Alphabetical vs. Cronological
Welcome to WPCentral!
Hey folks I'm new to the forum. I want to start by saying I love my wp7. The brainwashed masses can keep there iOS. Anyway lately I have had issues with my phone shuffling my playlists and albums. When I listen to music during my workouts its no biggy, but most of the time I listen to books. Its very difficult to pick up my phone while on the treadmill, and find the track I need. I'm not using the shuffle all function. I'm just selecting the album and every time the tracks are in a different order. I suspect its some setting on Zune, but I have not found it. This issue just started the end of last week, right before the NoDo rolled out. Thanks for the help folks.
This may be what is happening:
If I scroll through artists I can tap the "play" button to the left of the artist, and it will begin playing the first song, based on alphabetical order, in my collection by that artist.
If instead of playing directly from the artist list, I tap on the artist itself, it will take me to the albums from that artist I have in my collection in order of newest to oldest. From there I can either play the whole album in cronological order by tapping the "play" icon, or I can view the album songs in cronological order by tapping the album name.
Also, from the artist's album page, I can swipe to the left to view all songs by that artist in alphabetical order.
I am just guessing, but this may be what you are seeing.
I hope that helps!
