Windows 7: How do I keep photos in my chosen order when burning to cd?

How do I keep photos in my chosen order when burning to cd?

Am trying to burn trip photos to cd. Is there a way to do this and keep the order I want. My preference would be to order them according to our itinerary. I drag them to the "burn" area in the order I want but they are burned in the order the computer choses.

I'm not a computer nerd just a grandma who wants to learn. Thanks for any help.

What are you using to burn them? You could rename them with a number and it should work. (example : trip picture 1.jpg , trip picture 2.jpg etc.)
