The first part shows you how to burn MP3 to CD using Windows Media Player, while this tutorial explains on how to burn MP3 CD in iTunes.
By using iTunes, you can burn an MP3 CD. Before getting started, make sure you have everything ready. What we need includes iTunes, DVD/CD Burner, Blank writable CDs, and of course MP3 files. So here’s the detailed guide:
1. Download iTunes. If you haven’t done so, visit Apple’s official site and search iTunes for downloading. Or you can click here to download iTunes. It’s absolutely freeware.
2. Create a playlist. You can click “File” and then select “New Playlist” to do this. Alternatively, you can click the plus (+) sign in the lower-left corner of the interface. Name the playlist whatever you want.
3. Now you may add MP3s to the playlist. Click on the playlist, you can now drag music from your iTunes library directly into that playlist.
4. Edit preferences. On the top tool bar, select “Edit” and choose “Preferences” from the drop-down list. On the preferences screen, click the “Advanced” tab, followed by the Burning tab. Select the box next to MP3 CD to set the disc format. Click OK to save and exit the preferences. As you can see, there are also other options: Audio CD, Data CD or DVD.
5. When you are happy with your playlist, you can burn MP3 to CD. Insert the blank recordable CD into your writer, right-click your playlist and select "Burn playlist to disc."
6. Now you may wait for the burning process. Once done, eject the CD and you will be able to insert your MP3 CD into a computer or a CD player and listen to. Have fun.
1. iTunes will scan the playlist to determine whether it can fit on the CD. If not, iTunes will pop up the error window shown below. In that case, you may burn your playlist on more than one CD (the MP3 CD button) or go back (the Cancel button), remove songs, and try burning again.
2. CD-Rs (CD-recordable) are WORM (write once, read many) media. This means that once you burn a file onto a CD, you cannot erase it. CD-RWs (CD-rewritable) are like huge-capacity floppy disks. They allow users to add and delete files over and over.
3. To burn iTunes movies/videos to DVD disc, you have to remove DRM from iTunes first and then use DVD Creator to burn iTunes to DVD.
