View Full Version : [gnome] Fixing file transfer order in Nautilus?

January 20th, 2009, 05:08 AM
Hey all, this is a pretty linux-specific question, dunno who might be able to help me here (most likely heavy gnome hackers) but I've got a bit of a weird request.

I've recently purchased an MPIO MG100 mp3 player (4 gigs) which I got for the reason that it simply mounts as a FAT32 block device and I can just simply transfer files on to it by click/drag under linux.

This works fine, however I've got one problem. When I put albums on it (I keep my albums in folders) it seems to order them by order of which track gets copied first, as opposed to alphabetical or numerical order. Unfortunately it seems that Nautilus doesn't by default do file transfers in numerical order, so if I click/drag a folder the tracks end up getting loaded in a messed up order.

Is there any way that I can force nautilus to copy tracks and folders recursively in alphabetical order or is this one of those instances where I'll need to continually move things around using the command line?
