    Mp3 File Organizer

    Is there any way of organizing mp3 files in a playlist order without prefixing with a number.

    01 my song.mp3
    02 a sample song.mp3
    03 eddies song.mp3

    When these files are placed in a folder without the leading numbers the order is changed to:-

    a sample song.mp3
    eddies song.mp3
    my song.mp3

    I want to list the files in a disciplined order according to my criteria. The purpose is to burn the tracks in my order.

    If the objective is to burn the tracks in a particular order, you should be able to accomplish this within your "burning" program. I just took a quick look at Nero and it will record the tracks in the same order you drag them to the selection box. Nero does not re-order the tracks in alphabetical order.

    If you're trying to custom sort your mp3 tracks in an explorer window, you can do the following:
    1. <LI>Open the folder that has the music files
      <LI>From the menu, click View and then Details
      <LI>If your mp3 files were tagged properly, you should be able to click the column headings to sort your list.
    I tried this and was able to sort my tracks by file name, album title, file size, duration (track time), track number, artist and year. Click a column heading once to sort by that column (ascending order); click the same heading a second time to sort by that same column (descending order).

    Thanks Tricky

    I tried your suggestion but to no avail, I only have Version 6.6 (fully updated) This new feature must be for version 7.

    I found http://ww2.nero.com/nero6/enu/FAQs_Product...M_Audio.html#11 hope that link works, if not it is question 11 at that url. I have searched the forums and downloaded various shareware/freeware programs these merely placed the digits in front of the file that I have labouriously removed. My project is for 26 folders each with between 10 to 20 files.

    You might want to ask your question here: CDRLabs - Nero Forum where a couple of Ahead/Nero representatives participate in the discussions. There is also a great group of knowledgeable people who participate there who are Nero and burning aficionados. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
