I have a list of 89 songs that I tried to bur from a playlist on itunes.
The error says that 69 of those songs need to be in MP3 format.
I chose the ACC version (????) and converted the 89 songs.
I tried to burn again, but no luck. Same message.
Hey, even Microsoft's program lets you burn directly.
What do I need to do?
Thanks,
Mike

It sounds like you've chosen the option to burn an mp3 disc. If you want to burn a CD of a playlist with various file formats, just choose the option to burn Audio CD instead. These will play in most audio CD players. (When you choose the mp3 disc, all songs must be in MP3 format prior to burning...iTunes won't convert them for the CD.)

    Okay, heres what I got so far...the ACC will not convert to MPEG.
    Even though I check the buttons and ran all the song through it.
    It won't let me.

    If you just burn an Audio CD, you don't need to convert them at all.

    As to converting...if they are protected AAC files, you can't convert them. Otherwise, you need to make sure your Import setting is set to MP3, then select a track and choose the convert option. It should convert it whatever the Import setting is currently set to.

    Also...be advised that an Audio CD will not likely hold 89 songs.

    I have a Fulifilm 80 minute CD-R Audio disc that holds 216 Beatles songs. I made it a couple of years ago, but obviously forgot which options I used.
    It is a CD disc and not a DVD type disc. I did get to convert the songs to MPEG files. Still it shows an error. I think the options the burner has is not descriptive enough. I am forced to take this computer to an Apple store. Thanks for all the help.

    Duh? I converted them to MPEGs and then it worked.
    Maybe because it was so simple that it was so hard to figure out.
    I had no clue that there was difference, and didn't even know it existed, between an MPEG and an ACC file.
    Thanks,
