iTunes not sorting correctly


Recommended Posts

I purchased this album on iTunes Store.  The music downloaded ok, but as you can see in the screenshot, the first song of the second disk is listed last.  The finder has the files in the correct order, but not in iTunes.  I removed the file number and restored it.  I removed the album name and restored it.  Neither trick worked.  Any suggestions?

Happy you got it working, so many things such as this and missing artwork strange to figure out. In most cases it is a simple fix like this but finding that fix is so time consuming. We shouldn’t have to spend all this time correcting these error. I long for the days when Steve Jobs used to say “It just works”.

I highlighted all the songs, in songs view, then get info .  I deleted the album name and went back to the songs info and rewrote the album name.  That worked.  Thank you for working on this with me.

This sounds to me like there was a misspelling in that tracks' album name. I've had an inadvertent space at the end of an entry that did the same thing.

Yet, when I looked at the album name for all songs, it did not say "mixed" as usual in the app.

I've had the first tracks of an album dissociate from the rest. I could usually fix it by editing the dissociated track together with the rest and adding a character at the end of the album title. Then if all comes together re-edit to remove the character. If this does not work look at 'Get info' and the 'sorting'  property; there may be some inconsistency there you need to correct.
