Okay, this is going to sound SO elementary, but apparently, it's NOT because I've been sitting at my computer for over 2 hours trying to solve it on my own! :thumbsup:

A friend asked me to burn a CD for her of various songs from other CDs....okay, easy enough, right?

I ripped the songs from the CDs (everything done thru Media Player) to my PC. Then, I made a playlist and put them in the correct order of how she wanted them burned.

Hit the burn button....CD done and burned. Easy enough (again), right? Well, guess what?

Two hours later....this is what I have---the software keeps burning the songs in the order of the ORIGINAL TRACK NUMBERS (from their respective CDs). YIKES! :flowers:

Why is it not burning them in the order I specified? I read through all the Help documentation w/in the program itself, and it says it should burn in the order specified.

Does anyone know why it's not? BTW...I tried to use my Sony Nero software too, and it did the exact same thing!!

Is there anyway to overwrite the track numbers so it won't order that way or what other options do I have? Thanks

You could convert them to mp3's and try removing the track numbers with an ID3 tag editor.
Here are some of the free ones I found at SnapFiles:
ID3 renamer
eags on!
MP3-Info Extension

There are more, but this is where I quit looking. :thumbsup:
Here's the complete list where I found these:
