How to name multiple avi files?

So, what do you need to name the files in order for Media Scout to recognise them as mutliple file rips, instead of single file rips.

It picks up the first file just fine, but then it wants to rename every avi in the directory with the first name, essentially overwriting all the parts with the last one.

My previous meta data tool was insisting on [Part 1 of 2] style naming, which Meta Scout doesn't like :) I'd just want to know what format it expects, so I can change the files manually.

This was driving me insane as well - thankfully I came across it by accident when one of my existing movies was named this way...

The format is CDX where X is the part number - so:

Hackers CD1.avi
Hackers CD2.avi
