* The audio files and folders that are loaded to this unit are played
back in the order the files and folders are received. But in case of
the structure at right, files in M2 are played after all files in M1 are
played since the loaded order of 1st hierarchy takes priority. Even

A.mp3 was loaded last, A.mp3 is played first.
