For any numeric prefixes, which are still sorted as ASCII character strings,  make sure all your numbers use the same number of digits - e.g. use 01, 02, 03, etc rather than 1, 2, 3. If your numbering system goes to 100 or above, you'd need to use 001, 002, etc.

Is there any way for it to sort files, just by the way the way in which they have been organsied in the folder?

In VLC the files appear just as they do on my computer when sorting, however, when looking at files through Folders Hierarchy, it still splits things and albums are not complete.  I have tried a rescan, but don't understand why it can't simply display files as they weer saved to SD card.

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere...

Use the library category 'Folders' (or 'Folders Heirarchy') and when you are viewing the list of folders, tap the three-dots men icon. Select List Options and then choose 'By Path' as the sort order. Then drill down into one of the folders until you see the list of songs, and use the same List Options feature to set the sort order at that level to "By Filename". Your folders and song files will now be sorted by true ASCII alphanumeric string sorting.

Note: that won't always mimic what Windows shows though, as Windows adds some human-interpretation to its sorting. For example, true ASCII sorting is case-sensitive (so "ABC" and "XYZ" both come before "abc" or "xyz" in lists) , whereas Windows treats 'A' and 'a' as the same thing as far as its sorting priority goes. See http://support.ecisolutions.com/doc-ddms/help/reportsmenu/ascii_sort_order_chart.htm
