Is there a tool / add on / an option to sort files / folders on SD-Cards, USB-Sticks etc. to play the tracks in the desired arrangement on a CD-Player, MP3-Player, car radio etc.?

It sounds like, within each folder, the contents are presented in the order you wrote them. Therefore you don't have to name them 1 2 3 4 5 etc.

Yes, it seems to be all the same the way they are named.

QUOTE
You could name them by album artist (in case it's various artists with individual track artists), then an album subfolder, and inside that, all the album tracks in the right order. You could also load m3u playlists into fb2k.

Yes, I understand.

QUOTE
A folder ABC containing two subfolders called The Lexicon Of Love and Beauty Stab (you could even append the year or release if you like) each of which contains the tracks from those albums with track numbers in the file names. If that approach suits your whole collection you can select the whole fb2k playlist and run the File Copy on them all to do it automatically.

Yes, that would be great. I will try.

QUOTE
They key is sorting by the order you want things in. Foobar reads all the tags so it can do that. I don't imagine the other file handlers read audio tags.

Yes indeed, they cannot, but I already have the existing folders (1, 2, 3...) and if they copy them in the right order it might work for these folders.

Thanks again.
