    when I try to burn a cd in mp3 format the playlist is burned in alphabeticale
    order rather in the order I want. I use Musicmatch and they say it is because
    of windows explorer. How can I burn the playlist in the order that I put it
    in?

  2. It is because you need to have a playlist file on the CD that describes
    the order of the tracks AND the playback device has to understand
    playlists. Otherwise a CD iks just a big (unordered) floppy disk.

    You can also rename the tracks so that when they play back in
    alphanumeric order, they play in the order you desire. e.g. rename all
    the tracks so they have the track number in the file name.
