    I need help on getting Media Player 9 to play .mp3 files of music CD's in the order that the tracks are on the CD, not alphabetically as is the default. In MusicMatch, at least you can select this option after you have selected the .mp3 file. A pity you have to do it each time; but at least that clunky little option is there.

    You can manually re-set the tracks in Media player, and it will still revert the an alphabetical order when you play the file.

    Any help???

    Hiya

    Haven't installed WMP 9 on this PC yet, so this is a bit blind for me :)

    Okay, can you see the column heading 'Title'? If so, clicking on it will bring up the option's of alphabetical order or reverse. I'm assuming your's will be the first.

    Try looking in the Media Library.

    What may be happening with your list at the moment, is that if any songs begin with 'The', then these will all be played next to each other, say The Coors, The Doors, etc

    To get around this, you can highlight any title, right click and choose to move up or move down in the queue.

    Regards

    Thanks, but I tried and it did not work. The re-sorting, where you said, away from alphabetical, did not give me a list in the same order as on the CD, and Media Player still started started playing tracks in alphabetical order.

    I had already tried the business of editing the track list and moving tracks. That is simple, because there is, in fact, a list in proper order. So, all one need do is clear out the column with the alphabetical list and click on the successive tracks. This is in File| Edit Current Playlist.

    Thanks again.
