Best way to create Music MP3 playlists ?

Been doing this for ages for me and others as well, but never found a good way to get the order of the songs when I put them on a USB drive.
I know you can manually change the 01 or 02 at the beginning of each song, but is there a less tedious method ?

A playlist usually plays in-order per the playlist file (i.e. [u]M3U file[/u]) or your player software should be able to sort by artist/album/title or shuffle, etc.

If you are playing on a car stereo the “features” may be limited (and it may not even recognize a playlist).

No actually its for use on my CD player which has a USB input, and also a small Yamaha Head unit that I use with some smaller speakers in my bedroom.
