    Is there a way to create a MP3 CD using the Playlist name as the folder
    name? Say I've organized groups of songs into Playlists. Now I'd like to
    burn a MP3 CD keeping that same layout so when I'm playing this CD in my
    car I can jump between the folders with out having to go through one long
    list of songs. I can't find how Media Player will let me do this. I'm
    probably missing something simple. Can someone help point me in the right
    direction? Thank you.

    Use any other burning software, even Windows Explorer, to manually create
    your MP3 disk. Just create it as a data disk containing your MP3 files and
    playlists organized howevery ou want them organized.

    I understand, but was hoping for an easier solution. The songs are
    scattered all over my hard drive and to pick them one at a time and copy
    them to the CD in Windows Explorer is a very tedious task. The various
    playlists already have them organized and it would be so much easier,
    plus provide a good documentation trail, to just identify the playlists
    desired and the software would name the folder according to the playlist
    name and copy the songs/files listed into that folder.

    Hmmmm.. Sounds like the next tool I need to publish is my MusicDiskMaker
    program. I use it to extract random collections of music into a temporary
    folder from which I burn an MP3 or data CD. If I modify it to be playlist
    driven, it would be perfect for what you want and would be a nice improvement
    for me as well.

    Yes, it does sound like it would do the job perfect. Let me know if you
    need help testing or anything.
