iTunes 11 won't let me burn a CD.


I received an mp3 from a friend and imported into iTunes 11. I want to burn it to a CD so I can listen to it while driving. Following directions in "help", it said that the burn option would not appear if I was not authorized to copy it that way. Sure enough, the option did not appear in any menu after inserting a new disc.

I took the file to my wife's Snow Leopard machine and imported into iTunes 10, and it allowed me to burn a CD without problems.

The file came with graphics and info embedded, but I couldn't find any mention of copy restrictions.

Is there any way to tell iTunes 11 to calm down?

Maybe deleting (dragging to the TrashCan but deleting just yet) the iTunes Preference in ~/Library/Preferences/ and see if that helps. After that I am not sure. Plus check if the finder still can burn a disk or not to see if is just iTunes or System wide or a bad drive.

If move that iTunes file didn't help then you could always put it back.

Good Luck.
