    Everytime I burn an MP3 CD, the order is distorted. On my PC the list looks like 1, 2, 3, 4. When I burn it on a CD and play it in a player, it plays in the order (example) 2, 1, 4, 3. :(

    How can I ensure that the songs play in the same order (of albums as well as songs inside albums) as they appear in Windows Explorer?

    003_Album_Artist_Title.mp3

    I use Nero 5.5 that came with my Plextor CD-RW and Samsung CD-RW.

    My songs are pretty well organised and sorted. I always view them in that order only. But burning them screws up the list.

    They are named as

    Album - 01 Song Name.mp3
    Album - 02 Song Name.mp3
    Album - 03 Song Name.mp3
    Album - 04 Song Name.mp3

    So they are pretty well sorted.

    I just drag and drop the folders in the burning list in the Nero. There it appears in the proper order. But when I play the CD in an MP3 player, it is not in the same sequence. I hope I am making myself clear. Thanks for your help so far.

    I also came across same problem when i was beginner in cd writing.To maintain the order you have to prefix numbers to the names,but if you give names "1kalhonaho" and "11timetodisco" it will play 11th song first.So you have t use "001kalhonaho" if you want to play that song first.Then proceed with 002,003,004 and so on.

    I said earlier
    All my songs have are named properly and sorted on my HD. They are from 01 onwards inside their respective folders. So after 01, 02 should play and not 11 or 04 :(

    This will create audio CDs. MP3 CDs must be written as data CDs

    I really can't use one folder per file. That would be too laborious and will mess up the collection.

    I will try another software. Please suggest a free software and also the place from where I can download it. Thanks.

    ID3 tags are same as song names. If the song is 01 song1, ID3 tag is also 01 song1. I have taken great pain in ensuring that everything associated with the MP3 files is perfect. Still the sequence gets messed up :(
