Alphabetizing playlist groups

On my Sansa e260R, the playlists (not the songs) are out of order in the list.  For example, a playlist called Zooey comes after one called Crooners?  And one called Kiss is last on the list.  The songs are in the order I put them in, but is was an unpleasant suprize when I wanted to go to a playlist starting

with a Z, and it wasn’t the last one! 

I had the playlists ordered  alphabetically in the sync ist, and WMP11  reflects the odd order I see on the player.

Shoul I format the device and individully sync each playlist inalphabetical order, instead  of assuming WMP will sync them aphabetically?
