Nero changes file names during drag process

vbimport

#1

I’m using nero version 6.6.0.15, and over the last few months have found it a beautiful program, as many bugs from previous versions are all gone.

However there is a new thing that bugs the hell out of me. Just as I’am dragging my audio files from the source window, into the Audio CD compilation window, Nero either cuts off the first portion of the name, or just totally resorts my files.

My files look like this in the source window:

1980 - B’52’s - Rock-Lobster.wav
1981 - Rupert Hine - Misplaced love.wav
1982 - The Motels - Only the lonely.wav
1983 - Men without Hats - The safety dance.wav
1984 - Howard Jones - Really like to know you well.wav

Once dragged across, they now look like this.

B’52’s - Rock-Lobster.wav
Howard Jones - Really like to know you well.wav
Men without Hats - The safety dance.wav
Rupert Hine - Misplaced love.wav
The Motels - Only the lonely.wav

It’s taken the year part of the title away, and has automatically resorted them in alpha order.

I purposely place a year or a number infront of the song title, so I can do bulk drags, rather then track by track drags.

Here’s another example.

01 - 10cc - The things we do for love.wav
02 - Status Que - Whatever you want.wav
03 - T-Rex - Get it on.wav
04 - Asia - heat of the moment.wav
05 - Led Zepplin - Stairway to heaven.wav
06 - Eric Clapton - After Midnight.wav

After doing a bulk drag to the compilation window, they now look like this.

10cc - The things we do for love.wav
Asia - heat of the moment.wav
Eric Clapton - After Midnight.wav
Led Zepplin - Stairway to heaven.wav
Status Que - Whatever you want.wav
T-Rex - Get it on.wav

Again, the track numbers in the file names have been removed, and nero has sorted them in alpha order.

Anyone know how to switch (what-ever this is) off?

Well that’s pretty crappy isn’t it. I can’t see any settings in Nero to prevent this happening.
I never use Nero for audio/mp3 CDs, I’m a Roxio fan for this function but I have found a good free alternative which is Burrrn ( http://www.burrrn.net/ ). It will allocate the track #s in the sequence the tracks were added, losing the part of the file name before the “-”. Roxio works in a similar way.
