Hi there, i got the BDP5200 and when i look at my files in my flash drive (16GB) the files appear in chronological order, meaning the files i put later appear last in line.

Any way to choose how you want to sort them? I want to sort them alphabeticaly.

Thanks a lot.

From the FAQ of the Philips website:

Question:
How to display files inside a USB flash drive or a portable hard disc in the same sequence as I see them on a computer?

Answer:
1. Empty a USB flash drive or portable hard disk by formatting it.
2. Create a new folder on the empty USB flash drive or portable hard disk.
3. On the computer, navigate to the folder where the files are located.
4. Sort the files in the desired order.
5. Using the keyboard, press [Ctrl] button and [A] button simultaneously to select all the files in the folder.
6. Using the keyboard, press [Ctrl] button and [C] button simultaneously to copy the selected files.
7. Navigate to the new folder in the USB flash drive or portable hard disk.
8. Using the keyboard, press [Ctrl] button and [V] button simultaneously to paste the files on the USB flash drive or portable hard disk.

When you view the files using the player, the files would be shown in the sequence that you have set.

Important:
Use the keyboard to select, copy and paste the files. Do not use the mouse.

Hi Colicab, from what I know, BDP reads the files based on how it is written. You can sort the files from a computer (alphabetically). Good luck. https://imagicon.info/cat/12-19/vbbiggrin.png
