    Hi all

    Can anyone help me, I currently have some 12000 songs on my itunes libary & I want to burn some CD's off for the car. I so how managed a few years ago to get about 250 songs on a normal CD (no idea how!)

    I've just tried to do it today, but can't remember how I shrink the songs down to MP3 compatable ones.

    & yes my car does play MP3 CD's!!

    Help, I'm going away this weekend & need to do some tunes for the ride

    You need to go to Preferences and then visit Import Settings. In there you choose the settings that iTunes encodes songs from CDs with, so select MP3 Encoder and choose the bit rate you want. Then OK those settings. Select the songs you want to convert, go to Advanced in the menu bar and click Convert to MP3. Hope that works for you.
