Arranging MP3's on a CD

I'm not even sure what i'm asking here so please bare with me. I recently got a Chrysler Pacifica which has a CD player with MP3 capability. I burned the CD and was able to play it but there seems to be no rhyme or reason in navigating the files.

IOW, when i hit the up or down button on the player it seems like it's a crap shoot as to what will pop up. I still have some learning and messing to do, but thought i would ask here first. Anyone ever done this? If so, how should i arrange them on the disk?

It would be nice to have it sorted by artist, then we could scroll to the artist and the navigate to the song. Sorry, i'm a stupid gen X'er from the audio cassette era.

Try re-burning with artists sorted into their own folders.

Up or down might be skipping ahead by ten or a hundred tracks. I'd try what Crono suggested. A lot of the time, such devices are able to show some representation of directory structure. Experiment, blank CDs must cost less than paper by now.

I used media player to burn because of this very reason. Media player allows you to sort various ways. I was dragging artists into the "burn" pane. I didn't want to have to manually create that many folders and drag files into them. But I will give it a go and try some other things along the way.

It's like a station wagon. People hate station wagons for some reason, but need station wagons. So if you want to sell a station wagon, you can't call it a station wagon.

If you have an MP3 player, I suggest you use the "audio in" (sometimes it's called "AUX in") if you have one on your car's CD player. Burning music cds are PITA, not to mention cds are more costly than dvds nowadays.

These would be data CD's. It's the same media, but very roughly ten times the song capacity. I use folders by artist when burning. On my Pioneer, the buttons above and below (N &S ) the volume move fwd/back by folder, the East and West buttons navigate by song.

Why settle on music when you can have movies and games too? It's an absolutely sweet system to have in a car.

Unless you are an automaker. Then it's cheaper to import a 4 door than a 2 door (this may be old info). After 1990, a 4 door was considered a station wagon and the 2 door was considered a truck. I know that's the only reason that you didn't see too many 2 door pathfinders after 1990.

So this is my non-unibody station wagon complete with a very traditional 4wd system and skid plates everywhere
