Hi guys just wondering if anybody could explain how i can make an MP3 CD? Is it possible to do this through iTunes or do i need some extra piece of software? The main problem is i am used to making CD's on a windows PC with nero or other such software.

Any help is greatly recieved.

Download the free "Burn" app from here:

Burn

Read the help file to get an idea of how to burn an audio disk including MP3. It's not as good as Nero or Ashampoo, but it's free and does the job.

Regards.

You can also use iTunes, but they have moved the burn button and the burn options now appear when you create a playlist and press the (now moved) burn button

I find iTunes is generally much easier, plus no extra software needed.


Press any key to continue, or any other key to cancel.

Burning an mp3 cd is simple. Just burn the mp3's to a disk as a data disk, because that is really all they are. Now if your wanting to burn a "music" cd that is a different horse, but an mp3 cd is just a data disk and your player or computer will just read it like regular.

A music style cd can only hold from 15 to 20 songs, but an mp3 disk can hold probably a couple of hundred songs depending on the song length of course.

Right click...anywhere. Select new burn folder. Put the MP3s in that folder. Burn. There you go.
