When I sync with HTC Sync the music albums I have chosen copy onto the SD card ok. But when I come to play them they are now in alphabetical order and not track order. Is it me? It also happens when I copy and paste to the SD card as an external memory device. Help Please!

The Desire Music App uses ID3 Tags to determine your track order, so I'm guessing your albums does not have the track # listed, so it defaults to alphabetical order based on their file names. To check this, use a Music tag editor like Tag & Rename on your PC (I use Media Monkey since it's compatible with my Cowon S9). Load up your album and see if the Track # column is used. If it's empty, then you will have to edit each song with the correct track number.

If your albums DOES have the track numbers, then I don't no why they aren't playing in the correct order unless you have it in shuffle mode order??

I use PowerAmp rather than the default music player which is more like WinAmp (Incidentally WinAmp is now available for Android) -- as it's a lot better -- you can edit the ID3 tags with it and even make the song you're listen as your default ring tone Smiley

By the way, since you said you are with 3 Network... which I am too --- do you have a My3 icon on your Desire so you can easily check your usage etc.? I don't, and I never noticed one before I rooted/flashed a custom ROM on it.

MixZing lite and WinAmp will solve your problem. The second solution will whip the llama's @$$ too

I have a my3 bookmark to check usage.
MixZing has picked up the correct album order without me doing anything else. I'll give it a try to see how it goes for a while.
