Question

Are these iTunes Music Store tracks? If so they can only be burned to CD using iTunes. Otherwise I'm unclear what is happening. Are you using the Media Browser to add the tracks? Can they be added but not burned?

I have some songs I have downloaded from my own CD collection but most of the songs have been purchased and downloaded from iTunes. For instance, I will make a song file of jazz or country songs that are all iTunes then when I drag them into Toast 8 only about half the songs on the list show up and are ready to burn along with this message: 12 iTunes music store tracks were not added. Only Apple Applications such as iTunes are permitted to burn purchashed content. This makes absolutely no sense to me at all. THEY ARE iTUNES. Toast 8 seems to eliminate 6 or 7 iTunes from my song list. I have been burning CD's on my other G4 Mac for several years with no problems. I upgraded to an iMac last year and bought the hard copy of Toast 8 and have had nothing but problems ever since. Very frustrating and yes I have asked Roxio all the questions and even talked to a tech guy at $1.85 a minute. What a rip off.

Apple prohibits third-party developers such as Roxio from accepting iTunes Music Store downloads. It requires that the DRM be stripped and Apple won't allow it. Meanwhile, Apple will strip DRM from iTunes Music Store downloads when using the iLife applications. You can burn your audio CDs using iTunes but not using Toast. Once you burn an audio CD with iTunes the resulting disc doesn't have DRM so those tracks can be added to Toast (or back to iTunes) and burned without any restrictions.

 

Your solution is to burn those audio CDs using iTunes.

First of all I want to sincerely want to thank you for taking the time to help me solve my music burning CD's problem. First question is what is DRM?. I have now been able to burn a CD directly from iTunes without any songs missing but now the CD I burned will only play on my computer. Not in any other player such as the one in my car or office, etc., etc.. In earlier versions of Toast you had a choice of just Mac or Mac and PC. Can't find that choice anymore. If I can get that fixed then I'll be back in business. Again, thanks so much for your help.

DRM is digital rights management. It is how Apple keeps iTunes tracks from being copied outside of the user license agreement. You probably know it as copy protection.

 

I thought you were burning audio CDs for playing in standard CD players. This is done in the Audio window. Apparently you are burning the tracks in the Data window which makes sense if you are wanting to keep them in their original format. However, the DRM on the iTunes Music Store tracks will still be present. Therefore, those tracks can only be played on a computer that you have authorized. I believe Apple lets you authorize up to five computers (Mac or Windows). You also need to remember to deauthorize a computer that you discontinue using because it'll count against your five even if it has been sent away to a recycler. You probably should check iTunes Help about authorizing and deauthorizing computers so they can play those music store tracks.

 

As I mentioned before you can remove the copy protection from iTunes Music Store tracks by using iTunes to burn them to an audio CD. An audio CD is the format that works in standard CD players. You select this format in iTunes by choosing Preferences and then Advanced and then burning. You'll see that one of the options is Audio CD.

 

Once you have them on an audio CD you can play them on anything that plays regular music CDs. You also can copy the tracks off of the audio CD and use them without any more issues with copy protection.

Thanks soooo much once again. I will give all your suggestions my best shot. As you may have guessed by now i am still pretty much a rookie when it comes to all of this stuff. I just never had any of these problems until now and I have been burning my own CD's for the past four years. Again thank you.

Well I have finally fixed my CD music burning problem. What did I do you ask???. I put Toast 8 in the trash where I also unfortunatly put my $100 bucks for this piece of junk. I don't know how this company stays in business, seems as though Toast 8 is only good for one thing and that is interferring with burning CD's and driving customers nuts!.

Huh? Where'd that come from? Toast doesn't interfere with using other applications to burn discs. It won't burn iTunes Music Store downloads but that is demanded by Apple. As long as you're not trying to burn copy-protected media files Toast does everything Roxio says it will. I don't understand why you're so angry.

if you continue to buy trashy itunes music at 128 you will have the drm problem. But if you buy itunes plus which doesnt have the DRM and is also better quality 256 you wont have problems.

 

BTW I HATE 128 kbps. Even amazon offers better quality. So my recommendation is only to buy itunes plus music from apple.

 

If toast has a problem there is no need to hide it but this is not a problem!!!!
