    Happy Holidays everyone.
    Forgive me in advance if my question has been addressed before.

    I am trying to burn my first mp3 cd for my new mp3/cd discman (thanks Santa) but I can't figure out how to keep the track listing in its original order instead of the automatic alphabetical order.

    I'm using Easy Cd Creator 5 Platinum.

    Thanks in advance,
    Holla.

    i think you can just drag and drop the files around to suit your playlist wishes. it has been a while since i have used ezcd, but i'm pretty sure it works this way.

    Thanks for replying. I tried the click and drag, but when I played the cd, all the tracks were alphabetical order.

    I'm stumped.

    You need to put a numeric prefix on the filenames. The player still looks at the tracks in alpha-numeric order, but because of the prefix they will play in the desired order.

    Your prefix should be 01, 02, 03 etc.

    Yeah, i usually do what rob does, i prefix them with numbers...

    Though i think SOME may play m3u playlists, you can see if your player supports that...

    For my mp3s, on my PC, I actually use I tunes to listen (I've got hundreds of them) because it puts each artist in a seperate folder on my harddrive. Then when I burn with Nero, all the files are in alphabetacal order by artist, which makes it really easy to skip through artists using album and album down. Just my .02.
