Hey All..

Wondered if anyone can help - I have been burning a CD of an Album I just downloaded - it's for my car. Anyways, I create a playlist from selection (CD) and then click burn.
All the songs are in their correct order. However, when they burn they are burned on to the disc in Alphabetical order instead of playing order - kind of annoying. When I print off the tracklist it too is in Alphabetical order. Has anyone else experienced this? If anyone knows of how to stop it I would LOVE to know.

Many thanks..

    It has appeared here a few times, so I assume it is a bug. Normally an audio CD will burn with the sequence as displayed in the playlist.

    I experienced the same problem, and up to now (iTunes 9.0.2), it's not been fixed. However, the workaround is not to create a new playlist from selection but to create an empty playlist and then copy the selection into it. It worked for me, but it's still quite cumbersome...

    I too have had this problem and burnt numerious CD's with the orders wrong!! Apple will be getting an invoice from me soon for this.
    As cawischma said, only way round it is to create a new playlist and copy the songs/album you want to burn.
