    That's the problem which tortures all of us, but there's is one tricky solution: back to your home, when you are on the comp, arranging the songs that you want to listen on you flash drive, just rename the songs by adding the numbers.

    You know like a list of songs:

    01 name of the song
    02 name of the song
    03 name of the song

    In this way you will get a list of songs with your own order and therefore the problem will be resolved..

    well i checked to see what these two songs had, one had 05 and the other had 333, they still played at the end of the songs i had installed, i think the flash drive automatically puts all new song at the end no matter waht number they have, but i changed the number on the one with 05 to 334, and that did it.

    what is it that you plug your flashdrive into?
    is it something builtin to the truck?
    whats the brand?
    do you have a screen?
    if you could let us know that, someone might know a workaround...

    Yes, you figured it out. The alphabetical ordering is done by the display program, They are on the drive in the order they are written, on e after the other.

    So there is what you need to do. First FORMAT the drive, use the "secure format" option the write the songs on the drive in the order you want to hear them, one at a time.
