Default MP3 Burning

I have a folder of 1000 .mp3 songs.

I want to take 30 of those .mp3 songs and burn them onto a CD in .mp3 format, not Audio.

Outside of taking those 30 selected songs, putting them in their own folder, adding 01, 02, 03 to the front of their filename, is there any other, simpler way for me to burn these 30 mp3 songs in the order in which >I< want. Not in alphabetical as every program I attempt to use does.

I cannot believe this has been difficult for me, but...

Creating mp3 with iTtunes strips all the information out of the song, so all you are left with is the Track Number & Title, and Nero will not let me sort manually, only alphabetically. WTF.

Any help, much appreciated!

If you are working in a Window's based setting:

Transfer them to the WIndows Media player and drag them all into a playlist. You can stick them in what-ever order you want them in and then when you click on the "burn " button it will ask if you want to burn an music or a data CD. I think that will take care of it for you.

Not sure if Nero has that option. I quit using their stuff years ago.

rename each one with a letter in front instead of a number.
for example
A elvira
B Hound dog
C A boy named sude
D Wind beneath my wings
etc

It doesnt matter anyway once they are burned in CD format it strips the song and artist name of them. Wav format lacks a tag function.

I am using Mac, but if I have to do what I want in Windows, I'll switch... doing it via Windows Media, does it keep the artist information as well as the title of the track?

I'm trying to avoid your method, but do agree it would solve the problem, although I do think the 01, 02 method would be better, because adding more than 26 songs would bring on another sort issue.

I'll still be burning these in mp3 formats, I realize that information would be stripped playing CD Audio.

Couldn't answer that, I just know that I've accidentally burnt a disc that way and wasn't able to read it on any of my "ancient" equipment

What device are you planning to play these on??

The "order in which you burn them" is not going to matter AT ALL. That would only matter with an audio CD, because it goes through tracks in order.

What order they are played on or displayed on whatever device you listen to a data CD totally depends on how that particular device or file explorer sorts data. However, most things sort by name by default, so the numerical system works best.

If you want them to play in some crazy order without renaming them, and your device supports playlists (.m3u or other format), then you could burn a playlist to the disk as well.

You can burn them outta itunes (you said you have it.) Use the help tab and search "burn an MP3 CD" and it'll take you step by step through the process. Not that difficult to do.

I know when you set up the CD you must create a playlist which you can set the order as you wish, then burn the CD and thats the play order. Good luck
