Nikopol asks: "iTunes is very good at dealing with MP3 CDs made by itself, but MP3 CDs made with other software (in this particular case, HP MyCD on a Win 98 computer) aren't recognized at all. The ability to make an MP3 CD available as a source in iTunes is due to an XML file iTunes puts on each MP3 CD it burns. Other MP3 CDs, lacking such file (in fact, I think this file is on a separate HFS+ partition), are bound to appear in ISO9660 form on the desktop...and those MP3 are then bound to be permanently stacked in the main iTunes library, thus voiding much of iTunes Dynamic Playlists usefulness. Is it possible, via a plugin or some trickery, to generate such XML file that would allow iTunes to see any MP3 CD as a source? In fact, such trickery would ideally be applicable not only to MP3 CDs, but to networked drives or folders too! (I know, I know...Rendezvous...but it isn't implemented widely yet!)"
