    Itunes - Playlist won't burn in order - need for sch production HELP!

    Hi

    Does anyone know how to make itunes burn a MP3 playlist in the order that you have put it in. I have tried right clicking the playlist - copy to play order and burn playlist and the other way doing a straight burn - it still scrambles the tracks. I have also tried making sure the arrow is pointing upwards in the number colum.

    I need to try and sort urgently as need it for a school production this week.

    Many thanks

    I've just tried it on my Mac and it does burn in order and I haven't changed anything specific. Are you using the latest version of iTunes?

    According to the Help this is the case too.

    How to Burn a CD
    1. Insert a blank disc into the CD recording drive. A dialog box appears.
    2. Type a name for the disc in the Name field.
    3. Choose a disc format from the Format pop-up menu. For information about the formats, see the "Choosing a Disc Format" section, below.
    4. Click Prepare. A disc icon appears on the desktop.
    5. Drag the files and folders you want to save on the disc to its icon. See Note 1.
    6. When the files and folders are finished copying to the disc icon, arrange them exactly as you want to see them when the disc is burned. Once you burn a disc, you cannot change the placement of files or folders or their names. See Notes 2 and 3.
    7. Click the disc icon, then choose Burn CD from the Special menu. See Note 4. A dialog box appears.
    8. Click Burn. The disc is initialized and the files and folders are saved on the disc. This process takes several minutes. See Notes 5, and 6.

    Sorted - Thanks

    Thanks for the reply.

    I appear to have just sorted it by going to the burnt cd in 'itunes' and clicking on the number column and it has re-arranged the tracks in the correct order, even though when it was first burnt it was scrambled. Must have some setting wrong, as I know I have done it before on another mac.

    Thanks for the other advice too, re burning.

    Nice work Kathy. Apple was stumped. Twice. But your fix works. Thanks!
