2 PL OK.

According to the MW the file should be numbered "01"

Tom, please use the naming convention from the first post for your files:

Example filename blackdwarf_##_scott_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number...

If you have too many _underscores_ in your filenames, it throws off the automatic cataloging process.
Thanks!
Cheers,
Ava.

Ava,

Do I need to reupload the files to correct the underscores?

If this is the only thing wrong with the file (meaning: no further PL notes), then you can leave them. Just make a note in the Magic window so I don't forget to change the filenames before cataloging.
Cheers,
Ava.

Volume is a tad low (85.9db). This is mostly due to the section from 00:00-9:50 being lower than the remaining portion of the file. If you highlight the first section and amplify it by 4db the two sections will be more similar and the overall volume will be ok.

The first 9:50 is now louder than the rest of the file by about 4dB. It's almost as if it had been amplified twice by 4dB. Sorry.

I suspect that new one is now mixed too low. I may need help. Any suggestions?

Yes, it is low. The easiest thing to do is to amplify the entire original file by +2dB. This will leave the entire file with a volume of ~88dB without making the opening section too low.
