Burning Data Disc, Can't Put Files In Order, They Are Numeric

Question

I am burning a data disc. I have 26 file that are numbered, however they won't list numerically and I can't find a way to move them up and down. I know I used to have this capability in another version. Please help?

Can you give us an example of the naming convention?

 

Windows is alphabetizing the files, as Windows is wont to do. So, of course, the end user could tell Windows to sort in a different direction too, so does it really matter?

 

To get a "proper" numeric sort, you need to put the numbers at the front of the file name, as in:

 

01. File 1

02. File two

03. File three

.

.

.

26. The Twenty-sixth file

 

Those will display in order if sorted by file name. And notice the leading zero ("0"). That is required.

 

Does that help?
