Part 10. Getting an iLife > Burning a Music CD

Burning a Music CD

In iTunes, choose iTunes, Preferences.

Click the Burning button at the top of the window; then choose Audio CD as the Disc Format.

Click the Audio button and click the check box to turn on Sound Check.

Click OK.

INTRODUCTION

You can take your music with you in the form of custom mix CDs for parties, for gifts, or just to use in the car. Before you burn a CD, you need to create a playlist containing the songs you want to use on the disc. And, of course, you need to have a CD drive that can write CDs as well as play them.


TIP

Picture This

Any song you buy from the iTunes Music Store (see the next task) comes with cover artwork. When you burn a compilation, iTunes creates a custom mosaic of the songs' cover art and drops that into a template to create an insert for the CD case.


TIP

The Right Media

Make sure you use CD-R media, rather than CD-RW media, if you plan to play your CD in a regular CD player (meaning, on your stereo) rather than in a computer CD drive.


Click to select the playlist you want to make into a CD.

Click the Burn Disc button.

Insert a blank CD-R disc and click Burn Disc again.
