The M5 DAP does not display tracks of albums in the correct order. The tracks are ordered alphabetically instead of by track numbers as stored in IDv3 tags.

Am I missing a setting here?

Dear friend,

Are you reading the album from the album category? Or file browser instead?
From album category-XXX album, the tracks in the album are ordered by track number if the tracks have correct track numbers.

Best regards

I have the same issue on my M3K.  After days I finally figured it out.  ID3V2 tags can be encoded in a few ways.  UTF-8, UTF-16, and ISO-8859-1.  The Fiio devices don't seem to be able to read UTF correctly and things get sorted alphabetically instead.  This is a PAIN to fix.  This should really be addressed with the firmware.

Dear friend,

Thanks for the feedback.

We will also report to the engineer about that.

Best regards

I too confirm this happens in my M5.
I have all tracks properly tagged (track number, disc number,...) and when I go to Category > Album, the tracks are listed alphabetically instead of being listed by track number.
Since I always listen to full albums it makes no use to me to have tracks inside "album" category sorted by name.
Please address this issue in the future, thanks.

I can confirm the problem for some of my albums, but not all.

But since titles with special characters in them (e.g. German umlauts ä/öü/...) have problems in Category view, I always use the folder browser anyway. Here all file names start with the track number, so they are displayed in the correct order here.

I found a workaround but the fix is not perfect.
If the tag is not saved in Unicode, FiiO will sort by track number. The issue then is that special characters such as è î ã and so on are not read and are replaced by chinese characters.

Perfect wouold be if FiiO could read UTC tags and display tracks by track number and with correct characters
