Alphabetic order within album

Post by akxss825 »

Starting with album/artist view in MMA, clicking on an album shows most songs in alphabetic order but not all, especially if I have just added a song to that album. It just puts it at the bottom of the list. Is this a known bug? Is there a way to sort? My issue has nothing to do with track #'s as I do not have any in the file. Thanks for any help.

Korrekte Darstellung von Alben in MMW 4.1.31.1919 AND MMAndroid 1.4.4.0952 Beta-Tester
MMW4: ein Album wird im Knoten "Album" erstellt, wenn die Felder "Album" UND "Album-Interpret" beschrieben sind.

Zur Anzeige in richtigen Reihenfolge sind auch die Felder "Disc#" und Track# zu erfassen - aber ACHTUNG: NUR MIT ZAHLEN!!!
Disc#1 = OK (1,2,3, ...)
Track#1 = OK (1,2,3,...,10,11,12 ...)
Disc#01 = NICHT OK
Disc#A = NICHT OK (für LP-Seite)
Track#01= NICHT OK - dies ist keine ZAHL, sondern "alphanumerisch"

Dateiname bei Alben: Titel - Interpret - Album.ext
Dateiname (kein Album): Titel - Interpret.ext

Dies ist wichtig für die Auflistung in MMAndroid, da ansonsten die Auflistung ALPHABETISCH erfolgt.
Für MMA2.x ist jedoch eine Korrektur vorgesehen.

Google-Translation:

Correct display of albums in MMW 4.1.31.1919 AND MMAndroid 1.4.4.0952 beta tester
MMW4: an album is created in the "Album" node if the fields "Album" AND "Album artist" are described.

The fields "Disc #" and Track # must also be entered in order to display them in the correct order - but ATTENTION: ONLY WITH NUMBERS !!!
Disc#1 = OK (1,2,3, ...)
Track#1 = OK (1,2,3, ..., 10,11,12 ...)
Disc#01 = NOT OK
Disc#A = NOT OK (for LP side)
Track#01 = NOT OK - this is not a NUMBER, but "alphanumeric"

File name for albums: Title - Artist - Album.ext
File name (no album): Title - Artist.ext

This is important for the listing in MMAndroid, otherwise the listing is ALPHABETICAL.
However, a correction is planned for MMA2.x.

MMA: unter Ansicht "Tracks" werden die Songs nach Dateinamen aufgelistet (ALPHABETISCH).
Verwenden Sie jetzt am Anfang des Dateinamen Sonderzeichen oder alphanumerische "Zahlen", dann haben Sie in MMA unter Ansicht "Tracks" das Durcheinand beisammen.

MMA: under view "Tracks" the songs are listed by file name (ALPHABETICAL).
If you now use special characters or alphanumeric "numbers" at the beginning of the file name, you will have the mess in MMA under "Tracks" view.

Meine USB-Kabel-Synchronisation: (Ich verwalte NUR Musik-Dateien: "Dateinamen")
My USB cable synchronization: (I ONLY manage music files: "Filenames" )

Will this also be corrected in MMA 2? Having different sort orders in MMW and MMA really makes it difficult to track down sync issues...

My problem has nothing to do with Track# as I don't have any in the file.
UPDATE 14/01/2022

Question 1) MMAndroid: use MMA 1.4.5.0960 Beta?
Question 2) MM5: use MediaMonkey 5.0.3 pre-release testing (build 2601 beta)?
Question 3) which synchronization method? (USB cable? WiFi?)
Question 4) MMAndroid: try Options> General... "Check for new/changed media"
Question 5) in MM5 - what columns do you sort by?
Question 6) in MM5 - how is the file name composed?
