Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I think that your player has been set to 'Shuffle' rather than to (and the name for this varies) 'Normal' or 'Sequential' or similarly named mode.
Shuffle mode is when the sequence of songs or numbers is set to jump around somewhat at random. The other mode is when it plays them in order,
If you need exact information as to how to re-set Shuffle mode, or enable the other mode, please tell me first what maker and model # ***** MP3 Disc Player you have. (The car model is unfortunately not indicative with any exactitude, since aftermarket models are often installed, or different models installed depending upon minutiae of the exact model and manufacture date of the car, etc. etc.)
