    iMac running iTunes 12.4.1.6, I don't see a way to burn songs which was available on earlier versions. Any ideas or am I just blind?

    I don't know if there was ever another way but, create a playlist of what you want on the CD. right click on the playlist (sidebar), pick "burn playlist to disc". that brings up a dialog to create the kind of disc you want (audio, CD etc.).

    iTunes-- File-- Burn playlist to disc. Make sure your disc is inserted in the Mac.

    Thanks to all for your suggestions.

    How many minutes of music might a DVD hold?

    It depends on the song file sizes. I did a quick Google search for your question. Here is a link that has a breakdown of the factors (see Mike C's Best Answer).

    This is odd.My Panasonic DVD players will not recognize a burned disc has been inserted, but a DVD player in my friends' Mercedes plays the CDs and a music-only DVD. WTF?

    Okay

    My next idiotic question! How can I import the sound from a video DVD? Just the soundtrack. iTunes is ignoring the DVD, and DVD Player launches.

    You need something like rogue amoeba audio hijack. To extract he audio from the source you want into a digital recording.

    Hello

    That looks pretty cool. Record DVD to a file, then import to iTunes?

    Yep, that's right, you "hijack" the sound of a movie to a sound file, then import it onto iTunes.
