How do I get WMP(windows media player) to play CDs that have been ripped to the PC sequentually, rather than random order?


I have expanded the WMP window and found the "shuffle" button and have that off but makes no difference?


I have googled the issue but not found a solution as yet.


OS: Windows 10 all latest updates installed.


Thank You.

That's really odd ... I use WMP to both rip and play my music.  I typically select "Artist" and all are then grouped by band name, artist etc.


Selecting any of them starts playing the CD tracks in correct, original recorded order and then carries on to next album.


Can you post picture of the screen you get?  Maybe tell what version of WMP you are using?


Win 10 comes with Groove music player, and essentially does the same thing when playing back ripped CDs.

TY for your reply rickles. I posted in another forum on PC issues here in NZ and got a clue to an idea that works.


I open WMP, and then a playlist, sort the playlist by "album" or "title" and then play the first track in the playlist


The rest of the tracks follow sequentually.
