    It's hot down here. Not from the flames of hell but from all the burning of discs to acheive one thing that seems impossible with iTunes 6.0.5: Create an MP3 CD without all those folders. Seems that iTunes now wants to organize my CD like it does with my regular Library. That's nice of iTunes and everything to make a folder for each artist to put on my CD, but it creates problems when I have 140 + folders on a CD that is trying to be read by my MP3 CD player. Back in the olden days of 6.0.4, iTunes made an MP3 CD without folders and I was happy. But now I'm only able to listen to all of my CD because my MP3 CD reader in my car only recognizes folders up to 100 or so. I don't think I made any changes in the preferences between upgrades and also burning as a data disc gives me the same results. Please free me from this burden... :(

    Quick and dirty solution:

    1. Make a playlist for the CD.
    2. Select all items in said playlist.
    3. Drag them to a blank CD-R in the Finder.
    4. Burn said CD-R.

    Not so elegant, but it works last I checked.

    IIRC, iTunes has two options for "data" discs:
    - Data CD/DVD
    - MP3 CD/DVD

    Did you try both options?

    Hey, didn't even see that! Yeah, I think MP3 CD is the option you want.
