So I have searched and found some suggestions on this but nothing works.
EDIT: I tagged as iPod Classic because that is what is plugged into my Windows PC as I'm trying to sort this songs are in a playlist on the iPod. So I'm trying to sort within the device itself as it's plugged in to iTunes.
I'm in iTunes and I have the songs listed, I imported them to iTunes from a CD I own. For simplicity it's like this:
A Song (in Song Info it is Track 1 of 3) Middle Song (in Song Info it is Track 2 of 3) Ze Last Song (in Song Info it is Track 3 of 3)
They appeared in iTunes out-of-order. Sorting on the "Name" column sorted them in a completely random way.
So I prefixed them as such, figuring Arabic numerals are a little more universally accepted:
001-A Song (in Song Info it is Track 1 of 3) 002-Middle Song (in Song Info it is Track 2 of 3) 003-Ze Last Song (in Song Info it is Track 3 of 3)
And--(and I'm not kidding here)--when I sort by clicking the Sort arrow on the "Name" column--it sorts 002, 001,003. Reverse the sort and--yes, still not kidding, it's 001, 003, 002.
This is actually not just 3 songs, it's all 46 from Hamilton, and I've painstakingly dragged them to the right order looking at the CD and iTunes STILL won't sort them properly--the Track#'s are correct and I named them with number-prefixes (no leading spaces or typos) and... ... iTunes is just insane.
I give up Apple. Can I just play my music in the order it was meant to play? How can I do this please?
