Quick Navigation: How to Burn Songs from iTunes to CD on PC?

Determine Audio CD, MP3 CD or Data CD before Burning

Before we get started to burn CD from iTunes, first of all, you should determine which CD type you want to burn, Audio CD, MP3 CD or Data CD.

Audio CD: just like a music CD you purchased in the music store, which can play on a computer with a CD drive, standard CD player, car CD player, etc. (the most popular choice for the majority of people)

MP3 CD: as its name says, it stores a collection of compressed MP3s only playable on MP3-capable CD players or car stereos that support MP3 playback. (chosen by a small group of people)

Data CD: more like the USB flash drive or external hard drive, which is used for file transfer, storage or backup without any third-party tool, simply copy and paste directly. (considered by few people)

Preparatory Work before iTunes CD Burning

1. A blank recordable CD-R disk (never used). A CD-RW disk is not recommended for this process, as they don't always play when inserted into a CD player.

2. An internal/external CD/DVD drive burner that can read, write and burn CD disk.

3. The latest version of iTunes for Windows 10.

Step 2 - Create a Playlist in iTunes

You're not allowed to burn a CD directly from your iTunes library, so firstly, you have to create a playlist in iTunes. Hold "Ctrl" key to multi-select music files you want to burn, right-click your mouse and select "Add to Playlist" in the context menu, then create a "New Playlist".

Note: The number of songs a CD can hold depends on the format of the music files and the capacity of the CD. You can fit about 74 minutes of music on a 650MB audio CD, or about 150 MP3 files on the same size CD. Some CDs can contain 700MB of music.

Step 4 - Configure Burning Settings

Right-click on the playlist, select "Burn Playlist to Disc" option. On "Burning Settings" window, select "Audio CD" and customize "Preferred Speed", "Gap Between Songs", "Use Sound Check" and "Include CD Text" as you wish.

Note: To burn an MP3 CD, make sure all the music files must be in MP3 format. If there are some tracks in other formats like WAV, M4A, etc., you need to convert to MP3 format before you burn them on a CD.

Step 5 - Start Burning CD from iTunes

Finally, click "Burn" button to burn songs onto a CD from iTunes. Eject CD disk when the burning process is complete.
