I have a folder with 189 .mp3 files. They are supposed to be played in  sequential order, but my phone won't follow the layout, some numbers are 2 digits, some 3, and some have letters as subscripts. I want to renumber them from "001" to "189". Hopefully  my phone will then play them in order. 
 
 Here is the kicker; I want to do it via the Command Line.  Or a batch file would also suffice. I really need the practice.
 
ETA Each file has it's own name, of varying lengths, which I would like to keep.

To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

I use a tool, Bulk Rename Utility..which you may find useful for such tasks.

Thanks for the suggestion. The problem actually lies not in the file names, so much as it does to the medium used to store them. The files are on an SD card, and my phone will read and play them how it wants to play them, not how I want to hear them. I'll just put up with turning the repeat and shuffle options off, and manually looking for the next segment in the series.
