    Okay, this is pissing me off.

    In order to burn an album you can't simply click on the album cover and tell it to burn what's stored in the library... you have to make a playlist from it and burn that.

    But it has a mind of it's own. You can't sort the list and burn it the way you want it to. :mad:

    I even had it sort by track number and it burned it out of order.

    What gives?! :mad:

    You can drag the tracks around in a playlist, can't you?


    Unless Shuffle is enabled for the playlist. Then you can't move tracks and I think it burns them in a random order...

    Hmmm. I'll have to look into that.

    Frankly, iTunes seems to have a mind of it's own!

    Obviously this is a late response to this thread, but I've got a method which seems to allow for ordering the tracks however you want.

    Create the playlist and ensure shuffle is turned off. Then click on the left most sort heading. This is the one with the sequential track numbers listed in it. If it's not there you may need to enable it by right clicking on the other headings and select it from the list.

    Select it to have the arrow in the heading pointing up or down (doesn't seem to matter) and then you can drag around the tracks however you want.
