I hope everyone that wants this understands how long it would take to get
a directory listing. Each file would have to be read so the track number
could be extracted from the ID3. One or the other (v1 or v2 can't
remember which) is at the END of the file. You got big files, you had
better be one patient music lover!

If you simply add the track number as the first part of the filename, it
adds only two or three characters to the name, AND you get the advantage
of track order listing on both the PC and the player.
