I edited the metadata in Winamp as well as the file properties in Windows to reflect the right # but the songs still appear in the wrong order in my Winamp Media Library -- they appear first, above the rest of the album's tracks (all correctly numbered). More importantly, this incorrect order appears when I copy the album to two different MP3 players (iPod and Creative Zen).

This glitch only occurred for about 10% of the albums I digitized but it's still annoying and I haven't found a solution... other than re-ripping those albums, which are currently sitting in storage in Canada.

Help would be much appreciated.

I am running Winamp Pro 5.623 and MP3 Encoder v1.36 on a Windows 7 Pro SP1 64-bit.
My first thought is to look at the 'Disc' tag on all the tracks in each album. My guess is that on those that didn't have track numbers, the disc tag was empty too. If the disc tag is empty on those and all the rest of the tracks have 'Disc'=1 or 1/1 (or any other value) then those with blank disc tags will be listed first no matter what the track numbers are.
