Burn Playlist to CD in iTunes

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

I used to be able to burn CDs using iTunes.

However, I updated my iTunes awhile back and now whenever I try to burn a disc, I get a message telling me that if I want to burn items on the disc, to select the playlist that contains the items and then choose File > Burn Playlist to Disc.

The only problem is, on the new iTunes program there is no “File” option. At least not that I can see.

Thank you so much. Retha

Dear Retha,

iTunes seems to be better at updating the program than updating the directions or help file.

However, I do have an answer for you to help with burning your playlist to a CD.

Just right-click on the name of your playlist and in the context menu, click on “Burn playlist to disk”.

You don’t even need to find the file menu.
