I posted the original comment here, and it is clear this is still an issue. Workarounds should not be necessary, because the intended logic of sorting files just by quality escapes me. This is one of those "features" people sitting around a table somewhere thought would be helpful, but actually -- few people think this way about files in folders.
The issue really is why file type or quality trumps internal track numbers. Makes no sense. Over time, I have solved this **almost** always by being thorough about editing the tags. Generally, I 1) order the track numbers in integers only, like "3", no "3/12". 2) Get rid of the disc number entirely or make sure it is "1/1". 3) Delete years. 4) Delete double listings of artists or album artists. 5) Sometimes, when a mixed playlist, use :"Various Artists" for album artist, or when not, make sure the album artist is listed the same way throughout.
Once in awhile, rarely, I just convert the mp3 to a flac, after giving up using the other methods.
Hello, Bluesound, you have a good program here, pay attention to this strange anomaly.
