    open itunes, create a new playlist, drag the files there, either from the itunes library or from folders you can see (any drive).

    in itunes > preferences, locate the burning options. select your gap between tracks, if you want the song text tags added, etc.

    click the burn button on the bottom corner of the itunes window.

    looked at your question again, I think what you want is a DVD full of MP3 files, correct? If so, then it's the file system the DVD is burned at when you do this. Your DVD player isn't liking what OS X puts out.

    Try Burn: http://burn-osx.sourceforge.net/Pages/English/home.html

    change the format to Joliet, if I recall correctly.

    so are you trying to mix the 2?

    generally, you should either burn a music disk or a video disk.

    again, if you are just burning a disc full of mp3 tracks & the stereo isn't reading the disk, try the different burn format options in Burn.app.

    Now, if you are trying to make a DVD movie that will work with a player, you can use Burn for that too, you'll have to make a disk with a VIDEO_TS folder.

    what you won't be able to do is burn files which are rented or bought from itunes, these have DRM. As do the old music tracks from iTunes. Neither one of these can be burned to a disk & just played as they are on other systems.

    An audio CD from itunes should play on anything, but certain devices are looking for a specific blank media to use.

    What is your equipment?
