I have a Epson EB-x12 which you can view files from a usb.

On my laptop i have a folder with files named.
1 through to 40 and then some later files with names such as 100nmx 101nmx 102nmx 110nmx.

Now looking at this folder on my laptop is has them in numerical order, 1 through to 40 then 100,101,102, 110 etc.
However when i put the same usb with the same folder into the projector, the files all go random.
it will put all the '1's' together.. ie 1 then 100 then 101 then 110 then 2 etc etc.

On the projector itself there are only options to sort by name or date in ascending or descending orders.
If I attached the projector to the laptop and run the same folder it views it correctly, how can i make it so the usb stick reads the same?
Please help, this is so annoyingand preventing me from doing a display at a local club.

Whilst to you it appears as numeric, to the file system, they are character strings, so 1,10,100,1000 will come before 2.
On your laptop, you are seeing them in date order by the sound of it.
Just follow the naming suggested by graham.
