I uploaded some vacation pics to my kindle and later added a few. Of course they were not in chronological order. So I deleted them and started over uploading the complete file. THEY ARE IN THE SAME ORDER! How can I fix this?
I'm sure this has been covered, but I can't find a thread.

I don't have a Fire, so I'm sure someone else will be able to give you more specific help, but is there an option to sort by different criteria? Are the files named or numbered? If numbered, you'd need to sort by that. If named, you might need to add a number to the beginning of each file name so it can sort by that.

Renaming - true I suppose - haven't tried it, but I would like to come up with a better solution than doing 55 renames.
I can't be the first to encounter this situation. Seems like it should have been addressed long ago.

I agree with preferring to come up with a better solution, but it would help to know what it's currently sorting by. Have you figured that out?

I believe it is sorted by entry sequence. I have deleted and reloaded the picture files several times. The result is the pics in the same sequence. The thumbnail file seems to know the sequence IT wants them to be and does not care what sequence I want.
