I am reripping my operas. I want them to appear as one album, rather than 4 discs. I use identical artist/album names, so all the files are in one folder. The mp3 tags have the disc numbers (1/4, 2/4,...) and the tracks. This does not seem to work. I end up with several selections in slimserver.

I then changed all the disc numbers to 1/4 and changed the track numbers to be consecutive. But my slimserver still does not play them in track order.

If I browse on its web page, I get for example:

Why aren't they in track order?

If I go to New Music, the albums tracks seem to be in alphabetical order rather than track order. Can this be changed?

Most likely either your tags aren't the way you want, or you've neglected to do a full clear and rescan. One other thing that sometimes helps is to use a leading zero on single-digit track numbers (01, 02, ..., 09).

I'd say to first do a full clear and rescan, and if that doesn't fix things, check out your tags and correct them in a good tagging program like mp3tag or Tag&Rename.

You might try eliminating the disc number altogether, and check each track tag to make sure a disc number is not there. The leading zeroes (as suggested) is a good idea, as well. Sometimes when I change tags, I have to delete the cache file to force a full, clean rescan in order for changes to show up.
