    So I downloaded some albums from my laptop onto my Droids SD card yesterday and finally got around to playing some of the albums today. I discovered that the music app plays the songs on an album in alphabetical order rather than in album order! How annoying. I want to listen to the album straight through. I can't find a way (other than perhaps using playlists) to play them in proper order. Maybe I need to use a different app for playing music?

    Thanks - Jim

    I guess the Droid doesn't read ID3 tags? but then it definitely reads artist, title, album so maybe it only reads it selectively? I guess the only way around this for now is to rename the files with 1-track1.mp3, 2-track2.mp3, etc

    Mine plays songs in the right album order. Its probably something you are missing in the ID3 tag.

    Mine are also listed in order. It must be using track numbers from the ID3 tags. My files contain both ID3v2.3 and ID3v1.1 tags.
