File ordering within XP

  1. Hi guys -

    This started out as an audio anomaly - my MP3s started playing out of order from my USB drive (set to play sequentially from my car's head unit).

    I couldn't figure out what was going on, as all the tags were correct. I recopied the files from my HD to USB, and noticed that the sequence in which Windows copies the files across was the same sequence the files played in.

    Strangely, if I make a CD out of the same files, they play in the correct order.

    Is there a way of forcing Windows to copy in order other than copying one file at a time! Or is this perhaps not the source of the problem to begin with?

    Anybody had similar experiences?
