i am trying to burn a disc with 8 .mp3's and one protected aac from itunes. it is not recognizing the burner (or no burning software). i need this cd for a class and couldn't burn it on Roxio (this is on a school PC...HP)
Can you burn it as an audio (not mp3) file? Protected AAC files can be a bit funny if you try and burn them as mp3 discs. If you can burn as audio, do that then rerip as mp3 then try Roxio again. Why does it have to be an mp3 disc out of interest?
Yeah, I got the same problem yesterday when I went to burn a normal music disk but I repaired permissions and restarted and it all worked fine after that. It's pretty weird though, it came straight after iTunes crashed and I had to reopen it - which is a first. Thank God iTunes uses playlists to burn CDs because I just had to throw in another disk and re-burn and it's all fine now.
OH Oh , I know, go into the preferences and make it make it so that it when it imports it imports to say... 128 bit mp3. Click on the file that is protected AAC and go up to a menu, don't know which, and say convert selection to mp3. BAM you can use Roxio. I think the problem is that iTunes on windows doesn't really support too many burner models.
