  • Windows media player plays songs out-of-order

    Gets to be real annoying. If I play a cd from a hard drive, the player seems to choice any order instead of the order they were on the original CD. Anyone know how to fix this?

        even in the future nothing works
        There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov, Newsweek (21 January 1980)

          The least comfortable questions lead to the most important answers.

            When you rip a CD it will go to your hard drive in alphabetical order and Media Player will play it as it is on your HD. You need to add a number in front of the title "01 Song A", "02 Song B", etc. or you can get iTunes - it's free and easier to get along with.

              What on earth are you talking about? WMP is perfectly capable of ordering songs by track number, as is Windows Explorer. There's no need whatsoever to put track numbers in the file names, that info is automatically added when the song is ripped.

              I'd put my money on shuffle mode as well.

                  Not true, it depends on what version/release you have.

                    Do tell, then, what ancient version is incapable of doing that?

                      Hey Acid,

                      This was probably the most annoying thing i found about wmp, a lot of the albums i have (amusement parks on fire, sigur ross etc) have been recorded so that each song flows into the other (there might be a special name for this??) - so when i play the album i really dont want wmp to just pick a song out at random, followed by another.

                      Anyway, i just use winamp now, i much prefer it, for SO many rreasons. you can just right click a folder an select play in winamp an it will play in that order (as long as shuffle aint on) - it rules, you should make the switch! lol

                      Anyho, im new here by the way - so be nice!

                          You think anything Apple is complete **************** (possibly because of your conflict of interest). We should take you seriously this time why???

                          I agree with you, BTW.

                            no, itunes is great on a MAC. thats what i use on my mac's. i also think FCP is a lovely application. i dont think you know anything about me. funny however you want to take a poke yet are in agreement.

                            you do seem to forget run and have been running both platforms for decades now.
