I'm pulling my hair out here. :censored:
When I burn an Audio CD with Nero Burning Rom 9, it lets me rearrange the order of the tracks I want them put on the CD and also lets me customize the ID tags, and also even level the volumes plus a lot more.

I want to convert my Audio CD's to MP3 discs to play in my MP3 player. I know that you need to burn it as a "Data" disc or in some cases, an MP3 Jukebox CD.
However, after selecting the tracks, they are automatically placed in Alphabetical order and burned in that regard. I cannot drag and move them or find any option to put the songs in the order I want played on the disc.

How the crap do I do this? If Nero can't do it, what software can?

Thanks. :)

A .mp3 CD is like the file system on your hard drive. The only way to make the tracks line up in the order you'd link is to prefix the tracks numerically (ie 1_trackname.mp3,2_trackname.mp3, and so on). Also your MP3 CD capable CD Player may have it's own rules and formats for how it will read discs and folder systems.
