I have lost the word 'Burn' from iTunes 10. Not in 'Preferences', nothing in any file, not even a 'grayed out option'. Forget about complaining about a missing icon.

Yet, I can still burn MP3's from my separate music folder. I need to burn car CDs. What happened?

    If you right-click (control-click) on a playlist, you get the burn option. Also you can burn a playlist by selecting "Burn" in the File menu.

    The button has disappeared, though.

    Exact same problem here!  Until I found out this happens when you have selected a playlist FOLDER instead of a playlist itself!


    Took me a long time (for me) to figure this out.  Of course it didn't help that my iTunes' help system is non-functional.  But that's a problem for another day...

    I see that someone else has figured this out. But since I also went through the agony of discovering it myself, I feel compelled to go through it again, step by step.  In case anyone is as dense as I was:


    (I notice that the person who had the solution says that you should select a playlist, rather than a playlist folder. My situation was the opposite.  If that doesn't work for you, try this...)



    Pull down New (BUT.   Click on Playlist Folder, NOT just Playlist).

    Down the left hand side below are a number of Playlists listed (1 through 20 on my iTunes, for some unkown reason)

    Open one of them

    Drag item to be burned onto this

    Go to File and, EUREKA!, "Burn this disc" appears.


    It should have been easier.  But I'm thankful for small favors.


    Good luck.
