    I have a playlist of an opera, 51 songs, and I accidentally hit one of the top bars.

    Now it's all messed up. I can't get it into the order as it was on the original CDs (actually there were 3 CDs).

    How do I get the tracks into the order they orginally were?

    No clicking on the title bars helps, it just changes the way it is all messed up.

    Cmd click the bar and add track number. One that's done click track and it'll order eerything 1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,3,3,3,3 etc and look really messed up. Now clock album and it should pull everything back to how it should be.

    Solution found.

    Command J: add a column for disc number. Click on the header of the column. Orders all tracks as they were imported (none of the other columns would do that for music imported from 3 discs).

    Actually, the track number thing doesn't work when the music is imported from several CDs.

    One needs to add a "disc number" column.

    But thanks for posting.
