Windows Photo Gallery Viewing at Random

Don't know if anyone has come across this problem but it's kinda annoying and I can't seem to find an option to get it fixed.

Here's the problem:

Everytime I view pictures from my camera in a folder, I press next and the photos displayed go as random. Meaning, it doesn't follow the number order of the picture like say IMG_2430>IMG_2431.. and so on. It jumps around like from IMG_2430>IMG2490.. and it just go on randomly.

Any idea how I can get that fixed so it displays according to IMG number order?

Have you got your folder view set to auto-arrange ?

Yes I have it on. But it doesn't happen all the time, this problem I mean. I'll keep in mind to check if that option is turned on the next time this problem surfaces. Thanks!

I am having the same problem. I have Vista home Premium, but do not know if it is 64 or 32 bit. It goes through the pictures at random when scrolling through with either the arrow keys or clicking on the next arrow.

It doesn't matter if Auto Arrange is on or not on my machine. The pictures are always out of order. I never had this problem with my old camera. This has started scince i bought a new camera. I do know it's starting to P--- me off. It makes my job a lot harder not having these picture in order. If anybody has any ideas i sure would like to hear them.

WooHoo, fixed it for me. Right mouse anywhere in the window (file directory) that has the photo's stored, then "sort by" then make sure both "name" and "ascending" are selected.

I Right Mouse clicked on the page and went to sort. Than I sorted by "Date" and "Ascending". It fixed this annoying problem right up for me. Now I can view my pictures in the order they were taken (without it skipping 3-5 pictures in between).
