    Hello everyone,

    I have a really basic (I'll use that word because I can't say ****) CD player in my car. No USB access or anything similar for my iPod Touch.

    All of my audio CDs are in storage at my parents' place. The music's all ripped to Apple Lossless on my iMac. Is there a way of extrapolating ALAC back to the format it came from (I'm assuming there is, if it's truly a 'lossless' codec...) and burning that to CD so that I can listen in the car?

    yes as music files on CD's are usually AIFF or WAV which are lossless and so will have no quality loss from ALAC.

    in iTunes make a playlist and burn that playlist with CD quality set in the bottom right corner instead of mp3 or something other.

    Oh! I can do it in iTunes, can I...?!

    Sorry. I used the iTunes help facility to search for relevant topics, but couldn't find anything. I just assumed, therefore, that it wasn't in there.
