For our third method, we’re going to be teaching you how to burn a CD on a Windows computer using the iTunes software. Now, iTunes is not traditionally a Windows program, but it will function as one nonetheless. You’re going to have to download it from the Apple website and install it. Do so first before anything else, as it might take a couple of minutes (up to a couple of hours) depending on the speed of your internet.

Step One: Create a Playlist

This method is more convenient for people who already use iTunes regularly. That way, you won’t have to go through the trouble of making a new playlist. If you’re not a regular iTunes user, then you have to create a playlist just for the audio that you want to burn. Do this by selecting said audio from your iTunes library, right-clicking, and then clicking Add to Playlist > New Playlist.
