Audio file management

I realize this is no iPod, but the wife was pretty excited that she could listen to music while she read. However...is it really true that audio files can only be sorted alphabetically by title or artist? And no playlists (or "collections" I suppose), just one folder for all files? I realize there is a shuffle function, but really - I like to sequence my listening the way I want it.

I could have sworn I saw a way to organize audio files somewhere on this forum, but I can't find anything now. Anyone have any ideas here?

Thanks,
luthier58

Well, 63 of you have looked at this and no one replied, so I guess there is no better solution. I edited titles to be alphabetical (A (title), B (title), etc.), which is somewhat stupid. I also figured out I could set up playlists by using separate memory cards, which is even more retarded. For a nominally MUSIC company, Sony sure dropped the ball on this.

And really, the collections function for books works fine. Would it have really been so much more trouble to add "playlists" for audio? I'm not a programmer, but it seems like the function would have been pretty similar (Apple seems to figured it out pretty perfectly).
