    Hi,
    If you ever rip your Band of Brothers DVD Collection into DVDRips, and stack them you will encounter a problem where CD10 is played as CD2. It appears that Mediaportal reads CD10 as CD 1 part 2. Y2K bug... ;)
    But anyway, to bypass this just rename CD 10 to CD91 that way all the episodes will be played in correct order.

    Y2K bug? How? If I get what you're saying, the problem is that the files are read alphabetically, letter by letter. 1 comes before 2, regardless of what character follows. Maybe MP should check for more numbers before ordering and stacking, making 10 follow 9 instead of 1. Windows has this feature nowadays.

    Joke

    The Y2K bug was a joke. Of course its not related to the actual y2k..... Just meant that it´s a similar oversight....:D

    Hi,
    Have you also tried naming them 01 02....10 etc

    Often programs sort the numbers as you would sort something alphabetically.

    ie a, aa, b....
    1, 10, 2

    so you need to add that extra number to make it count them properly!
