    In Album view (List display mode), the track tag is ignored in FLAC files. The tracks are displayed alphabetically. Even stranger, the list is in reverse alpha order.

    Anybody else have this problem?

    Yup same issue, but not the reverse order part. To solve I have named all the songs with a number first (01xxx.flac, 02xxx.flac) and then added the song title / album / artist to the metadata so it shows up as just the song name but plays in the correct order

    Renaming is a gross fix for a bug. I have over 10,000 songs, so it isn't an option, but no matter the quantity it's simply something WD needs to fix.

    Don't get me started on WD's inattention to music playback features/bugs....

    Agreed Hurricane. I had not ripped anything to FLAC untill I had my original live plus so was not a problem to name the songs that way as I went along, as well as adding all the metadata. If I already has a huge library on my drives prior to that I would have been very annoyed.
