I'm from the last century and none of my portable or living room CD player will play a MP3 downloaded track I have burned from iTunes Version 10 6.1 7—64 bit.

 

I have read all the discussions about burning from iTunes but could not find within the program under Preferences-Advanced any 'burning' features. When I perform a burn operation from the CD from a selected song that I have downloaded to iTunes, no problems except that the CD will not play in my antiquated CD players. The CD plays on my computers [MacBook OSX Snow Leopard and iMac OSX Lion].

 

I need guidance to shop for a portable CD player that plays MP3 downloads—not high-ended because of budget constraints. I just need a good one with good volume to teach in Sunday School. That is, I need help in knowing what's out there? [That's how far behind I am in this 'higher-than-high' technological world.] I am using the Maxwell CD-R 700 MBto 48X discs to burn a downloaded MP3 single track from iTunes.

 

Looking forward to everyone's assistance.

 

Thanks!

    You could simply use your MacBook to play the file.

    Where did you donwload this track from?

    If you purchased it from the iTunes store, it is AAC, not MP3.

    Is there some reason you need it as an MP3?

     

    You can easily convert iTunes purchases to MP3 or you can simply burn a regular audio CD that will work in any regular CD player.

     

    See this -> iTunes: How to convert a song to a different file format

    To burn an audio CD, add the song to a playlist, then File > Burn playlist to CD and make sure you select AudioCD.

     

    Also note that older CD players may not even be capable of playing a CD-R or CD-RW (CDs that you burn yourself).
