    While trying to fix my multiple iTunes 7 issues, i came upon over 2GB worth of files in User>>Library>>Cache>>iTunes. They are called "CD Burn 1" "CD Burn 2" and so forth.
    There are 8 of them, 5 of which are empty, but the other three are each over 700MB, not coincidentally I think, the size of... a CD!

    Anyway, how did these get here, and can I erase them without adding to my considerable problems?


    Powerbook G4
    OSX 10.4.7
    iTunes 7, which is not working correctly

    I erased it and don't seem to have suffered as a result.

    For future reference, you can erase anything in that folder but it's best to have the relevant app closed whilst you remove the files. If you're not sure whether to delete something straight away, then just drag it to the Trash where it cannot be accessed by an app, open the app and see if you get any problems. You don't have to empty the Trash straight away. :)
