"Sequel" albums appear after initial albums??

    Hi all, hope you can help me. I listen to a fair amount of film soundtracks,
    and have WMP11 organised in the Icon View format (my favourite). Anyway, it
    insists on putting a "second" album after the first, so, for example,
    "Spider-Man 2" will appear before "Spider-Man", even though the names are
    typed the same way, there's no hidden spaces or characters or anything like
    that. Album Artist is the same too. It happens in all views, so in the List
    View, Spider-Man 2 is higher up than Spider-Man - but they're both still
    before Star Wars!

    It's confusing that WMP alphabetises them to a point, but not the sequels

    FYI: it does it with Use Your Illusion II by Guns n' Roses, as well. Puts it
    before Use Your Illusion.

    I hope I explained that properly. Can anyone help?

    Thanks for the reply, but unfortunately renaming the files manually as you
    suggested doesn't work either :(. I've just noticed I have 1 set of albums
    that are organised correctly. I've uploaded a screencap of my library to
    ImageShack so you can see for yourself, just for clearer explanation:

    As you can see, the Silent Hill albums are correct (Silent Hill/2/3/4 etc),
    but the Spider-Man's aren't (2/3/Spider-Man)... I don't get it, lol. I've
    even tried copying and pasting the "space" from the phrase "Silent Hill" and
    using it on the Spider-Man albums (in case it's a different kind of 'space'
    or something) but no luck...
