    I don't think you can on an audio-disc. As an audio-disc usually goes into a CD player where it's not necessary.

    Oh so the only way i can back up my songs with the artwork is to copy my entire itunes library?

    Why would you burn your iTunes library as audio CDs for backup? If you ever re-ripped from them, you'd be losing quality.

    Just duplicate the files in your iTunes library, meaning your iTunes Music folder, the iTunes Library database and XML, and the Album Artwork folder onto some sort of external storage.

    this is true mostly but some cds do include album artwork, music, programs etc on them. even some modern cds include digital track name information which certain cd players and other devices will display.
