Mp3 Cd Playback Order

Question

Hello all,

 

I just upgraded to Roxio Creator 2009. I am burning MP3 CDs.

 

The sort order as displayed in the "Burn MP3 CD" window is what I want.

 

The playback order seems to be alphanumeric by file name, which is not quite what I want.

 

How do I get the playback order on the burned CD to match the sort order in the "Burn MP3 CD" window?

mp3 files are just data and that's how they get sorted - the workround for a CD is to give them a number 001_track1, 002_track2 and so on

 

For other uses - create a mpu playlist and see if that helps

The songs will be in alphabetical order, since the operating system will default to alpha unless overriden with numeric.

 

Try renaming them

 

01trackname.mp3

02trackname.mp3

08trackname.mp3

10trackname.mp3

11trackname.mp3

 

If you have more than 99, use 3 digits (001, 002, 010, etc).
