Drag & Drop from Explorer changes file order

Hi folks,

I'm very sorry if this has been answered but I sure can't find it.

I queue songs into Winamp from Windows Explorer. When I drag and drop them into the Winamp playlist they are inevitably in a different order than they were in the directory. This occurs whether the files are numbered or not.

(This does not occur with Foobar2000).

Is there any solution or explanation to this behavior?

Many thanks,

I have the same problem, although the "sort files by name" (what name? path&file, or just file?) option is checked. Nevertheless, the files I drag'n'drop into the playlist editor appear in a strange order. Filenames are like:

[album] - 01 - [title].mp
[album] - 02 - [title].mp3
[album] - 03 - [title].mp3

The ordering is correct only if I right-click on the directory of these files and hit "Enqueue in Winamp". But when I'm IN the directory, and I select all the files, right-click, enqueu, the result is a misordered list of entries: I couldn't even figure out the algorithm of the sorting.

Any idea/solution?
