Burning a CD in Finder produces a data CD (i.e. not an audio CD) that can only be read by a computer. For making an audio CD, do the following:
1. Open the disc you burned in Finder
2. Select the AIF files, and drag them into an empty playlist in iTunes.
3. Make sure the tracks are arranged in the correct order.
4. At the bottom right corner of your iTunes window, there should be a button that says "Burn Disc." Insert a blank disc and press that button.
You can also convert those AIF files to AAC, and and keep them in your iTunes library, or burn them to an audio CD. However, converting to AAC does result in a measurable loss of sound quality, so it’s better to stick with AIF when burning to CD.
