VOB play order in Media Player Classic

I have a collection of 15 VOB files which are promos for various organisations.  I am intending to play them continuously at an "expo", but I need them to play in a certain order.  They are VOB files only (no IFO files, and named after the organisation they represent instead of the usual naming convention for VOBs), and they all play without error, but in no obvious order.  

I placed an alpha char at the start of each filename (A,B,C etc), thinking that would determine the play order, but they still start playing in a different order.

My command line is this: E:\mplayerc.exe "E:\dvd" /fullscreen

If it makes any difference I am on a Windows XP computer
How do I get the files to play in the order I want?

What you can do is create a playlist by putting the filenames in a text file in the order you want them played. You then use the command with the -playlist switch which points to your playlist or select playlist from the GUI. This works both in Windows or Linux with mplayer.

Thanks for the reply gazmoe.  I cannot find the -playlist switch.  I get the error "unrecognised switch"  I have version 6.4.8.4 - is there a later version with the switch?  I created a playlist with the mpcpl extension, but I don't know how to load it and make it play.
VOBmerge is the tool you could merge VOBs in any order to a single VOB.
It will solve your problem.
I think we are talking about different software. I assumed you were using mplayerc from http://sourceforge.net/projects/mplayerc/ their latest version is 1.0.1. Which is just a frontend for mplayer. Which software are you using for playback?

I have done a merge, but the player freezes about halfway through playing the big file generated by VOBMerge
