Default How are music tracks sorted?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm thinking they sort by alpha... and not by track #. Here's why...

I may not have all of my mp3's tagged with the actual song titles... but they're all tagged with track numbers (at least). By this I mean, Track1 is tagged as Track 01 so that when I open an album on my computer the tracks are listed:

Track1
Track2
Track3

Instead of:

Track1
Track10
Track11
Track2
Track3

See what I mean? So though the file name might actually be "Track1" it's tagged properly so the software knows how to sort it in the playlist.

On the Pearl, however, it seems to be ignoring the track tags and sorting by alpha. I say this because I uploaded some tunes and even though they were tagged properly (as explained above) they were sorted as such:

Track1
Track10
Track11
Track2
Track3

What's the deal? I'm pretty sure the Pearl is reading the id3 tags just fine as it has no problem displaying the artist name and album cover. It just seems to be ignoring the track numbering.

Thanks for the info!
