Windows 7: Media players and directory structure

Media players and directory structure

I have a set of CDs that provide audio and video samples for a text book. I've copies the CDs to a hard drive but the text refers to the samples by track number and there are no more "tracks" as such. Does the standard Windows copy build the directory entries in the same order as the tracks in the original CD? If so, is there a media player that will show the directory entries in their physical order (and hopefully count them for me) rather than first performing the standard directory sorts first?

I have the Windows Media Player and VLC. I don't see how to use either of them the way I need (although the WMP will at least let me access the CDs by track number).

when you rip a cd it rips each track in order and numbers it accordingly, as it is a cd it has no meta data so you will have to name the album and the tracks manually in explorer ,

Actually, these CDs do have metadata (if that's the stuff meaningful to Windows). WMP doesn't see it, but explorer sees a directory called "Videos" on (most of) these CDs. The directories are full of files VLC can play with no problem. Maybe I need copy them (Is that what "ripping" is?) as though they were non-computer CDs. It looks like I can use VLC to do this

ok ,possibly metadata was the incorrect term, for the audio tracks ,when you rip(copy) the cd tracks will be titled,
1;track one
2:track two etc,
these are the tracks i mean you will have to rename , but when they are copied they will copy off the disc in the numerical order, it gets a little hazy for me where there are video tracks on the disc also,
as im not sure about the track order with a mix of video and audio, my guess would be that they will display the correct track numbers regardless of the filetype.
possibly someone else who has copied similar discs will be able to comment
