M3 HDD, Organizing Music, Playlists?

I have a question for those of you that use the internal HDD ("Music Collection") to play your music.

I have been using both a USB thumb drive (in the armrest) and the internal HDD to play my music. When using the thumb drive, the interface is easy. If I select an album the tracks are listed in the order that they should appear on the album. Also, there is an option to select any playlists that are saved on the drive.

However, when using the HDD, tracks are listed alphabetically, not in the order that they should appear on the album. Additionally, there is no option to use playlists to play tracks in the correct order.

So, my question is: How do you guys organize/save your music prior to importing so that your tracks are listed in the right order?

The files on my HD are indexed by album and track order.. so everything seems correct. Might just take a little bit for the system to index everything?

I have all of my ID3 tags correct for my files and by playing them through the USB port, the iDrive recognizes those tags and lists the songs correctly, but the HDD does not.

How are your tracks saved on your computer?

For example do you have track numbers at the beginning of the file names?

i.e. 01 - Song #1, 02 - Song #2 etc...?

Is that how you are getting it to work?

Mine are all saved with just the track name and with the correct number listing embedded in the ID3 tag.
