Walkman app playing order

Hi, quick question:

I uploaded several albums to my phone with Sony's Media Go application for Windows. However, when I play the songs in the album the order isn't according to the track ID. Obviously shuffle is off, but I'd prefer if I had an option to sort the album.


Does anyone have an idea how best to deal with this? Thanks in advance.

The only way I can think of would be rather time consuming. Essentially creating a playlist by adding the tracks to the playlist in the order you want them to play then playing it without shuffle.

Re: Walkman app playing order

Confused? I have uploaded 39 albums so far via media go and every one plays in the correct order.

Where are you storing the albums internal memory or SD card?

That's a bit too time-consuming, but certainly an idea!

I don't understand why it's happening. I store my music on a micro SD card. The albums are sorted correctly within Media Go so it isn't as if it's copied the order which is applied there either.

Re: Walkman app playing order

When you view an album in the walkman app I take it the tracks are out of order. If you use "file commander" and find the album in Sdcard1 > Music > Album name  do all the tracks have their ID number before the titles.  On mine they are:

01 - track title,

02 - track title etc.

for CD's ripped with windows media player or iTunes purchased alums they are:

01 track title

02 track title etc

Re: Walkman app playing order

Hi i know this is an old thread but ive been having the same problem.

I seem to have sorted it.

It seems that when i check the file proerties on my computer desktop and select details There is a # which is the track number this has to be set to the track number you want for each individual track it will take a long time but it seems this is the only option its a shame sony cannot bring in track numbers by selecting a track info import or something similar

hope this helps
