Order of photos/burn to cd

Just back from hols, great photos and wish to display them in a certain order.

The order looks right on the file listings (Windows XP) because I batched/rename them but when it burns instead of Kenya1,Kenya2, Kenya3...etc, it comes out on screen/dvd as Kenya1,kenya100,Kenya101...Kenya2, Kenya200...and so on...

How do I get around this? I have some software from Panasonic, Irfanview but it lists them the same way, its just the burning.

Hi SkidSolo

The only way i've found is if you have say 999 pics start the number convention at 001, 002, 003 etc....

that will keep the order intact..

for your problem windows is just sorting correctly based on the file name...

hope this helps

Irfanview has some fairly awesome batch renaming abilities, particularly in it's latest incarnation - v3.98. Most people never discover them, but they're helluva useful.
