    Hi, How do I back up my music from iTunes onto CDS?

    First go to preferences (apple+comma), go to burn tab and check the "data CD" button.

    Next, make a new playlist of all the songs you want to back up (you can use a smart playlist of everything since a certain date or whatever), or apple+a to select all and drag to a new playlist.

    Then click the burn button in the top right corner. It says the amount of space that is being used up at the bottom of the iTunes window. Remember you can fit roughly 650MB onto one CD or 4.7GB onto a DVD (if you have a superdrive).

    If your playlist doesn't fit on a single CD, iTunes will ask for you to insert multple CDs during burning.
