MP3 naming conventions - with particular reference to itunes

As most of you know, I am new to itunes.

I have downloaded a CD off the internet (MODS, this is a perfectly legal download of a mates demo CD) which was already encoded into MP3.

I have tried putting the folder into itunes, but everytime I do it, it puts the tracks in the wrong order (and it is nothing to do with clicking the arrows above the tracks).

I have tried everything (renaming individual tracks etc) and nothing makes any difference.

The Title is named just as the title, and in the details it gives the track number.

Any advice?

iTunes uses the "track number" field in the ID3 tags (do "get info" in iTunes). Without that, it has no idea what order the tracks should be in as it completely ignores the filename and considers the "title" field to be plain text.

I did think about that, so i imported the files and then made sure the track number was filled in.

It made no difference.

So I then made sure the track number was filled in before importing them - but it still made no difference!
