Can you tell me how to download music from iTunes onto a CD?

Asked by desiree333 (3206points) May 19th, 2010

I’m having a party, and I need music, but I don’t know how to burn CD’s off of iTunes or Limewire. Can you give me some sort of step-by-step instructions on how to do it?

P.S I don’t want my whole iTunes library on the CD, just select songs I want to be playing.

Step 1: Go to “File/New Playlist.”
Step 2: Name the playlist (well, this is optional really.)
Step 3: Drag the music you want from your library on to that playlist.
Step 4: Insert a blank CD, and with that playlist still open, click the “Burn Disc” button in the bottom right corner.

@squidcake Thanks! Do you happen to know if I can burn music onto a DVD-R disc?

@desiree333
Yes, you can, but I’m pretty sure if you put it on a DVD-R disc it would just be a data disc, meaning the files will be there if you put in on another computer and opened them up but you can’t just stick it into a CD-player or a stereo because it wouldn’t play.

@okay, I’ll just try it in my DVD player and see if it works.

@desiree333 If you have a Mac you can use iDvd to easily burn music, videos, and slideshows onto DVDs.

itunes is definitely the best way to burn music. There are other programs depending if your on a pc or mac. Toast titanium on mac or windows media player on pc, but itunes is definitely the easiest. squidcake’s step by step guide is dummy proof.

@rawrgrr No, I don’t have a Mac.
