When burning a CD data (mp3 file cd) How do I arrange titles in the order I want. I can only get them to burn alphabetically. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

mp3 files

i do not use nero, but most other programs that i have used for compiling
mp3 always lists and burns the songs alphabetically.

one way around this is to re-name the file by adding a number in the front of the file title. i.e. "01-A Big Hunk Of Love - Elvis Presley-mp3"
then place a number "02" in front of the next get
hem in the order you want.

if you have the mp3's in seperate folders for each album, most programs
will burn the contents of the folder (the mp3 music files) in the order that they are in the folder.

again most programs will place the Folders also in alphabetical order, unless you number or place a letter onto the front of the folder name.

remember if you take files from the folders to burn onto cd-r, the program
will place the mp3 files in alphabetical order...

example: if you have four mp3 files from the four discs of the "today,tomorrow & forever" box set that are not in their folder,
then the first four songs on the mp3 disc will be:

track one from the first disc, track one from the second disc,
track one from the third disc, etc....

i hope this is helpful
