Hi Alan

Right click at the top of any column in your iTunes library and choose Track Number from the list. Click at the top of this new column to sort it and after that click on the Album column. If you like you can then click on Artist, it will continue to hold the track order as well. Afterwards anything you import should follow this arrangement Track Number>Album>Artist. Make sure the little triangle on the right side of the track number column header is pointing up. In that direction the column is sorted in Ascending order (lowest to highest).

You must ensure that the track information has the correct track number for each song. In the Artists menu on the iPod, Artists are in aplhabetical order.. then Albums in A-Z order within those Artists.. then individual songs on the album are sorted by track number. To reposition songs, you need to change the track numbers in iTunes.

OK  - This helps. I'll get off and work thru this plan. If I get stuck I'll reach out to you. 

Also, how do I cancel the repeat function?

When you play music, a player appears at the bottom or lower-right corner of the screen. Tap the player to open Now Playing, then scroll up. You'll find  Shuffle and  Repeat buttons above Lyrics. The color of the buttons changes if you have shuffle or repeat turned on.

If repeat is on, the  Repeat button turns pink. You'll need to Tap it again if you want to turn it off
