The physical order of the files matters when I copy them onto my USB stick and listen in car mp3 player. Most of my music album folders are unsorted, e.g.
ls -f may produce:
When I copy that folder onto my USB stick, the files get copied in that order. My car mp3 player displays the files in the unsorted order, which is not what I want. I can subsequently reorder the files on the USB stick (see: How to reorder folders? (as displayed in `ls -U`)), but could avoid that altogether if I could reorder them within that directory them on my hard drive (ext4)? Is there a way of doing that?
(Failing that, there might be a way of writing a
find command, that gets the files, sorts them, and then copies them in order??) Any suggestions?
