iTunes burning tracks out of order

I have a album that has diff Artists on it. The Album Artist is filled in but when I burn the cd, it burns it in the order of the artists instead of the tracks. How can I force iTunes to burn this cd with the tracks in the proper order? I tried checking Compilation but that didnt work.

Since you burn a CD from a playlist, you have to get the playlist in the correct order, save that order, then burn the CD. The key is to get.the playlist sorted correctly ... do you have this set up as an album by track number? Once you have the playlist in the right order, right-click on the playlist name and save the play order, then you can burn.

It's still burning the tracks out of order & I have set to sort by track # & not artist.

Did you right-click on the playlist name and select "Copy To Play Order" before burning?

Yes I did & that didnt change anything. It starts out by burning track 5 as the 1st track.
