PCM Jukebox

I've copied a large number of albums to the Jukebox but can't find a way to get them to play in the original order. They default to alphabetical, which completely ruins the experience.
 
Have I missed a setting somewhere?
 
The tracks have been copied from my PC hard drive (via USB) as MP3 files.
 
Thanks,
David

I don't think you have missed anything, other than the Jukebox uses alphabetical order, just as your computer would probably do, as its indexing protocol.
 
I have >2,000 songs on mine and have set it to shuffle all the songs so I get a rich variety of music, but that's just my personal preference which also saves me from wanting to select specific songs/artists/albums whilst driving.

Similar experience as the OP - I gave up using the Jukebox as it was way too restrictive for my liking. Another example of good potential tech with a poor user experience rendering it practically useless.

I too gave up on the jukebox, I listen to classical music loaded and I want to hear a complete performance of a work which might be in 4 movements in order. Copying just one CD was fine but copying several (as MP3 or WAV files) resulted in several tracks refusing to play at all.
