    Is it possible to create a disk image of a BLANK CD that is recognizable by iTunes? Specifically so that when i click "burn disc", iTunes recognizes the mounted .dmg or .cdr image and allows me to burn music to it?

    Trying to do a quick work around for "burning away" the .m4p protection so that i can reimport it as .mp3 and supsequently create my own ringtones with the new files.

    I only have 2 CD's on hand and i don't want to waste them on this.

    I don't think you can, without writing your own kernel extension :eek: ;)

    I found an answer to my own question - sweeeeet!

    in case anybody needed the same, this program mounts a blank cd to your desktop that iTunes recognizes and you can then "burn music" to.

    Free version limits files to 3minutes long but for my purposes, that usually is good enough

    Or pay a little bit to have it at twice the bit rate and no drm?

    Actually, you can increase the bit rate with the trial version :)

    $40 isn't a little bit... well it is in :apple:
