This was an interesting situation. A compilation called Billboard Top 100 Hits for 19XX. When I originally tried SongKong with the matching boxes checked, it just wasn't able to handle over 90 songs in a folder without calling them random, which meant that the track numbering was random. By unchecking the matching boxes and ignoring the existing metadata we were able to get SongKong to do something really cool. It kept the same filename which satisfies most players, but it also designated the track number and title of the album from which the song was derived. So, now I still have track 001 for the Top 100 of 1956 (for example) in the filename, but I also have track #1, Heartbreak Hotel; Album Artist: Elvis Presley; Album: Heartbreak Hotel.

Kind of cool.

Thanks for your great reply. I use a Usenet server where someone had posted the top 100 songs for each year from 1956-2013. I don't know if this compiled by Billboard and presented as an album, or just a collection compiled from various albums (I think the latter). What was weird was SongKong tagged some of the songs, but had the track numbers as 0's and 1's. It did the same on a collection of 2014 Grammy nominees, and I couldn't edit them afterwards. I undid the changes to the Billboard, and I will attach the file you requested and you can see what occurred. Thanks for you interest in helping.


PS: I tried attaching the support file, but get an error from the Apache server that it can't process the request.
I just started using SongKong and was looking forward to great results. I am disappointed at this point. There have been folders where it did not fix a single song, all of the songs became track 0 or 1, or several track 1's, 2's 3,'s, etc. when the original songs were sequentially numbered from 1-101. Considering this was all of the Billboard 100's from 1956-2013, it really screwed up approximately 5800 songs. I've had to manually correct some songs. It is worrisome that I have to check each folder after using this "automatic" song fixer, especially since I have over 40,000 songs in the collection.
I am having the exact same problem. I just purchased SongKong and it doesn't appear to work.
