5) The card now has directory order a, d, c, e, f

Confirms my suspicion that the card is really reporting arrival order.

That's a FAT characteristic. The software in the player may not implement sorted directory listing (f.i., they use findfirst, findnext in msdos).

I too had a fairly brainded mp3 player that acted this way.
Nuke and reload seemed to work.

Fast format should be enough.
