itunes has been annoying me since last night, it has jumbled up my songs, so they are in wrong order e.g 1 3 4 2. It has done this in the past & I have just clicked the artist or album heading a few times and it sorts itself out. This time it's not working. I'm sure there will be a simple solution someone knows that I don't. Can anyone help? Thanks.
You on a Mac? repair permission.
yeah a mac
Try sorting by Album By Artist, has saved me some headaches.
yeah clicking album by artist organises them correctly but then when I click date added ('cause I want my newest stuff at the top) it jumbles them up again.
are all the track files correctly labeled 01... 02... 03...
if not and you organize by date, they'll most likely sort alphabetical.
Prolly cuz they were added/imported in a different order than you want them in?
also instead of sorting by dated added column, i'd suggest you create a separate playlist to dump your tracks into, then sort that playlist by the small arrow column on the far left, which is sort in order as added.
i find that column more reliable than by "date added"... and its not available in the main Music listing so that why you add file to a playlist.
at least thats what i do. playlists and even better lots of smart playlists. i never view my music via the main Music listing. it sucks for sorting.
I just did a test, wen I import music into iTunes now I have to do it in reverse order, so 5 4 3 2 1 etc, I will settle for that. Thanks.
