Sharing what I do.
For years with sorting not being a feature on many devices I figure out how it sorts then pre-pend the usual 00, 01, 02, etc. into the filename. It's been this way for decades but you see a new generation of folk that are not used to less than perfection or expect what works on the PC to work on the toasters.
It could be simply because there wasn't enough memory to add more code. Again, these are not big computers in there.
