    I have a particular collection of albums that has reached volume 12 now. iTunes wants to sort the albums totally wrong, thinking that the order goes 1, 10, 11, 12, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Why can't iTunes count from 1 to 12?

    Change the tags to 01, 02, 03--it will then sort them properly. I have alot of pics that would get all mixed when I numbered them with single digits on my PC and my Mac. If your collection pushes into the triple digits you'll have to go back and add another zero in front. If you think this is likely, start doing it now so it's less work later.

    If you still want to display them with 1, 2, 3 etc. rather than 01, 02, 03, you could simply change the album sorting name field rather than the displayed album name.
