    For some reason, I can't get my blank CD icons to show up on the desktop. However, when I'm in iTunes, I'm able to burn a music CD (or mp3 disc - in other words, I can do anything with the blank CD through and only with iTunes)

    And yes, I have my Prefs (hard discs, CDs/DVDs/and iPods/Connected Servers) checked...

    At first, I thought it was the brand of CDs I was using (HP), so I returned them and picked up a pack of SONY CDs...

    Someone, anyone, please help. I mean, this is not intentional, right? What ever happened to a good ol' disc icon where i can just drag stuff in it?

    Thanks in advance!

    P.S. I'm obviously new here; sorry that my first post is a "help" one...

    I've never had blank CD-Rs show up on my desktop and I've always thought that was just the way it was. I don't remember being able to drag and drop to burn a blank CD. Was this ever possible?
