I have just taken delivery of a 2021 Discovery Sport. All is fine apart from the media system playing my usb music in alphabetical order ignoring the track numbers at the beginning of each track name. The mp3 files were created as an iTunes library and it recognises album titles, artists and artwork fine but plays the songs in the wrong order. Please help if you can - it is driving me mad. Previous DS (3 years old ) played the usb with no problem.

Sounds like a tagging issue.

Try MP3 tag or Tag Scanner to edit them

I use a program called Tag and Rename with no problem. The track number is embedded in the mp3, not the name of the title. Not sure if it works on apple.

Thanks or the suggestion of the mp3tag app. That works very nicely. Unfortunately it told me that the tag information on all the mp3 files is fine with the correct track number present. Suggestions welcome as to why the car is not reading that!

What tagging format are you using? Or maybe iTunes has mesed things up. I never use it, vastly superiour software available

Not sure what the tagging format is but mp3tag said they were ID3v2.2 MPEG I Layer III if that helps. I just used itunes to create the folder structure with the mp3 files. The files on the stick have no residual indication of being created that way as far as I know. The really annoying thing is that my old DS had no problem with the same usb stick.

I assume your DS has the new PiviPro system? Have you tried looking on other LR or Jaguar forums for vehicles using the same system? Off the top of my head Defender, Evoque, iPace, etc.

So what folder structure are you using?

Artist / Album / tracks

Album Artist / Album / Tracks etc?

There's really no need to use iTunes to create a folder structure.

Just have them in folders in your music libary and send to or copy & paste to your USB

It was just a convenient method at the time. I would love to blame Apple for the problems but that does seem a little harsh given that it was working perfectly fine on the previous DS. Must be a Pivi Pro problem but I can't find any hints anywhere. I will try rebuilding the library of MP3 files another way and see if that helps.

Can you post a screen shot of the contents of the USB?

Also I assume it's formatted to FAT32 or NTFS?

Just try music - artist - album - tracks and see if that works.

Tried it but just the same. It will shuffle the order but nothing seems to make it play in correct track order.

So in the example above it ignores the numbers and plays '25 or 6 to 4' first ( or 'Along Comes a Woman' first)?

The name of the song even if it has a number in it has nothing to do with how songs are played. You have to set the "Track Number" with a dedicated program . Check the properties of each song and it will show you the embedded track number, at least on a PC. Screenshots from a PC program. Shows the Track numbers and a sub screen where you can change individual track numbers. You can also do bulk changes.

That has already been suggested.

I spend my life tagging and re-tagging

The last five tracks are tagged differently plus the genre is incorrect.

Dashnine, Yes it insists on playing 25 or 6 to 4 first even though it is track 17 on the album.
As previously suggested I used MP3Tag to inspect the tagging and it looks fine to me. Screen capture for the Chicago album is below.
