Hi, I use Samsung TV UE45ES6100 (SW:001031) with AllShare (
and its not possible to sort the Audio Files as the Track List is - sorting is allway alphabetic. (or Date, or Filesize..)
So you never can hear the CD with sort on Track Number like it is recorded!!
Is there any solution or alternative?
thx in advance

For years the old solution was to add this to the name.

Alternate solution to playing albums in track order
by SD_Ted / February 13, 2013 2:28 PM PST

Still not ideal, but the Samsung Smart TV does play PLAYLISTS in order, so you could create a playlist for each album. Could be a real hassle if you have hundreds of albums (as I do) and therefore hundreds of PLAYLISTs.

That's why there is software to do that renaming.

It's a very old problem dating back over a few decades. Yes, MP3 has been around since before 1995 and very quickly folk figured out the file names and such were a problem.

As this is a TV and not a PC, you see the limitations of a not so smart tv.

Hi - thx for your post.
But this does only work, if you delete the "titel" in the MP3 tag of the MP3 file. :-((
So you have to modify every MP3 file of hunderts of CD ripps - thats not possible...

The hint you given, is also the official statement of the samsung support...

Possible. Google this.

MP3 File Renamer. There are dozens of software titles to ease this issue. The Smart TV has only been around a few years and I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings by writing they are peddling as hard as they can to create a new system.

It's not like they were on a PC.

It works!

Yea - it works!! :-))
with the tool Mp3tag you can format the "title" field with "track Nr." and "title" -
and so you have the right sorting in Allshare!
thx to all!!!

They didn't put that in there for Samsung. A very old problem.
