    Why would 2614 come before 0169 if it's in alphabetical order?

    both of you are wrong,simply because,2614 and 0169 aren't even letters!joke...well there is no way of arranging in the dstt,unless,the order of the way you put it in,take all the games out first(backup)and put 2614 in the root of the sd card,then put 0169 and so on.

    I always remove the numbers (who needs them once you've got the game anyway?) and then use FatSort on the memory card to put the ROMs in alphabetical order.

    Just use y's menu, now it can be skinned fairly easily using the r4->Y's theme converter software there's no reason to use the daft 1 list DSTT menu, in fact it's necesary on 4gb and bigger mem cards.

    You can also sort your games this way (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 card, they cut/paste very quickly (it really only updates the filenames in the file table).

    Of course, unless you rename the games so that they don't have numbers at the beginning of the name, 0169 will still come before 2614.
