I am trying like hell to get a collection of music from MusicBee onto a USB drive, which holds much more than 70mb of music. It seems there ought to be no size and drive limitation when i try to burn a disc but there is.

I can drag songs in a playlist to an explorer window but then there are no artist/album folders. This has to be a common function. What am I missing???

You should use Synchronization to copy files to a USB drive.   If you right click on the drive, you can choose to treat it as a device, and then use standard Sync settings.

There isn't a laser involved, so you don't "burn" files to a USB drive as such.

You can set up syncing like scampbll suggested, or use right-click > Send To > Folder (copy) to copy the tracks over.
Bee excellent to each other...

Thanks a bunch. I had always thought that synchronize used the entire library. It seems to be working well.

Glad to hear!

I hadn't thought of Zak's suggestion; that's a good one, too.

I wanted to use the playlist to control the tracks I selected so it wasn't complete albums, etc. Seems the playlist sync did fine.
