Help Playback order with multiple disc albums

Hey people! I'm new to the forum

I need some help with my (new ) Sony NWZ-S545. I've got multiple albums that have various discs which are tagged just fine (iTunes, MM & Songbird recognise they're different discs but same album), but whenever I transfer them to my Walkman, playback order goes as follows:

1 - First song in disc one
2 - First song in disc two
3 - First song in disc three
4 - Second song in disc one
5 - Second song in disc two

... and so on.

I looked for a solution in the user's manual and in forums but to no success.

Anyone got the same issue? Stravinsky's really a mess right now for me...

I'd really appreciate any help here. Thanks a lot people!

Just re-number the tracks as 101, 102 for CD1, 201, 202 for CD2 etc.,

Yes, esantosh's suggestion is a good one and should work.

Another method to consider: use something like mp3tag http://www.mp3tag.de/en/ to set your tags and file names as such:
Artist: Joe Satriani
Album: Live In San Francisco [Disc1]
Track: Crystal Planet
Track Num: 3
etc, for whatever tags you wish to use

Then with mp3tag rename the files based on the tags as above so the result is:
Joe Satriani - Live In San Francisco [Disc1] - 03 - Crystal Planet.mp3

This is how I manage all my music, including multiple disc albums - I have never ever had a problem with any DAP playing music out of order going back 10+ years. Plus, by including the disc number in the filename, I am able to at a glance see what disc I am listening to.

hth,

Ok guys! I suppose that's what I'll have to do.

The funniest thing is I did have the tracks numbered that way waaay back, but oh well, I guess Mp3tag will help me out with it.

BTW, is this something that happens with all Sony Walkmans? Weird they don't take into consideration disc number. I didn't have this issue with an iPod nano.

Thanks so much people!!

Not sure man. Perhaps the Sony does not like the DiscNumber ID3 tag field. Like I said, I got no experience with that because my methodology removes the need for me to use that particular field.

Good luck man!

I understand. No biggy though, just curious.
