    What is the best way to back up my iTunes library to DVD? Do I have to highlight/select the artist-labeled folders within the iTunes folder in the Music folder and the drag them to the "Untitled DVD" icon on my desktop or is there a better/faster way to do it? I've got about 13GB of music so it won't all fit onto one disc--will iTunes split the library automatically when the DVD is full or is that something else I'll have to do?

    In iTunes: File > Back up to disc

    Put in the first DVD, it fills it up, then prompts you to enter a new one.

    Down the line, you can back up everything added since the last back up. It's quick and easy.

    Awesome--thanks. I forgot about the menu bar at the top of the screen and was looking around in the iTunes window for a "burn disc" icon or something similar. DOH!
