    With my old Windows machine I used Nero to make my MP3 discs. But with my new iMac I figure I can use iTunes to burn MP3 discs. I like to do the following things with my discs

    1. Put about 10 or songs in each directory.
    2. Put the songs in a specific order.

    With iTunes I would also know if I can rearrange the order of the songs in a playlist

    Also sometimes I will put a CD on my iTunes and then I would like to make a back up usually for the kids music. The problem is that it doesn't maintain the original song order of the original disc.

    Are these things that iTunes is capable of? I tend to think it can but I must be doing something wrong. Can you point me in the right direction?? Thanks!

    You shouldn't have a problem rearranging the order of the playlist in iTunes. As far as making the backups, there are better burning applications than iTunes. I would say use "Burn." It's a free app, and it burns really easily. You could also just copy a CD into iTunes, and then create a playlist for that album. You would then burn that playlist. Let me know if that was what you were looking for.

    I will try "Burn". The problem I was having is that even if I took one of my kids CD's and put it into iTunes, iTunes wouldn't recognize the original order of the songs. If I make a playlist, it puts the songs in alphabetical order.....not the original order they came off the disc in. Is there a way to preserve the original order??
