Welcome to ABi

Rockboxed DAPs are capable of using playlists in the order they were saved when they are created using Windows Media Player. It does have to be playlists as or they will play in the order they are seen in the File Browser or Database. That's not a matter of it messing anything up, it's that it's doing what it's directed.

If you drag files from the player in the playlist panel of WMP, arrange them the way you prefer they play, then save that list on the player as a .m3u playlist it should work they way you expect. It's the same with any software that's able to save a playlist as a .m3u.

MediaMonkey worked decently for me in the past but I found it buggy after the 4.x update. It seems to lock up when trying to scan a Rockboxed player and causes them both to freeze. I stopped using that and just use a portable installation of foobar2000. I'm accustomed to the interface, it's much lighter on resources and it's small enough to carry on the player if I prefer.

I drag files from the player into the main playlist, arrange the the way I prefer and save them as .m3u8. If there's files from both the internal and external memories saving them to the external memory creates file paths that work to play all the files.
