Default Track Numbers Out of Sequence (Database)

I noticed that when browsing (through database) a compilation album or audio book with 500 tracks, the track number sequence goes from 10 to 101...109 and back to 11(then 111 to 119 and so on). I added the track number to the beginning of each song and same problem. Is this a known issue? or is there a patch to fix it? No problems like this with the OF and it's very annoying when listening to an audio book. Thanks

Are the files named 10, 11, 12 etc. or 010, 011, 012? you might want to try to rename the files first and then check if it works.

Ok, just renamed all the files starting with 010 instead of just 10. Deleted the old directory, copied the updated album, same issue...

Since it's the database, you should be more concerned with the tags than the filenames.

The files are tagged by Numtrack-Artist-Album-Title. All the files have the track number in their tags (001-500). Right now, the only way to force the sequence is a playlist file in the album folder.

Are you absolutely sure youre talking about the tags embedded within the mp3 file itself, and not just talking about the filenames?

You have to put 001-500 in the TAGS of your Mp3s.
Why don't you just use folder browse? That's why I upgraded the player to rockbox!

Thank you all for your responses. I was able to fix the issue by modifying the formatting string in tagnavi.config to sort three digits instead of two. Now the track numbers show up from 001 to 100 in sequence without showing 100 after 10.

On the other hand, definitely, using file browser for audiobooks is much better since I can use bookmarks (can't do that in database),

Note: The mp3s were tagged with the 001-500 format, still the database only read 1,2...8,9,10,100,101.

i'm having the same issue with Rocbox as posted HERE

here is a screen shot of how everything is right now



my D2 reads and orders them just fine.

Update: i searched around and tried different things. the only way i could have my tracks in order is by the following:

-Highlight a list of tracks from an Album, then head to Tools/Auto-Numbering Wizard.. then be sure to check Save Total Counts of Tracks and Leading Zeros for Track Numbers

Next...

-Convert/Tag-Filename input code %track% %title%

Done!

though this is really unnecessary unless there is another way. if you say my Tags are messed up then whatever.

Update: being i'm new to Rockbox i forgot to enable the database. all is good now. Sorry
