    Hi all, I have seen a whole bunch of threads on this topic, but none of them address my exact issue. Using a Galaxy S2 with Android 4.0.4.

    Basically, on my SD card, I have a folder called MP3's with all of my music in it. The albums are all in subfolders (ie, MP3's\Snoop-Doggystyle), while the random songs that aren't part of a full album are all just dumped into the root MP3's folder.

    I have updated the ID3 tags so that the random songs have no album information on them at all.

    So, apparently Android just lumped them into an album it calls MP3's. That's fine, but when I go into that album, the songs are displayed in a really weird order. They appear to be sorted by Artist, but starting with Bob Marley, then Bon Jovi, then Bush, going all the way through Zwan, then after Zwan it starts at the beginning of the alphabet and shows AC/DC through Bob Dylan.

    Any idea why it would be doing that?

    You can do folder view in PowerAmp, which should let you see them whatever way you prefer.
