Windows 7: How do I arrange video files in true chronological order

How do I arrange video files in true chronological order

When I open my library and look at my video files (arranged based on "date modified"), the files that are older than one week are alphabetically listed under "Earlier this week," "Earlier this month" and "Earlier this year." In contrast, when i copy those same files on a memory card (SDHC), they're arranged in true chronological order. I would like the library to show true chronological order (ie not separated by this week, this month, etc), so I could more easily determine which files have been copied over to the media card. How do I do that?

Stop using the Library feature and go directly to the actual folder they are stored in.

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Sort on date modified in the directory;

Just click on the "Date Modified" bar.

Library - display order, arrange/sort by, default save location
I have found that if you arrange the order of the libraries (in my case 3 each for documents, pictures, video, music) via move up/down (right-click when pulling up LOCATIONS link), it changes the way it shows in the left-hand library "tree" > view. But, it seems that you need to sort by library...
