Default Rockbox'd Clip Zip Playing songs in wrong Order

Hi, sorry I had a look at the manual but no joy, my Clip zip is taking mp3 albums that have worked fine on multiple devices over the last few years and listing the tracks in a random order.

Im positive the ID3 tags are fine because as I said the albums have never done this on any other device.

I just cannot figure out from the settings what Im doing wrong, its not alphabetical order its playing them in either. What do I need to change to get them to list and play in the order they come in on the cd not some random list the device decides to spit out??? Even the stock sansa firmware doesnt do this...

No its not that kind of problem, its like the player doesnt seem to read the ID3 tags like every other player Ive ever had these files in. For example I have an album called Rolling stone Magazine 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, Ive had this album for years and on every single device it has listed the songs from 1 to 500 as per their names, but on the Clip Zip Rockbox its listed like this:

Track 01
Track 02
Track 03
Track 04
Track 05
Track 06
Track 07
Track 08
Track 09
Track 10
Track 100
Track 101
Track 102

(Those are proper ID3 tagged song names there by the way, I just used Track X for convenience) It does the same thing in the 20's and the 30's all the way up to 500 aswell.

Other albums it just rearranges them into whatever order it feels like and then others it displays them perfectly, as I said these are albums that have worked perfectly on loads of devices over the years so I know its not them that are at fault, is there a "Playback Mode" in Rockbox that Im not seeing maybe?

Thanks for the help anyway.

I'm not sure I understand the issue.
Rockbox sorts files by Alphabetical/date/newest date/type order when using the files browser and sorts them by track number (in ID3tags) when using the database (tags navigation).

When you use the database, you only get songs sorted by ID3 track number if you select a particular artist/album/track. If you select "all tracks" at the artist or album level, those tracks are sorted by ID3 track title (alphabetical order)

Technically, that order is correct, since you zero padded to two digits. Someone asked about this in the forums recently. Turns out the database will correct for 1 digit worth of zero padding, but not two (since technically CDs can only have 99 tracks IIRC). It should be simple to fix though:

Okay thanks, Ill disregard that as a seperate issue seeing as I only have one or 2 albums with more than 100 dongs, the first issue I mention with it deciding to list things in random order is so infuriating though.

Whats the best MP3 tagger program? might just spend an evening cleaning up the whole collection and see if that makes a difference...

MP3tag is the best one

It features an "Autonumbering wizard".
