    I running 10.2.8 on flat panel iMac.
    I am using latest iTunes.
    I recorded streaming music with
    "wiretap" software and then
    had iTunes convert it to AAC.
    The iTunes will NOT burn to CD.
    Because it was orignially internet
    radio Apple tech support will not
    help. I get the error message that these files cannot be burned on CD.
    I followed all instructions from Apple
    web support and set preferences
    on iTunes per tech support.
    Anyone have an answer???

    Are you attempting to burn more tracks than the CD will hold?

    I haven't have any problems burning AAC to CD.

    Here is a link to a discussion of AAC issues. Hopefully your answer is there (if you've not already seen this website).

    Good luck.

    burning AAF

    I read that piece but it did not solve
    my problem.

    The file plays fine in iTunes but it
    will not burn.....I click on burn.....I get
    the "checking media" message then
    I get "none of the items in this playlist can be burned to disc" and that ends
    it. when I used a different software
    to burn the result I got was 99% hiss
    on the finished CD, I used 'dragon burn"
    Anyone got some answers?????

    Wiretap

    I just recently downloaded Wiretap and also record live streaming radio from iTunes.

    The only way I could get these streams to cd was to re-assign audio prefs in Wiretap, to the .aif Quicktime setting and have the file saved on the desktop. Then re-import those AIFF files to iTunes, then burn.

    Of course if you have Toast you can avoid using iTunes to burn the disc entirely.
    I hope you get it working...

    aiff file burning

    Thanks for your reply:

    Can you be more specific, tell me
    exactly how I need to change
    the preferences for wiretap. I already
    have it set to quicktime.

    Thanks

    My apologies for being vague, but I too are not sure about your setup as well. So bare with the directions.

    Open WireTap, select preferences;

    File saving setting: select the desktop.
    Recording file settings: QuickTime Player
    Sound Compression settings: None, 44.1kHz, 16bit, stereo.

    This should set up your files for import.

    Open iTunes. Select add to library and add all your desired files. Make a new playlist. Add all the newly imported files and burn.

    *Make sure your discs are compatible. Make sure your time length doesn't exceed the capacity of the disc. If this stuff doesn't work, read everything possible to broaden your computer skills. That's what I do. Cheers! Bmode.

    Solution

    I don't think it's WireTap that's the problem.

    i think iTunes wants to burn an MP3 CD if longer than standard audio, but since you encoded in AAC you have to convert the tracks to MP3 first, then burn to MP3 CD.

    Select MP3 encoding under prefs first, then select tracks and under Advanced menu, select "Convert Selection to MP3"

    Try this: check song names

    I was experiencing the same message ("None of the items in this playlist can be burned to disc", even while trying to burn a regular audio CD.

    The message appeared when I had the playlist selected on the left, then pressed burn.

    I tried checking all the check boxes next to the songs in the list. This allowed me burn the disc.

    It seems like a bug -- why wouldn't itunes just alert me that "no items were selected to burn"?
