Create CDs and DVDs in Music on Mac
You can create these types of discs in Music:
Audio CDs: You can play these discs on any standard CD player.
MP3 CDs: You can play these discs on MP3-capable CD players or your computer. To burn an MP3 CD, all the songs on it must be in MP3 format. If your playlist includes songs in other formats, such as songs purchased from the iTunes Store, you need to convert them to MP3 format before you can burn them on a CD.
Data CDs and DVDs: You can use these discs to store and transfer files.
Create a CD or DVD
In the Music app on your Mac, create a playlist that contains the songs or files you want to burn to the disc.
Choose View > as Songs and make sure the items you want to include have a checkmark beside them.
If you don’t see checkboxes next to the songs, choose Music > Preferences, click General, then make sure “Songs list checkboxes” is selected.
Insert a blank disc.
Select the playlist, then choose File > Burn Playlist to Disc.
If Burn Playlist to Disc doesn’t appear in the File menu, the playlist you selected can’t be burned to a disc because it contains items with usage restrictions (for example, a song your computer isn’t authorized to play).
Select a disc format.
If you’re creating an audio CD, choose your options:
Change the recording speed: Choose an option from the Preferred Speed pop-up menu.
Change the amount of silence between songs: Select Gap Between Songs.
Set all the songs on the disc to play at the same volume: Select Use Sound Check.
Include information that disc players in some vehicles can display: Select Include CD Text.
It might take several minutes to burn a disc. You can cancel the burn by clicking the Cancel button next to the progress bar, but if you’re using a CD-R or DVD-R disc, you won’t be able to use it again.
If the playlist contains more items than will fit on the disc, insert another disc to continue burning the remaining items.
If you’re creating an audio CD, only the last disc burned includes track information (song title, artist, and album). Songs on the other CDs are identified only by track number (for example, “Track 01,” “Track 02”). See If you don’t see songs in Music.
Print a list of the disc’s songs
In the Music app on your Mac, select a playlist of songs, choose Command-P, then select “CD jewel case insert.”
