Unexpected track re-numbering

Post by Noddy » Mon Dec 02, 2019 8:35 am

I'm running MM 4.1.25 standard edition on Windows 10. I have done something which has caused MM to re-number my entire music collection and I don't know what it is I have done. Help please, as I would like to revert to Album track numbering. Thanks.

Maybe Tools > Scripts > Auto-Increment Track #s? Also Auto-Tag from Filename could be it.

If the filenames have the correct Track #'s you can use Tools > Auto-Tag from Filename to fix: https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... enames/4.0

Thanks for speedy response Lowlander. I suspect I must have inadvertently activated Auto-increment track #s, though how I haven't a clue. My music collection is on a satellite drive and all the track #s have been renumbered 1 to 4100 so sadly not having the correct track numbers rules out your Filename Auto-tag fix. The only solution I can see is the tedious chore of renumbering track by track through properties pane for each track. Unless some other thought occurs to you ? Cheers.

Are you saying that the Filenames were also altered? Auto-Increment Track #'s only affects the Tag, unless you have Auto-Organize enabled or use Auto-Organize Files.
