How can I just have a program consecutively open each file in a specified folder in order? I don't want to have to select them (because the puts a limit to around 400 or so). I just need it to take a folder and load each file one after another.

This worked for me.  I'm just printing the output but you can replace the Response.Write line with any type of array or ArrayList, etc.

private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
  DirectoryInfo dir = new DirectoryInfo("D:\\EfficiencyLab\\");
      TraverseFolder(dir);              
}

    private void TraverseFolder(DirectoryInfo dir)
    {
      FileInfo[] filesInDir = dir.GetFiles();
      foreach(FileInfo file in filesInDir)
      {
        Response.Write(file.Name + "<br>");        
      }
      DirectoryInfo[] directories = dir.GetDirectories();
      foreach(DirectoryInfo newDir in directories)
      {
        TraverseFolder(newDir);
      }

This is also a recursive function.  I tried it out and it's fast.  Just don't try to access any restricted directories.
