Is there a program or utility to do this? I can only find FAT12 programs such as MM that will sort a FAT12 directory

Didn’t you ask this earlier already?

Also, some quotes from elsewhere:

I always use Fatsorter on my pc to sort my MSX sd cards. It obviously accepts FAT16 and can sort subdirectories as well. It saves you some waiting as well.

There is no sorting utility for FAT16 on MSX itself.

CF with multi-partitions for Sunrise interface are unmountable on Mac without compromising the partition table since OSX v10.7. Hidden files are also a problem, even on PC. A MSX version of Fatsort for FAT16 would be very appreciable but there must not be many competent programmers who have time to program it.

That's weird. I always mounted my CF cards (either Sunrise of Nextor) with two partitions on Mac OS-X without any trouble. It even recognizes and mount both partitions.

If you use partitions made with the driver for Nextor, it's normal. This is the only advantage of this driver.
