    This has been posted before in other threads, but the easiest and fastest way to sort your roms (takes about 20 seconds):
    [*]Create a new folder at the root of your microSD card named "games2".[*]Go into your "games" folder (or wherever you keep your .nds files).[*]Do a "select all" then "cut" (CTRL-A, CTRL-X).[*]Go to your new "games2" folder.[*]Do a "paste" then "select all" then "cut" (CTRL-V, CTRL-A, CTRL-X).[*]Go back to your (now empty) "games" folder.[*]Do a "paste" (CTRL-V).[*]Delete your "games2" folder.
    Since none of the files are actually moving off of your microSD drive, they cut/paste very quickly (it really only updates the filenames in the file table).

    Have you guys never used right click -> arrange icons by "name" before?

    I'm almost wondering if some of you guys even know how to use a computer [​IMG]

    Is there a homebrew app that will allow you to sort files via your ds?

    so, obviously we're not the ones who haven't got the clue sir. right clicking and using the name sort only works for the os, it doesn't not work on the fat table that the firmware on the dstt will read. that would have been tested. if you set it to read that way after pasting all the files back in, it will work just fine. that's why there are programs that were made to do this. those people were thinking of what was really going on, not just what they were thinking was happening.
