    This may be an incredibly naive set of questions but...

    do most people use iTunes for ripping CD's? - I do.
    - If not, then what and why?

    why do people not burn CDs with iTunes (using Toast or Burn instead)? - I use Burn as advised.

    Is it better to create .bin/.cue files when ripping and then burning.

    Is there a comprehensive Help for Burn anywhere? I need a step by step for most things!! (in the first instance at least)

    Yup - I use iTunes. I've played around with various other things, but iTunes does what I need with minimum fuss, so I stick with it.

    Beats the hell outta me. I burn Audio CDs with iTunes on a regular basis (mostly to feed the CD changer in my car). Never had a problem. I own Toast and use it for other things, but not audio.

    Didn't know they didn't use iTunes. If they don't they are wasting their time if you ask me.

    Only if you like wasting time.
