Re: my photos show up all mixed up, not in chronological...
Why not download them onto your computer (in a folder of its own) then arrange them yourself. Try this>
right click anywhere inside the folder window
from the pop-up menu, select anyone of the following - depending on your preference. Point to sub-menus 'Sort by' and 'Group by' under Arrange by menu and you can choose Name,Date,Tag etc. Your pictures will be arranged automatically for you.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

First, are you trying to view the photos on your camera, or is this after you've downloaded them onto your computer?
I took a look at my Cyber-Shot and it looks like it sorts photos strictly by the numbering sequence, not by date. I couldn't find a way to prioritize it to view by date in the playback menus either. Have you tried viewing them in index mode? You can do this by pushing the "Home" button while in playback mode. From there you can pick either single, index or slide show mode. If you have already tried this, do the photos still show up out of sequence?
If you are trying to view your photos on your computer, it's a simple fix, and it's only slightly different from Mac to PC. When you have the folder open containing all the photo files, simply click on the field at the top of the columns that you want to view them by, i.e., "file size", "file type", "date modified", etc.
Are you sure that 240 file is a photo, because there are chance of it to be a video or supporting files corresponding to device,
For eg, if you use the memory card in cellular phones and if you use certain program in your phone it creates a custom file with own number to save the thumbnail information of the photo and these file may be copied along with your original files..
Have you checked, whether any photos is missing? If its so, if you feel that you miss 240 photos, then there are chance of it to be photo..
Else it should be some temporary file created by the device in support to the photo taken..
If you feel that you miss 240 photos which was in memory card, then please leave me comment stating the model and the make of the device in which the memory card was used..We will provide further assistance RnjVINODKUMAR
There are a few different ways to upload them. I have found that when I connect the camera to the computer, sometimes I get scrambled photos. When I use a card reader, connected directly into the USB port, I get all good pictures. If I connect the camera OR the card reader to a USB hub, at least half of my pictures get scrambled. I take 3-4 thousand photos in a years time. I was happy to end the problem.
The camera just assigns names in numerical order (IMG1234, DSC5678, etc.). If you delete pictures or transfer some to your computer and leave gaps in the sequence, the camera will reuse the names. So your photos are out of sequence based on the filenames.
The easiest solution is to not let pictures accumulate in the camera. It's not a safe thing to anyway, since if something happens to the camera or its memory card you will lose all your pictures. When you finish shooting a bunch, upload them to your computer so you can file them. Change the names to something more meaningful than the simple camera-assigned number. Put them into folders so you can find all your trip to the beach photos easily. THEN BACK THEM UP ONTO A CD!!
If you have a whole bunch of pictures in the camera already and they are mixed up, you can upload them to your computer and use the software that came with the camera to organize them by photo date. You can also download applications such as Picasa to do it.
I've found I need to plug a separate SD card into the frame and copy my pictures to that to get them to stay sorted chronologically like I want. The internal memory in the frame puts the pictures out of order every time but the SD card has been keeping them sorted fine.
Sounds like the photos are imported based on creation date. Changing the file name will not change the order in which they are added. iPhoto looks at the files as if you were developing film. The pictures load in the order they were taken (created) I do not belive there is a way around this unless you can somehow change the creation date before you import.
