    Odd Media Player Behavior (Titles & Tracks)

    Advertisement



    I am having this odd little problem with only ONE double-cd addition to my media file collection. All of my other CD rips have been fine. (just for the sake of full disclosure, the CD in question is Yngwie Malmsteen - Double Live)

    I will try to describe this as best I can:

    The Media Player Album View looks like this:

    Double Live (Disc 1)

    But when you click on it to view the tracks, it looks like this:

    Double Live (Disc 2)

    01 Gates of Babylon*
    01 My Resurrection
    02 Alone In Paradise*
    02 Facing The Animal
    03 Pictures of Home*
    03 Rising Force

    And so on,and so on...


    The tracks with asterisks are actually supposed to be on Disc 2. The tracks without the asterisk are Disc 1 tracks and are supposed to be there.

    The album view for Disc 2 is as it should be. It is only Disc 1 that I'm seeing this trouble with. And only on THIS particular CD. All of the many other songs and albums I've ripped are as they should be, as well.

    I am very careful with my album & track titling in iTunes and I make absolute certain that the distinctions between Disc 1 and Disc 2 are very clear. I've even tried re-ripping them, and it still happens.

    I am at a loss to understand this.

    Has anybody else seen it happen?



    ****

    Addition: I have ripped several "box set" CD collections consisting of 4, even 5 CD's, and everything has worked fine. It's just with this one Yngwie double CD album I'm having trouble with.

    Have you checked the file properties in each individual file between disc 1 and 2 and seen any off corrolation that would lead the media player to think that it would be 1 cd set?

    No, but what I'm going to do when I get home is to try ripping them in something other than iTunes, and 100% title them myself and see if the same thing happens.

    I was certain I checked everything.

    I'll report my findings later tonight.

    Still no luck. I've tried 2 different ripping programs and I am at a complete loss to understand why the BlackBerry media player insists on running every track from both CD's into "Disc 1" while leaving "Disc 2" as it should be.

    I just don't get it.

    Problem Solved!!!

    I changed my album-naming convention from this:

    Double Live (Disc 1)
    Double Live (Disc 2)

    to:

    Double Live - Disc 1
    Double Live - Disc 2

    and it seems to have solved the problem.

    But I wonder why none of my other multi-cd's were affected the same way?
