Roon ignores track number prefix in files

the files in my album are correctly prefixed:

1-abc
2-def
3-ghi

etc.

but roon shows them (and plays them) in a scrambled order:

ghi
abc
def
etc.

how do i over-ride roon and force them to play in what i know to be the correct order.

Do they have track numbers as metadata?

Are these the file names? Did you set the track number file tag with a tag editor like mp3tag or similar tools?

thanks - i think i fixed this by manually updating the metadata to match the track numbers. i’ve never seen this before.

Excellent. Note that mp3tag can convert the prefix numbers in track filenames into track number tag metadata with just a few clicks. Very useful if you need to renumber whole albums.
