I've wasted several CD-Rs trying to burn a compilation CD in my desired track order. Each track is designated in numerical order, and also in the metadata. I prepared a .cue sheet according to existing tutorials for older versions of ImgBurn (my version is 126.96.36.199, from before malware infested the program).
I still get tracks in alphabetical order; yes, I am trying to burn an audio CD. Do I need to convert all the tracks to another format, such as .wav, to make the .cue file work properly?
The solution is probably some bone-dumb simple thing, but ImgBurn is, like so many programs of the last decade, so over-ornate that it's hard to use. The obvious is not made obvious.
Any friendly, non-surly advice is greatly welcomed.
