Step by Step Guide: How to Burn Apple Music to CD

We all take it for granted that burning Apple Music to CD is an easy thing to do just like burning iTunes songs to CD. However, the fact is that you might come across with these awkward situations when trying to burn Apple Music to CD via iTunes. For example:

Situation 1: Cannot Find “Burn Playlist to Disc” Option

When you launch iTunes and create a new playlist with your desired Apple Music songs, you are not able to find the “Burn Playlist to Disc” option when right-clicking the playlist.

Situation 2: “Some of the files cannot be burned to an Audio CD” Error

After you create a playlist with MP3 songs, M4A files and Apple Music tracks in iTunes, you can right-click on the playlist and select “Burn Playlist to Disc” button to start burning a CD. But seconds later, an error message saying “Some of the files cannot be burned to an Audio CD. Do you still want to burn the remainder of this playlist?” will pop up.

Why would these happen?

Before Apple Music launched, you can buy music tracks in .mp3 or .m4a format in iTunes store. You are allowed to burn those purchased music to CD disc with iTunes, based on the rule of “buy once, own forever”. But nowadays all tracks you bought from Apple Music are in DRM-protected .m4p format, that’s why people are unable to burn encrypted Apple Music to CD.
