactly do I go about re-naming the files. Do I re-name in the HD Tracks music folder?

Thanks again!

EDIT: I renamed 001, 002, etc. Did not work, it still did:

001-Break On Through
0010-Take It As It Comes
0011-The End
002-Soul Kitchen

the rest are fine

That's going to be a "feature" of the server software, and it's probably using something other than the file names for sorting. (tags, etc). After re-naming them be sure to re-scan the server library. From a USB drive, the player should list them correctly.

You could try opening the files in Foobar or some other tool for naming and tagging and see how they look.

You know whats funny, they are not listed right even from my USB drive which has me perplexed.

Forgot to mention I'm on a Mac

All I can tell you is that tracks with similar names are listed correctly here with the BDP-93. They have names: "01 track01", "02 Track02", etc.

Quote:


001-Break On Through
0010-Take It As It Comes
0011-The End
002-Soul Kitchen

Just noticed, that should be 001, 002, 010, 011. Not 0010, 0011.

Actually, it should be:

01 Name of first track
02 Name of second track
....
10 Name of tenth track
11 name of eleventh track

The sorting algorithm will "see" the 0 column digit first (the one in base ten that would be for 10s), then look at the 1 column digit, for two digits (there is no reason at all to make them three digit numbers unless you have over 100 tracks per album; why make it harder than it needs to be? Every digit you add just increases the chances for user input error, like we see by the OP here).

Eliminating the extra "0" before tracks 10 & 11 did the trick. Everything is in order. I'll have to remember this step for other downloads.

Thank you.

The reason this happens is that the file system is not interpreting those as numbers but as words, and is alphabetizing them. It doesn't know how to sort by numbers at all.

Alphabetically, "10" through "19" come before "2". That's why you should make sure that all the track numbers are the same number of letters long (it doesn't think of them as "digits") by using leading zeros.

0 comes before 1 in the alphabet, so "02" would come before "10" - solving the problem.
