ITunes is a great program for managing your music library and your iPod, but not everything we want out of our music can be done on an iPod or computer. Sometimes we still have to do things the old-fashioned way (You know, the way we did in 1999). Sometimes, our needs can only be met by burning CDs.
If that’s the case, iTunes has you covered with a simple process to help you create the CD mixes you want.
To burn a CD in iTunes, begin by creating a playlist. This playlist can be an exact duplicate of an album that already exists in your iTunes library or it can be a mix of songs from the library.
NOTE: Despite the restrictions that the DRM used at the iTunes Store places on the number of computers you can play a purchased song on, there is no similar limitation on burning those songs to CD. You are limited, however, to 5 CDs from the same playlist.
