Okay, this is going to sound like a stupid question to those far more IT literate than I.
i am currently transferring some of my 28,000 odd tracks to an mp3 player. But when they were transferred from pc to my Cocktail X10 the Cocktail automatically placed a 5 or 6 figure number in front of the title. I'd really like to get rid of those numbers so that I can alphabetically list the tracks instead of numerically listing them. I suspect this is not possible but would like to have it confirmed.

This is a metadata issue -
Are the tracks albums or single tracks from various sources ?
The reason is that most metadata are tagged to an album, therefore you do not have to worry about prefixed numbers.
Just sort by albums & then alphabetically.
This is a general concept for all devices; i use the proX100 CocktailAudio so they should all work the same.

They are mostly stored in album form but the individual tracks on the albums all have numbers as well.

If the albums are linked with the tracks, why would you like to sort then alphabetically ?

ALBUM Example 1 (Album A)
0001 Tracka
0002 Trackb
0003 Trackz

ALBUM Example 2 (Album B)
0001 Trackx
0002 Trackp
0003 Trackq

To display or sort alphabetically you have to link all ALBUMS & display alphabetically ...(not chronologically). You would be confused.
0001Tracka - A
0002Trackb - A
0002Trackp - B
0003Trackq - B
0001Trackx - B
0003Trackz - A

Your tracks might be showing 0001 as a name but the metadata embedded within the tracks could be 01 or different.
28K are a lot of tracks; so i would focus more about displaying in album mode rather than A-Z or using chronological display.
