How to Burn an Audio book from ITunes

Even though people use iPods to purchase and listen to audiobooks, it may sometimes prove to be more convenient for them to listen to the audiobooks by copying them to CDs and playing them on their music system. This allows them to not only enjoy the music without completely shutting out other sounds, but will also make it possible for them to easily share what they are listening to with other people.

    After you have updated iTunes, create a new playlist by clicking “File” and then “New Playlist.” Add the audiobook that you wish to burn to a CD to the new playlist by dragging and dropping it from the “AudioBook” folder to the “New Playlist” folder.

    Once the computer is done copying files to the first CD, it will eject the disc. Take it out and replace it with another blank CD. Close the CD drive tray. Do not click anything as the copying process will resume on its own. However, if the computer asks you to confirm anything, do it.

    Continue to replace the CDs that your computer ejects after it is done copying files to them until the entire audiobook is copied to the CDs.
