How Do I Keep a Playlist Order When Copying From iTunes To a Flash Drive?

I have tried putting a number in front of the song (01,02,etc.)
I have tried using the export option rather than drag and drop.

I am using Mojave latest update and latest version of Itunes.

    If you are copying the plain audio files to a Flash drive, then you will just end up with a set of files there. They aren’t in any “order” — they are just files on a drive just like any files in any folder.

    So it is up to whatever you are using to view or play the files to sort them. For instance, in the Finder you could view files sorted by date or name or size, etc. If you are using something to access the drive, then it would be up to that device to decide what order to show or play the files.

    That said, putting numbers in front of the file name is a good idea. Not the song name, which is metadata in the file, but the file name itself. So you may need to export them and then rename the files in the Finder on that drive.

    I’m not sure what you are doing from there so it is hard to advise further.
