Bridge CS6: Problems with Importing Photos in Numerical Order from Nikon D800

I recently bought the Nikon D800 which I love. When importing pictures on to my computer through Bridge the thumbnails do not run in a numerical order but rather by date. This leaves me to uncheck and check each date in order to download the photos as they were originally taken. This can be very time consuming especially if there are 500 pictures taken with 10 days. This never happened with my old camera and I only can conclude that Adobe has not kept up with the software technology for the D800. I have talked at length to Tech support and they have do realize there are ways to get around this but no simple fix. If there was a button we could hit to "sort by numerical order from ascending to descending that would work beautifully but sadly there is not. If there was a button to sort by date from ascending to descending that too would work. Adobe please this is not a problem I alone am dealing with. Please work this problem out for the future. I am using Photoshop for 12 years and love the program. By the way this problem also exists in Lightroom as well. I happen to like Bridge better. Please fix this problem

Lightroom allows you to change the import sort order to "File Name" which is normally an alpha-numeric sort.

Hi Rikk I went into Lightroom and found "sort" "File Name" and it sorted it by number. Interesting the date and time do not show up in Lightroom so it was an easy fix. Do you know if there is some way in CS6 not to have the date and time show up? Without the date and time it might just sort by number. Anyway thank you at least I have an alternative. I can at least import and then use Bridge.
Thank you for your help.
