    My new Acura has an in dash 6 CD changer... and no harddrive and no iPod connector. It plays Audio DVDs, and MP3s.

    Can I put MP3s on a DVD using iTunes?
    Can I use iTunes to burn an Audio DVD?

    In the preferences it lists data DVDs, but not anyother DVD option.

    Is there a good link with a step by step explanation.

    Thanks

    In short: No.

    DVD Audio or DVD-A discs are competely different. They're basically compared to Super Audio CD's (SACD). There's more headroom (0-144dB) on a DVD-A than on a typical CD (0-96dB) and the bitrate is different among other things. It also supports multi-channel audio like DVD's. Think of how DVD's differ from HD-DVD's or Blu-Ray discs. It's similiar with CD's and DVD-A's or SACD's.

    At this time, iTunes doesn't support even the playback of DVD-A's.

    You can make your own DVD-A's using DVD-Audiofile (same maker as xACT):

    It works best if you feed it FLAC files (the program was designed for the live music recording community in which 24/48 or 24/96 FLAC files are becoming more prominent).
