    I burned two songs on a CD earlier and now I want to add about 10 more. How can I do this? Can I remove the songs on the CD? Can I overwrite them? Or can I just simply add the songs somehow? iTunes tells me I need a blank CD though... does this mean I just wasted a whole CD?!!!!

    Assuming this is an Audio CD (for use in a CD player, etc.), you can't do it. Each time you burn data to a CD, that's a separate "session". Computers can handle multi-session CD burning and reading, but standard music CD players can only read the first session on any given CD. Even if you set up the CD for multi-session, your CD player won't recognize any new songs you put on the CD.

    And you can't erase or overwrite data on a standard CD... you'd have to use a CD-RW or CD+RW to erase or replace existing data.

    So yes, you just wasted a CD... what's that cost, about 25¢? :rolleyes:

    OK, well then is there another way to get songs from my bro's comp to mine? Both computers are activated under the same account. But whenever one of us gets a song, even if it's the same account, we have to burn the song to a CD so the other one of us can get it. Is this the only way for the same account to share songs on different computers?

    Isn't there a Shared Music option in iTunes somewhere? All you'd have to do is enable that and then make sure the two machines are networked.
