Of the features new to WMP, and one of the handiest, is the automatic splitting of burn lists on to multiple CDs. If you have a massive playlist that you'd like to burn, WMP will select the optimal place for splitting the list to put it on as few CDs as possible. If you don't like how the songs are divided, you can easily drag tracks from one place to another, though they'll then displace other tracks in that section.
