    Hi everybody,

    I have Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 x86 and iTunes 8.0.1.11

    I have created a playlist with the songs that I want to burn in a CD-R 700 MB to create an Audio CD.

    How can I know if my songs will fit the resulting Audio CD? Is there anyway to know how many CD-Rs is itunes going to burn with songs in that playlist?

    Or the only way to know is to have a calculator and start adding up the lenght of each song until reach 80 min?

    I know that in the bottom iTunes shows me the total lenght but I still don't know when "the first" disc will end and "the following one" will start

    Any help? Suggestion? Thanks

    Well I would say a safe bet would be to calculate about 4-5 mb per song.

    700 MB isnt for audio files, those cd's hold 80min, so make a playlist that has no more than 80min

    look at the bottom of itunes where it says how many songs is in the playlist adn see how long they all are and if they are less then1.2 hours they will fit on a standard cd-r .

    Duh! But again that's if it's an MP3 cd. If it's an audio cd the size of the MP3 will grow about 5 times to around 20-25 mb or so
