I have an mp3 playlist in Rhythmbox. When I drag and drop it in a Brasero data project the order of songs is lost. In fact their sorted in alhpabetical order. As you can imagine this is awful for a list of songs you want to listen to a particular order. This does not happen when I burn a list as audio and not data project.
An audio CD consists of tracks. They are numbered and do not contain any Data about Artist etc.
A data CD however contains just that: data. Your files can be ordered by the file browser that opens it. The playlist from Rhythmbox is not part of the mp3 files. You however try to export it as an
m3u file. Most audio player software can read that format.
Jdpipe over on ubuntuforums.org posted a great little python script to solve this issue. It works by creating a sequence of symlinks from a playlist (m3u) and then feeding that to Brasero.
Worked great for me!
Make the python script executable and then run it from a terminal thus:
