    I would like to backup my iTunes library to CD's, but I have a lot of movies in my library that I don't want to back up (and I don't have a Super Drive to do it anyways). Is there any way to back up only my music library?

    Create a smart playlist, say "kind" contains audio.

    Set burning options to data disc

    burn your audio playlist to disc.

    If it's bigger than one disc you'll get prompted...

    Thanks. So, I guess it's just burning a playlist to a disc rather than using the menu option for backing up the library...

    Can you even Backup iTunes Movies/Music Videos/TV Shows? Or where these your own "Ripped DVDs"?
