Re: Tracks add out of order

Track's adding to the library out of disk order when ripped is caused by the speed of ripping the different sizes/lengths of songs on a multiple core computer. Windows will default send 1 song track to each of the cores so the shortest song finishing faster gets added before the longest song. I am wondering if this is the reason for them getting added out of order when just scanning the folders also. ?

Have the same issue with Win 8.1. The workaround I found here (When I add from a folder, I select the last song first, hold shift then select the first song, hit any of the three play options and they add fine. If I do it the other way I get missing tracks/out of order issues.) works fine, though. Thanks!

Just had this exact same problem-- Win 7 x64, mediamonkey golkd 4.0.7.1511. "Play now" for an album semi-randomly ordered the tracks. Running as admin fixed it.

Windows Explorer sends files to the application starting from the file you right click on to open them. This has always been my experience with a variety of applications like image editors, office applications and media software. So if you right click on the first of the selected files to open them it should open the first file in the application.

Just tested on Win7 x64, and Windows Media Player and Winamp both exhibit the same behavior as MediaMonkey when attempting to open multiple tracks from within Windows Explorer. i.e. they do not play in the order in which they are selected.

I just migrated from XP to Windows 7 64-bit and had a similar problem: tracks selected in Windows Explorer were played out of order in MediaMonkey. The problem went away when I used the right mouse button to run MediaMonkey as administrator. Not knowing if the program would always be run as administrator after that (for instance, when the program is closed and I select a song from Windows Explorer), I went into regedit and changed the MediaMonkey's permissions to "users" and checked "allow" for full control. The problem seems fixed, though it has not been all that long since I made the changes......

I did have this problem when I first started using MM. I noticed that when I opened up the each individuals tracks properties, some of them had a 1 present in the Disc # field. It doesn't make a lot of sense because the majority of my albums are ripped from CD's, but I did experience a good number that had that problem. I am sure you have already done this, but make sure that the applicable track properties match up identically for every track on the record.

Thanks for the feedback.

Re. the problem of tracks being added out of order:
As far as we're aware, this is a Windows problem that we're not able to work around. Try doing the same in Winamp and you should observe the same behavior. If MM has this problem but other mediaplayers on your system don't, please let us know.

Re. the problem of only 1 track being added if MM isn't running:
I cannot reproduce this. Anyone else observing this problem?

Same problem here.

Furthermore: When you highlight the tracks in folder view and click on "Play in MediaMonkey" it only adds one title to the list when MM is not already started.

If it is already started, all the marked tracks are added. But not in the same order as they are shown in the folders view, nor vice versa, nor in the alphabetical order, or whatever. Seems to be randomly ...?

I don't think so as I use the details view. It's not a huge problem, but an inconvenience. I could also see somebody making a pretty big tagging mistake because of it if they didn't notice that the tracks were added out of order and then did an Auto-increment Track number operation.

I also cannot reproduce, but couldn't this be a side effect of

i.e. Do you click the 'Now Playing' node after the tracks are added?

So, is anyone having this problem. I can replicate 100% of the time. I have to have tracks currently in Now Playing, select new tracks in windows explorer and click on "Play Now" which should clear the Now Playing list and add those tracks in order. It clears the playlist, but adds the tracks in a random order. Another thing that happens is that "MediaMonkey" at the top of the program window flashes rapidly while the tracks are adding.
