How do you Make A Playable Music CD Archive

Ive done this before with Windows Media Player for my firend once before, where he needed his music all backup up from his PC onto CDs that he could play in his cd players. Basicly I have all his music, which wont fit all on one CD, so it has to burn the music onto several CDs to get a complete archive. Asside from Windows Media Player telling me to keep putting CDs in and reburn the last disc over and over (As in, I wound up with four copies of the exact same songs because WMP didnt realize it was done with all the songs and it just repeated the last disc) it worked out just fine.
Now, halfway through making another archive for him of a different batch of songs, it went from showing me that I had 5 discs to burn to having three discs, and started to burn the first music disc I already had made again. It wasnt that it removed the songs I already burned and was showing me what was left, it was like it somhow recalculated the songs...long story short it wasted a bunch of CDs because now I dont know what Im doing anymore and why it's not just burning parts 1,2,3,4,and 5 in order likke it should.
How can I make a music archive playable in CD players, and have the program just tell me when to put in the blank CDs? I have no problem making a music DVD for him, which contains all of the needed songs, but that wont play on his CD players (being the DVD format instead of CD). Its only when i take the same songs and have to fit them across several CDs that it gives me any trouble.
