Question

I'm new to this and it's driving me crazy. Either the help section with this program isn't written well or I just can't figure out what they're saying. I have EMC 7 and want to do a playlist and then burn a cd from that list with folders as well. What would be the easiest way of doing this? Since you can fit so many mp3's on one cd, I would like to put 10 songs per folder. Thanks in advance for all your help.

EMC7 will produce a playlist *only if* you have started by selecting "MP3 Disc" (as opposed to "Data Disc" or "Audio Disc"). And when you select "MP3 Disc", then in the bottom-right pane there appears -- in the left side -- a "PLAYLIST" file.

 

Then Select Source(s) from the upper pane -- folders or/and individual tracks -- and add them to the bottom pane.

 

You can right-click on the PLAYLIST to open the Playlist Editor. There you can *only* change the order of the songs in the playlist -- drag&drop, or Randomize, or Reset. (You can't delete or retype tracks' names, but you can change the name of the file itself.)

 

If you selected folders, the individual tracks are listed in the playlist.

 

But (as far as I can tell) your tracks have to be folderized *before* you select them. That is, you would *select* the already-existing folders from the upper Source pane. You have to have already made your folders first.

 

And another "but": "then burn a cd from that list" is not quite accurate. You are going to burn from the selected sources, and the playlist.m3u file will be burned also.

And -- the playlist will be in ... alphabetical order! unless you take steps to de-alphabetize, manually (right-click, etc.).

 

(I *thought* I had found that clicking on the "Modified" column once or twice, in the ...Project pane, would re-arrange the playlist also, but I have proven myself wrong.)

 

Not much response from jexee; perhaps overwhelmed by all the responses from Land of Enchantment.

Thanks, youv'e been very helpful.

 

You don't actually burn from the Playlist.The only thing it's really for is getting the songs to play in a specified order on a machine that uses playlists.

If you don't play from a playlist then the tracks will play in Alphabetical order.

Thanks again for your help. I appreciate it.
