    Another dumb question. I know that I can rip my own music into iTunes, I haven't tried it yet; after I've got music onto my Mac, would I be able to burn my own collections onto CDs or SD cards? I believe I'm under the impression that iTunes does not like that.

    It' just "another question, " Frank!!!

    I don't do that stuff but I believe you can burn your iTunes music to disk etc. after it's been ripped that I believe iTunes might do when importing the music, and since Steve Jobs basically told the Digital Rights folks to shove it and their immobilizing attempts of the music recording industry.

    The ripping process changes the CD files from one format to another. If your CD player can play MP3 files, then you can burn your own CDs of ripped music to make your own collections. You don't use iTunes to burn the CD, but some other product like "Burn" or Roxio Toast.

    Yes Frank, there are lots of articles about issues with iTunes but that's mostly because it is so heavily used. The app itself us not flawed in any way. It is and always has been the most effective means of storing, cataloguing and playing music that you already own. My music collection dates back to the 60's and is over 80Gb in size. Of course this was all music that I owned in the form of CD's and records. iTunes provided portability on other devices like my iPhone and a safe way to store all my favourite music over decades.
    On the other hand is it the best way to purchase music? I would say no, but that is entirely price related. These days with digital streaming radio stations and the number of online music libraries I find it hard to justify buying music at all.
    I do use Spotify which is free if you don't want to keep the music you listen to. If you wish to download what you listen to a subscription will allow you to keep what you like for offline use so for a fixed price you could download a massive amount of music but you must use the app (which is free) to play it. The trend is leaning towards not owning music these days because of the erroneous assumption that everyone is online all the time. For example my son only has play lists on his phone. The free version of Spotify allows you to save playlists, when you want to play something it is streamed to your device but you don't own it and you can't save it.

    Hmmm…??? I thought something didn't seem correct from what I have read, and sure enough, one can burn ones music to CD right from iTunes itself and your music library, and right from the Apple mothership herself:
    iTunes for Mac: Create your own CDs and DVDs
    You can create these types of discs in iTunes:

    Audio CDs, which you can play on any standard CD player.

    MP3 CDs, which you can play on MP3-capable CD players or your computer. To burn an MP3 CD, all the songs on it must be in MP3 format. If your playlist includes songs in other formats, such as songs purchased from the iTunes Store, you need to convert them to MP3 format before you can burn them on a CD.

    and not much difference from an old article:
    How to Burn a Music CD in iTunes
    http://www.macinstruct.com/node/60

    No need for third-party software with either.

    EDIT:
    And a illustrated method:
