    playlist: song order issues

    Dear All,

    I have used this guide (GUIDE-Transfer-music-to-foobar2000-mobile-over-wi-fi-with-UPnP) and everything seems to work well. Indeed this is a fine piece of software.

    However I have one issue I have not been able to resolve. The order of the songs changes when the playlist is transferred to an iPhone.
    The following example may help.
    I have a playlist with a certain order on my PC foobar2000 v 1.3.2. The order of the song (considering the Artist/album of the first column) is Train, then Arcade fire, then Sylvan Esso. I own full albums of these artists.
    Now when I transfer this playlist on the iPhone, the order is changed. What I understand is that the order becomes alphabetical or, if there is a track number is follows that. When transferred to the phone the order then becomes: 1 Arcade Fire, 2 Sylvan Esso, 3 Train. But this is not clearly the order of the songs that I have in my playlist in the PC...

    Can I control this, without having to edit the playlist in the iPhone and without having to change the metadata on the original files in my PC?
    Any suggestions?

    I'm hitting this as well but I think this is because there is no playlist created on the mobile device, just a folder, is that right? This is a good feature, really easily allows content to be put on the mobile device but in order for it to be great I'd like to see the following:

    - after the download is done, create a local playlist with the order of the songs downloaded

    The order of the tracks does not matter, but if there was a playlist which had the order that would be perfect. mbussolo, would that work for you as well?
