so, using a car radio with a usb port, ive been loading my flash drive with music.   The thing is, both my girlfriends, as well as my own car seem to organize the folders not  alphabetically,  but by modified date.

so if i copy some Quiet riot, than black sabbath, and then some metallica, when im scrolling thru on the radio, it will list them in that same order.

So i ask, if there can be an option to "touch" the folder in the side navigator where the usb drive would show up, and it will automatically go through all the subdirectories alphabetically, and "touch" them in order, so they are better organized?

i know its literally archaic how sony still develops these radios with a 150 folder limit, but also organizes it by modified date.

I really couldnt find a program out there that would touch the folders in alphabetical order for this sole purpose, thats why i post it here. I know many people can get some use if they use flash drives in the car.

I can recommend FAT Reader
It's a portable program that not only allows you to sort files alphabetically but also in any order you want.
