Songs in multi-disc albums cannot be sorted correctly

In WP 8.1 Preview, when I copied a two-disc album to my phone, and tried to play the songs by album, the songs would go completely out of order.

For example, it was supposed to be sorted like this:

Disc 1 - Track 1
Disc 1 - Track 2
...
Disc 1 - Track n
Disc 2 - Track 1
Disc 2 - Track 2
...
Disc 2 - Track n

But in fact the Xbox Music app will sort the songs like this:
Disc 1 - Track 1
Disc 2 - Track 1
Disc 1 - Track 2
Disc 2 - Track 2
...

Obviously, the Xbox Music app completely ignored the tag "disc number" and only read the tag "track number". Would you please fix this issue in future version? Thank you!

        Use a program like TagScanner, the problem is the ID3 tags... I fixed my albums and they are played correctly.

        This is a duplicate of my idea. It has lesser votes but it has been labelled as 'Under Review'. Kindly transfer your votes to my idea.

        Can the moderators join both posts? I don't mind transferring the votes from my idea to this, as long as it's labelled 'Under Review'.

        Very frustrating. I can't use Xbox Music for my Pearl Jam bootlegs without having to create a play list for it. Come on guys, this is basic stuff. Plus PJ's from your back yard...do it for them & their fans.

        This is ridiculous. The MeduaLibrary API does not even has the Disc Number property. This way a developer can not even create an app with correct order.

        Aso if you put them to play, independent of how you do that or how many times you try, it's going to shuffle the musics inside the album. I couldn't find a way to PLAY one abum from track 1 to its end in the orrect order.

        This is the most important thing for me that is broken. Also, the Option to display track numbers in front of titles and maybe a fine line between the discs of a multiple disc compilation when adding a whole compilation at once would be a godsend.

        This has always bugged me on WP8! WP7 followed the correct ordering, but now I have to either create a playlist with the correct ordering, or have separate albums.
