Default Sorting by filename?? Is it NOT possible?

Please forgive the newbie post. It simply never occurred to me check that this kind of basic usage would NOT be included in the software.
I just got my new Zen, absolutely gorgeous little machine, BUT I can't believe there it lacks so basic a functionality as sorting tracks by filename.
I started programming nearly 40 years ago on an IBM360 (punchcards of course) as a physicist-trust me, that teaches you humility and how to appreciate a human-oriented interface-but NOT at the loss of basic functionality.

I am now a classical musician-->I album wrap all of my pieces (i.e. o/w you have 33 tracks for The Goldberg Variations).

All I see now on the Zen are are 100 files with the same tag- "Album-Wrap".

Am I missing something obvious here in how this gadget works?

Or is it possible the designers were so stupid ( sorry but that's the most appropriate word I could think of)?

Back in 1972, this astounding kind of technology existed only in SF, but it seems that idiocy in design lives on.

I hope I'm wrong- please correct me if I am. O/w this goes back tomorrow.
Happy holidays to all.
