Windows 7: One question about WMP12

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
One question about WMP12

This is the only thing that has been bothering me in WMP12 since day one (aside from not being able to convert my m4a files into mp3 when syncing to my mp3 player)

One question about WMP12-capture.jpg

This is a 2CD concert, one of many examples I chose. The tagging itself is perfect, the disks ripped were accurately put into separate folders (CD1 and CD2), but it seems that I just can't figure out if and how I can sort albums by disk number. The default sorting is always filename, i figured that much, which is okay, but WMP can't see that there's two disks as one album and just acts like there's only one folder and sorts the files like in the screenshot. I tried playing around the "Sort by" columns but couldn't really find anything useful.
Is there a change that I have missed something in WMP that could perhaps enable me to sort files by disk number as well?

I don't know if this would work with WMP12, but I saw someone in a DAP forum who tagged all there 2-CD sets with track numbers 101, 102, 103 for disc one, and 201, 202, 203, for disc two so it would show up as one album on their mp3 player. They altered the tags with mp3tag , as I recall.

Just checking if you have also tagged each particular song with the specific
album number?

That sorted the problem out for me.

No, I do not put the disk numbering into album titles because it already has the disk number in it's own tag... this way it'd just show the album as two, not one.

Have banged this thread in here as we don't seem to have a WMP section and to me MCE is different from WMP. Anyone found how to change the colour of the media player from the standard shades of blue? If so how? PS - I don't want to change skins, just colours.
