    Two Questions

    Hi How do I reset the order of file names so that they are named by album title rather than artist? This is especially important where the file name given by dbpoweramp is "various". This is not very useful (to me).

    Second, some but not all of the folders show the files in reverse order. How do I fix that?

    Thx

    You can change the naming, try:

    [album]/[track] - [title]

    about the track order, the tracks are written 1, 2, 3 they will be sorted in this order unless you click the title to sort in reverse.

    So, you are saying that I inadvertently caused the reverse order? Pls let me know how I did this, so I don't repeat the error. Thx

    You would click 'Set' next to Naming:

    https://www.dbpoweramp.com/Help/dMCOSX/CDhelp.htm

    And paste that value into the main naming box.

    Thanks. I read the link. Not really helpful for me.
    When I press set, it gives me a window with a long logic chain, but it is not at all clear what I need to move where and into which brackets to get the desired result of files listed album and avoiding various as the name in Finder (I use a Mac). Could you clarify?

    Re: Two Questions

    are you asking about the folder/file names (seen in browsing a directory) or in some sort of music player (that is showing things based on the metadata (tags)? If files/folder, what would you like the names to look like. Let me know and I'll take a stab at the code you need for that. For example, this is my naming string, and tracks are named in number order, with albums listed under artists, except for compliations (various artists) with albums listed there. (note if you use a Mac, the backslashes below need to change to forward slashes). This code also automatically deals with multidisk.

    [MAXLENGTH]240,[IFCOMP]Compilations\[album][IFMULTI]\Disc [disc][]\[track] - [title] - [artist][][IF!COMP][IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],[artist][]\[album][IFMULTI]\Disc [disc][]\[track] - [title][][]

    You would replace that whole naming string with the one provided above.
