PC to USB to TV?

My pal has some holiday pics stored on their PC and in slideshow they display in the correct order (as they were taken by date). When they save to USB and watch on TV the order changes. Is there a way of maintaining the correct date order as taken when displaying on TV?

Any assist greatly appreciated.

May need to know the TV model. It could be that the TV is showing the photos in file name order and it may be possible to change the settings. A way round this is to name each file in date order by adding a 1, 2, etc. A bit laborious though.

Thank Woolwell. I think you are getting warm. I think the tv is sensing them by file name so that it shows File 1 first, then File 11 and then File 111 etc. think this is what we need to get around somehow? There are 700 pictures....zzzzzz!

1: Click "Start" from the taskbar and click "My Pictures."

2: Open the folder of photos that you want to renumber.

3: Click "Edit," then click "Select All."

4: Right-click on the first photo file, then click "Rename." This highlights the photo file's name so you can edit it. If this is a set of pictures you shot at the zoo, you could name this image "Zoo.jpg"

5: Press "Enter" on your keyboard to rename each photo with the new base name and to add sequential numbers to them, such as "Zoo-001.jpg," "Zoo-002.jpg" and so on.
