I think I figured out the best way to do this. Make the default file size humongous, like juggungous, ludacris big to get all the mp3'* into one file (since I kept this drive to zero fragmentation and disk tuned, this should pose little problem). Then save the first cluster to be labeled as an mp3. So far, the random 200 MB chunks I've tried have been in alphabetical order, song-wise, so I can use my old song list to name the pieces as I go.

About ~7 GB should do it.

Well, yes, I've considered it, but I've never been close to running out of space on my two drives. The only times I burnt music was for a music type CD for my car. I have several of them, but that'* only ~100 songs or so.

The number isn't really 7 GB. I don't remember what it was, but I know it was lower than that, so it is a safe number.

Trusting hard drives is like putting your car on cruise and lettig go of the wheel. Sooner or later its going off the road....
