Subject: RE: File Sorting
From: Jonah, Jim (Jim.Jonah_at_compuware.com)
Date: 2003-05-12


After starting up my JukeBox I use the "-" key instead of the "+" key to
cycle to the bottom of the list, which for me is where all of the playlists
end up in the sort order. Even though I have 260+ artist folders at the top
level of the HD, once I got used to using the "-" key the sort order didn't
bother me at all. If I want to go directly to an artist folder I can use the
"+" key, if I want a play list I use the "-" key.

NBD.. at least on my JukeBox Studio 20

I found the easiest way, is to always name
playlists with a number at the front e.g 001.playlist.m3u

You probably find a symbol works better at front ~
or something.

You find that dumps ya playlists at the top.
