Thinking of putting all my MP3's (will connect it up to my Hi-Fi)on a CD (havent got a DVD burner!) but not sure if i should put them on split up into albums or just burn them all as separate tracks. Think albums likely to be better but thought I would ask for peoples opinions as I am sure they know far more than me.

Or are there better alternatives.

Thanks and hope I have put this in the right section!

This is how My Music is currently organised on my hard drive:

My Music\<Artist Name>\<Album Name>\# Track Name

EG:

My Music\Kanye West\College Dropout\01 - Intro.mp3

;)

Organisation is the key! :D

best way is to name the folder the album name, and have the tracks inside.
that way then, you dont have to go through several folders to get to the mp3's.
then just drag and drop the files ready to be burned.

Does this method allow tracks to be played in random order? i.e. not just within one album, but randomly across the entire CD.

not sure dude.....one way is to burn all the tracks together, with no folders and select random play then.

Yes, I thought trial and error would be the way to go.

Just hoping for a short-cut. Never mind - thanks anyway!
