I have a dilemma I can't seem to solve. Here is what I have sent to the vendor:

On the chip I have stored only MP3 Format. I’ve tried many approaches. For example
Copying in bulk, 1 file at a time etc. I have also changed through file properties things like track # and File name as well. Nothing I do will make this unit play the songs in the order I have put them on the Micro/sd chip. The unit plays well no complaints there. I use the windows 7 operating system. Creating a play list on VLC or windows media center or windows media player yields the correct result. The only place where this problem is evident is with this mp3 player. ???????
Makes really no sense. I look forward to your feedback.
Thank you

Usually good feedback here at Tom's so TIA for whatever you may offer.

Here is the solution I found. It works perfectly !!! and its simple. I did have to put numbers in front of the file names to get to tth order I wanted. Then ran the software. It will do alpha sort without the numbers if that is all you want.

Sort mp3 files in FAT folders: mp3DirSorter

Some mp3 players and some car stereos (with SD card support) play folders / tracks in the order in which they are stored in the file system. Not in alphabetical order. To fix this I wrote mp3DirSorter and now publish it as freeware <---- (he did not me).
You can download the software here.

Hope this helps.

I have found what may be a solution here but it seems to me to be awfully complicated to accomplish this goal.
