Actually, you have to do the same in Windows, or you end up with the exact same listings. .....
Bill, I am a bit confused on this issue as I had thought your statement to be correct and thus have named all my music tracks in the above order with 01. 02. etc. Took me a month to get it all done but does work flawlessly.
Anyways, I have since tested this in Windows on a Vista OS and in GUI, it does sort the songs in the order: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11, etc, the opposite of what I had expected. My test was the same MP3 renamed to "#. track", with all having the same album and same artist info. If I sort by name, they are in the right order. On the other hand if I look at them in a DOS CMD window, they are not, and 11. is before 2.
Not really sure what this means, and like I said above, Ive already gone through serveral TB of musc adding a "0" before single digit numbers because the HUB does see it that way, even if my computers do not (have not tested on my win7 boxes)
So here are the pictures below. 17 tracks sorted by name in the Vista GUI, and the same in a DOS CMD window. Vista understand that this is a directory of music (although not in the predefined music directory) as it has the fields for "artist" and "album" etc. I am assuming this is just based on knowing the file format. Perhaps it alters the sort order due to that.
Anyways, all that matters is how the HUB sorts, but I found this interesting as the results were not at all was I had expected. Please feel free to correct me if I am missunderstanding something here, always just happy to be learning how stuff works.
