Now, I want to create a new file folder, and drag and drop the pictures I want, in the order I want, so I can burn them to a CD, ( 1A 2A 7A 3A 8A 9A 6B 5B 4B ) much the same way you would sort pictures in a photo album.
The problem is, the computer will always arrange the photos by some criteria. Other than changing each pictures file name to get them into the order I want, is there any program out there that will simply allow you to just drag and drop each photo into a new folder that will disregard the file names?
Thanks for any reply.

It does a great job to create meaningfull filenames and directories at download time from you camera (using EXIF info).
You can place images in albums and perform operation on this albums (copy, slideshow, email,...) without moving your files. Images can be in as many album as you like. When you delete an album, you do not delete the files. From cam2pc, you can easily call your favorite image editors to start working on any image you want to modify.
There is a freeware and shareware version so you can try before you buy.

You can have a look at another freeware: picasa

Hope it helps,

Assume you are using Windows XP, just open My computer and select "Details View" then add another Field such as Title or Comments,
then select all the pics that are the same category by holding down the Control key as you click each one, then right click and select properties, then Summary, switch to advanced view and highlight the Title field (or Comments if its likely to be a few words) and start typing.
I find it's very helpful to include as much info as possible in these editable fields for searching purposes later on.
Then, back in Details view click on the grey panel at the top of the Title column and they'll all be sorted on "Title" rather than date, name etc.
Voila as they say
Hope this helps

Don't get the idea that a computer always stores files (pictures) in any specific order that you can retrieve. The disc filing order is decided by and known only to the operating system. It is up to the user (in effect the application) to specify what order they are displayed to you. Good applications give you the flexibility to do this how you want.

faststone image viewer is getting better and better with each version! try the latest beta - it's absolutely great!
in some way even better than acdsee 8! the editing functions in fullscreen mode are unique!
according to the author, a custom sort order function for thumbnails will be implemented soon.
as far i know, this feature is currently only provided by acdsee.
