Why can't I play the burned disc of my recordings? (Mac)
If iTunes has not been set up to burn discs as Audio discs, it might be making a disc of mp3s instead, which will play fine in a DVD player or computer, but not in a simple CD player.
Open iTunes and then iTunes preferences, which you can access from the iTunes menu in the menu bar, or by holding down Apple and pressing , (comma). Click on the Advanced tab, then the Import tab. Click on the Burning tab and make sure iTunes is set to burn an Audio disc.
To get an audio file that you've saved to your desktop into iTunes, choose Import from the File menu and import the track. Make a new playlist and drag the track from the Library to the playlist, then select the playlist and click "burn disc."
Or, you could drag your audio file into iTunes directly, onto the word "Library." Create a new playlist and drag your recorded songs from the Library to your new playlist, then click "burn disk."
