Import Songs into iTunes Playlist in Correct Order
Authored by: Baby Bloc on Jan 14, '11 11:19:39PM
This worked pretty well for me. I did change the script to make it wait longer between imports. Just changed the "delay 2" to "delay 6." And the "delay 1" to delay 6."

I think iTunes is trying to import stuff alphabetically, but sometimes gets messed up when tracks take too long to start (long tracks, etc) and it gets one out of order once in a while. (This happens to me when I manually click on tracks to import them "in order." When I do it too fast, iTunes can't always keep up and puts a shorter one out of order before a longer one.)

So, I changed the script to add that longer wait, and then I saved it as an Application (that was important), and now I can drop folders from the finder into the application icon wherever I put it. It works pretty good. Thanks for that, it's bugged me for a long time.

I'm not sure if the "delay 6" will work with all tracks. I may have to mess with it if I'm doing some albums with really long and short tracks.
