I have always been able to burn cds with itunes until recently. I always do the itunes updates when I am prompted to do so and I do not know after which update this problem began. I finally managed to burn a cd by downloading Roxio and dragging the songs from itunes to Roxio. This obviously proves that the problem is with itunes. It is ridiculous that Apple hasn't fixed this.

imac intel, Mac OS X (10.4.7)

    This obviously proves that the problem is with iTunes.

    Actually, it simply proves that the problem is something with your setup since it works fine on mine and thousands and thousands of other users computers.

    You should update your OS.
    You cannot run iTunes 10 on Mac OS 10.4.7 as shown in your signature.

    What happens when you try to burn a playlist?
    What exact version of iTunes are you running?

    I am trying to solve a problem

    And I am trying to help. You wrote, "This obviously proves that the problem is with iTunes" when it obviously is not the problem.
    I am running 10.6.5

    Your signature still shows 10.6.4.
    If you show the correct info of your system, it will be a lot easier to help out and you won't have to misinterpret what you read from others.

    Running itunes 10 on mac OSX 10.6.5. I move playlist to burn folder and hit burn. The window opens showing the process but it never gets past burning track one. It finishes and finalizes, I eject the disc but it won't play. I am doing nothing different than in the past when itunes worked perfectly in burning CDs. I am now using songs from itunes imported into Roxio to burn CDs.

    I'm having the exact same issue....suddenly can't effectively burn audio CD's when I've always been able to do it before....never shows that it gets passed burning track one. The burned CD will play all songs only on my iMac or on my Mac Laptop, but will not play a thing in my car's CD player where it acts like its blank. Can anyone help with this. What has changed?

    You know how did I get it?

    1. Create a new playlist.
    2. Drag here the songs you want to burn (15-20, depending)
    3. Check in the lower bar how much MB are you going to burn. If it's more than 700MB (the aveeage of a regular cd, remove some some songs until set bit less than 700MB)
    4. Highlight, point to the name of the list on the left hand side (under playlists), Right Click > Burn playlist to CD and get the known features (if you want pause, audio CD, data, etc.)

    Why no icon? Maybe Apple doesn't want to push this funcion, to avoid the reproduction and copies as per music labels request. They keep the burn CD but very discret for the people who ask for it, who really inisist to also avoid the changing of music software. This is what I can deduce from the way we have to Discover the cd burning.

    Anyway, remember that it's useful for Protected songs mostly, otherwise there some old programs (like Roxio) which are more powerful and you can make high end edition, mixings and so on and finally burn.

    IMO, I just made this CD now upon a friend's request. Otherwise I just use USB drives.
