11. Why does the order of MP3 tracks change when I compile an MP3 CD? It always ends up in alphabetical order, and I am unable to change it.
Firstly, there is a big difference between an Audio CD and a MP3 CD.
If you burn an Audio CD, all MP3s will be converted into CDA so regular CD players will be able to read it. (This is specified through the Red Book.)
An MP3 CD is really just a Data CD since you are using the CD-ROM (ISO) standard. Every CD-ROM (ISO) has to be written within the specification of the Yellow Book for this format. Otherwise it would not be readable on any system or by any MP3 player. This specification forces all tracks to be in alphabetical order.
But there is an easy solution. Set prefixes in front of the filenames which consist of numbers.
This way you can burn the MP3 audio files in the order you wish to play
