incorrect numbering order

Very casual user but I have the 103 UK "Now That's What I Call Music" albums on a micro sd in my phone. The problem is in Poweramp album view it starts at 1 then 10 until 19 then 2 and then 20 until 29 then shows 3 and 30 until 39 etc. How can I set it up that Poweramp shows them in correct numerical order? ie 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20 instead of 1,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19, 02, 20, 21, 22 etc

Sorry for the long winded explanation as I don't know how to phrase it any better. It's not a major problem of course but it's something that's always bugged me.

 

:edit: Did a bit of searching and I think I have it sussed! Add a preceding 0 to the first ten albums tag. I had the folders as 02,03 but it doesn't seem to go by this.

Correct, that is the solution.

PA uses a strict ASCII sorting process, so to make longer prefixes work you need to pad shorter numbers out with leading zeros (giving you 001, 002, 010, 020, 100, 110, etc)
