How do you make your MP3 CD's?
« on: October 28, 2005, 04:04:17 AM »
For those of you with MP3 capable players, how do you make your disks? Do you use playlists, folder structures? Jam em all into the root folder? What's up?

I need some input. I have 55K songs and I have horible organization when it comes to making a CD yet my server is pretty damn organized.

when it comes to a CD, I usually just dump all the songs onto it, no structure, no play list.  As for home, I am organized by the obvious artist, album, genre, as well as favorites by a rating system, special play lists, and newly imported music.

Now that none of the vehicles I own have MP3 players in them, I pretty much rely on my iPod for my music on the go....with an FM transmitter so I can go between cars with ease.

It depends on what I'm doing.  For example, all my Zeppelin is on one disk, old Floyd on one disk, new Floyd on another, in folders for each album.  If I'm making a mix, Techno, Metal, whatever, I'll usually just dump it into the root folder.

When I had an mp3 CD player, I would make a mix in iTunes(tm), Shuffle(tm) it, then burn them in that order to the disk (at the root). iTunes(tm) would number them so they would stay put. Very rarely would I actually make folders. A friend of mine always puts genres together on separate disks, so she has one for hard rock, metal, hair bands etc...

Now that i have the iPod(tm) hooked up - if I'm not listening to a book I'll typically have it on random with one huge playlist and hardly ever change it. Of course, I tend to get stuck in my musical ways and listen to the same 5 CDs for years....

MP3 CD's??! Dude, get an iPod. Heh. Kidding. If it's a mix CD, I'll create a shuffled playlist in iTunes. If it's for archive/storage/transfer purposes, everything will be in Artist and Album usually in a Genre folder in the root.
I use my Shuffle for everything now though.

Well my passat has a 6 disc in dash changer that plays MP3s. To test it out I made a couple DCs real quick where I just copied artist folders, so I would have like 2 or three artists on a disc and it sucked.

So I was just trying to be efficient. The disc I made last night, I just threw everything in root, I didn't care much about the order because I just throw the player on random. :)

I know it has playlist support, so I wasn't sure if you guys created different playlists and used those for the music. I would like to try that, but it seems like a lot of work ;)

I keep all my Air Supply on one cd, and all my Barry Manilow on another that's all I really need... :lol:  8O

I use I-tunes but since my car doesn't play MP3 discs nor does it easily allow for an Ipod hook-up (Subaru really blew it on the stereo setup IMHO) I am stuck listening to plain old CD's until something better comes along for my car. I have an FM transmitter for my Ipod but the sound quality is crappy at best...

Normally I put folders on my MP3 discs organized by artist, unless I'm in a hurry then I just throw it all together...

Hey Jay, it's probably massively illegal, but give us all FTP accounts and we'll upload all our music and pull what we want  :twisted: I've got...alot...my stuff is weird stuff though.

If I ever get the server running again I will let you guys know and maybe we can work something out. I have like 55000 songs, some stuff I don't even know.

I don't put MP3s on CDs, but if I was going to, I would jsut do it in alphebetical order and date... so as time goes on... you might have multiple A-D CDs, but then you can reorganize after a while.

Well this is more oriented towards those with MP3 CD players, there is no way I would attempt to put my library on CD. :)  I guess if I have a few dual layer DVDs I could cram em on there.
