I'm a little fuzzy - does Nero burn MP3 compilations based on a playlist? Also, if you burn the playlist file, you'll just have a CD containing the playlist file - a 12kb ascii file, and not 700 MB of MP3s, which is what I want. I tried dragging and dropping the whole playlist from Winamp to Explorer, and that did not work - or what are you suggesting? The whole issue is that I want to burn 150+ MP3s that are scattered in 100 different folders, and it WOULD take a long time to drag them all manually.
Now, the Disk writer actually works for what I want except: it has to re-encode all the tracks, and to a max sound quality of 56kbps. I guess that's fine, since it will allow me to fit more tracks on one disc, but it is also slower than it needs to be - there should be a way to just copy all those files to a folder. For 150 tracks, that is slow and consumes my entire CPU, I'd have to let it run overnight when it could be a simple copy operation.
Maybe I'll make a php script that translates a pls file into a batch file that copies all the songs to one folder - unless anyone else knows of a program/plugin that does this.
