Introduction: How to Transfer Large Amounts of Music Using ITunes

This is a technique that I use when giving someone a large amount of music for their library or when I am backing up my library. Essentially you transfer just the files, keeping the size of the files down.

~~IF YOU WANT TO PLAY MUSIC IN A CD PLAYER THIS INSTRUCTABLE IS NOT FOR YOU, THE DISC(S) BURNT IN THIS TUTORIAL WILL NOT BE PLAYABLE IN A CD PLAYER~~

--- I use this technique only for backup of my music library. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY TROUBLE THAT YOU GET IN FOR UNSING THIS TECHNIQUE AGAINST THE LAW. Thank you and that is all ---

Step 1: Preperation

Materials Necessary:

- iTunes (with a music library)
- a CD or DVD burn drive (built in to many computers)
- Blank CDs or DVDs

Step 2: Create a Playlist

Create a playlist containing all the songs you would like to transfer.

Step 3: Burn Settings

Once you have your music in a playlist click "Burn Disk"

In the menu that comes up select "Data CD or DVD"

Click "Burn"


Step 4: BURN!

Insert your Blank Disk and you are on your way!

Step 5: Further Information and Notes

This disk will only be able to be used on a computer.

Keep in mind that CDs are usually 700 mb and DVDs are usually 4.7 GB
