Sorry I know that this is a older post, wanted to comment incase they havent found a solution.

What I do for this is to use calibre first off to keep track of my books / edit meta data / covers etc.

Then, when I use calibre to export the books to my PB360, I have it creat sub directories first off using authors sort name ( ie alpha by last name ), then inside that folder I have it store the books using the format:

Series Title, Series Number - book title.
( ie - Funky Dunkies World 01 - Donut Crumbs dont drop in Coffee )

I then set up the 360 to sort books based on file name.

That way all of a authors books are in seperate directory, and inside that all books are sorted by series name, then in order of the books in the series.

If it isnt part of a series, then the series name / number is left off and its just the book name.

Takes jsut a little setup in calibre, but after that is great and easy to find the next book in a series, or even the series you want to read.

I do fudge just a little bit tho, for those series were each book is written by a different author ( some fantasy series etc come to mind ), I make the sort author equal to the author of the first book in the series, or the one that I mentally think of when I think of that series ... just a personal preferance.
