I've investigated table tblSongObject in MoodLogicDb, all albums start
with track zero.

Additionally, moodlogic has omitted some tracks. It seems to have been
intelligent and not made a record of a duplicate track from another
album (of which there are many). This shows up in the slimserver album
listing. First track has no number and track missing in the middle!

I guess there's not a lot that can be done about the missing track!

In every case I've seen so far (including three other databases that are not
mine), tracks seem to start at 1. Do you have any ID3 Tags in the tracks? Were
these applied before or after you profiled/activated the songs from Moodlogic?

I'm wondering if untagged songs might get track numbers from the profile, while
a tagged track might not. However, its a wild guess. You might have to go
after MoodLogic to dig up answers on that. I dont know if it would be a good
idea to start altering the data imported more than absolutely necessary.
However, that's not up to me anyway :)

not if you are using ONLY moodlogic. If you have an Music Folder set in server
settings, then SlimServer will read that too.
