My family recently purchased a new iMac to replace our archaic/piece of garbage PC. It's only been hooked up for a month or so, but today was the first time that I tried to burn a .mp3 CD (using files from iTunes, which I copied off of a new CD I bought two days ago.) Since I've imported the CD, I've listened to it twice, without any issues whatsoever. However - when I burned the files to a CD-R (twice, actually, using two moderately different methods,) the two CD players I tried listening to it in both couldn't read the disc. The first disc (in a car CD player) showed one track and it was silent. The second one I burned kept making a popping noise and also only showed one track, in a regular CD player/radio. I've owned a MacBook Pro for about 4-5 years now and have burned music and data CDs using it. I always went to Finder, selected the files and asked it to burn them by either compiling them in one folder or highlighting them and then right clicking/asking it to burn the selected files. The first time I tried to burn it today, I went to iTunes (through the Finder) and right clicked the folder, then asked it to burn it to disc. The second time, I highlighted all 13 songs in that folder and then right-clicked/asked it to burn all of the highlighted files. Both times, it burned surprisingly fast (I only selected 16x, which isn't the fastest speed available.) Any idea of what the issue could be? I called the company I bought the computer from (it's a company that deals with the government to sell computers to families with special needs children,) and the guy said he burns things the same way without any issues. I'm to call tech support after the long weekend. I was just hoping to have the CD to listen to on vacation, which is kinda frustrating. I don't really want to take the original to risk it getting damaged. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
