Hard to explain but I'll give it a go:
I import all my old CDs into intunes and I number them 1-540 etc.

I put the CD in the comments field.
I sort the comments field everything is great.
Then I make a master playlist with all songs in it.

I then click in master playlist that far left field, and that sorts the track numbers perfectly, 1 or 20, 2 of 20 etc.
This has been working great for first 540 CDs and then suddently the track nubmer sorting is not right.

When I sort for comments 517 is not between 516 and 518 as it should be but at the bottom of the pile under 540. thanks

why are you numbering the cds? Or putting the cd title in the comment field?

iTunes should be pulling all the cd data from a database. If it's not, or your cd is too rare to be listed in the database (local acts, bootleg) you can go to... where'd they move "look up in gracenote/cddb"? I can't find it in this newest itunes. Anyway.

why make a master playlist when it sounds like everything in your library is in the playlist?

thanks Andi, think I solved it by doing a manual drag it, which I forgot to note.... well report back if issue remains.
