Just got v8 last night.
I am a big USB music listener. I just noticed that now in the "by folder" view, when I click into a folder it sorts the tracks by title, and not file name like it did previously.
Why would they change this? Now I cannot listen to the album starting with track 1 till the end? I want to listen to the album like it was created by the artist, like as if I was listening
to the CD. I could understand if they changed the sorting by track #, but Title?????
v7.1 was not great, but at least I could listen one album at a time through the "by folder" option and know it would play the tracks in the right order. Now I can't even do that?
Some background on how I organize my music:
001 - Album 1
***01 - Track 1
***02 - Track 2
002 - Album 2
003 - Album 3
I like to listen to all of the albums based on my numbering scheme. I start at 001 - Album 1, listen to each track and then start the next folder 002 - Album 2. I do not skip folders, I do not skip tracks, I do not randomize
my listening. I would have loved if v7.1 immediately went to the next folder in line and play the first track in there once I completed the previous album, but I was OK manually selecting the next folder/album to start playing it.
This seems like a huge step back for USB music. Very disappointed.
Sorry for venting.
I am hoping there is any easy work around for this.
The only option I see is to build a script to read every music file track number, and append that to the existing Title. i.e. Track # 2, Title: Title_of_second_song becomes Title: 02 - Title_of_second_song
Appreciate any help.
