I've cross posted this from the original Iview forum 0- not sure how many people dip into that these days....
I've got an issue with sorting images in a directory/set taken with multiple cameras, and using fast shooting bursts. I'm using EM btw.

Assuming the cameras times are correctly synched (they wern't, but were adjusted in EM). If I now sort by capture date, the images sort correctly except for those in a burst sequence. Ideally, I'd like to apply a second sort criteria such as filename - but unfortunatly I can't see how to do this.

Looking at the EXIF data, EM only shows the times down to the second, so presumably doesn't sort at any finer level.

I've looked at the same directory containing the same files in using ViewNX, Nikons new viewer. That shows the times including a sub second figure (e.g 15:20:29.Cool Interestingly, when EM adjusted the times, it still preserved the extra level of information.

Sorting in ViewNX puts the images in correct order - so my solution is to use ViewNX to sort and then rename the files in a meaningful sequence, then re-import the files back into iView for cataloguing and adding data. Then to lightroom to edit and create a SSP gallery. Don't you love integration!

So, both problem and solution. When I started this post I didn't have the solution!

I assume that you meant "in correct order" rather than "incorrect order" in the second to last paragraph, so I've fixed that.

Yes, I often find that by trying to explain a problem, and really nail down the variables, I will come upon a solution.
