As noted in my sig, I'm using CACkO 1.23 on my C860. Does anybody know of an application which will preserve the order of play of an album's of MP3 files? Example, I rip the Mediaeval Baebes' album Mirabilis to MP3s, they show up in my Xandros Linux machine's AmaroK installation as "01 - Star of the Sea", "02 - Trovommi Amor", etc.; but when I transfer the files to a CF card and play them in Music Player, they come up in alphabetical order by title ... "All for Love of One.mp3", "Away.mp3", and so forth. I'd like them to play in album order. Suggestions?

I'm not really used to writing scripts this way yet, where do I do this? In konsole? And do I have to do this again every time I change the music on my CF card, or is it once for all?

Trying to write this in Konsole, I get:
CODE
$ #!/bin/sh
$ MUSIC=/mnt/cf/Documents/Music
$ cd MUSIC
-bash: cd: MUSIC: No such file or directory

So maybe I should write
CODE
cd Music
instead?

... And while I'm at it, what do I use for a { key?

I'll try to answer the keyboard question first.
This is for a SL-C3100 running Cacko 1.23
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To get the [`] character in cacko, press [Shift]+[-]
To get "{" press [Fn] + [o] (that's 'o' not zero)
To get "}" press [Fn] + [p]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
About the songs..
Try renaming the song from
"01 - Star of the Sea"
to
"01Star of the Sea"
or
"01-Star of the Sea"
or
"01_Star of the Sea"

In karaoke databases the "space dash space" ( - ) designates a "break" in the filename, so you can use a database program with them to sort them by 3 methods:
Example:

SC8146-12 - Charlie Daniels Band - Uneasy Rider

"SC8146-12" represents the disc# & track# (Sound Choice 8146, track 12)

"Charlie Daniels Band" represents the artist

"Uneasy Rider" represents the title

You can sort by disc, by artist, or by title.

Thanks, Jon, I'll see whether that works ... if not one, then the other.

Well, the script didn't work. huh.gif entered it in Konsole substituting "cf" for "card", since the cf is where I keep the music; got no indication of any mistakes; closed Konsole and opened Music Player, songs still in alphabetical order. Rebooted, songs still in alphabetical order. Unmounted and reinserted cf card, still in alpha order. Poop. Will try renaming files.
