Default SOLVED: Clip Audiobook sort problem

Hi folks,

I have a recurring problem with my Clip and I could use some help solving it.

Here goes:

I have found out (internet & trial+error) that I can more or less reliably get my audiobooks in the correct sort order by editing the tags with MP3TAG to the effect that:
- title contains the track number (with leading zeroes)
- album artist contains the author
- album contains the title of the book.

However, in (only) three of my current stack of audiobook files, Clippy stubbornly refuses to order in any other order than:

010
020
030
...
100
110
...
001
011
021
...
etc

Does anyone have the slightest inkling why this could be the case?

Thanks a lot for any tips...

EDIT - here it seems they have a solution but I tried those tips and it doesn't have any effect. Maybe the internal database is corrupted so deleting and restoring doesn't have any effect?

Ok, found the reason: The only books that got sorted wrong were the ones with more than 99 mp3's; and I numbered my tracks as yyy/xxx.

01/26 as track number is accepted just fine, but as soon as the number of tracks exceeds 99 this seems to stop working.

So indeed, changing track number to 123 from 123/166, solved the problem.

Just fyi (and yes, this was suggested in the link I quoted, but I thought that wouldn't be it because it worked fine for my other books (with less mp3s)
