I recently got an external hard drive and put a bunch of files on it to be able to watch via my Roku media player. However when I checked it the video files they are not in the order I put them in?
Can a numeric sort option be added as an update to be able to play episodes of a show in order? I've tried sorting it z to a a to z and default and it's not in the order I put them on the drive. Do I have to simply title it 1 2 3 etc?
You have to be consistent. Either every name starts with 2 digits or it starts with 3 digits (i.e., 01, 02...10, 11.. or 001, 002, ... 010, 011...). Don't mix 2 digits with 3 digits.
I will try that the next time I get the chance to mess with my external drive. My computer died on me so it may be a while
If by some chance that works thanks for that but I still think they should add a numeric sort option to fix this issue
If I recall though I had labeled it like this
001 then when I get to 10 and above I always made sure I had three digits but it's like somebody else said even then once it gets to 10 through even further even after adding the 0 beforehand it throws it off from that point forward
Hey Renojim, thanks so much. It did work. I just tried it a few hours ago and now every thing is in order.
I just numbered my files by 2 digits
01 -20 since I don’t have over 100 files I do t need the 3 digits. But once again text you much for the help really appreciate it. They should still add numeric sorting just so people won’t have to struggle with this issue.
