Hello  O Wise Ones, have not been here for a while and just found and downloaded the latest version, so that is  good.
I came on here to ask  about copying  some of my  music to a CD so I can give it to my daughter. She bought me Pink Floyd's Endless River for Christmas, and as a thank-you I would like to share a few tracks of my music with her -but...She uses itunes and has an iPod thingy. Most of my tunes are either mp3 downloads from Amazon, or  CD tracks converted to .flac. Is there anything I need to know, or do, or can I just copy or burn them to a CD and they will work for her either on the computer or with the iPod, or both?
thank you and happy new year.

Burning from within MB is really quite simple.  You do need to decide whether to burn an audio CD or a data CD, but either one should be seen by her computer.  Once the tracks are on her computer, she'll be able to get them to her iPod.

EDIT:  I'm assuming your daughter is -not- using MB on her computer.  If she uses iTunes for syncing to her iPod she'll have no problem.

Except iTunes doesn't properly support FLAC files, so you'll need to convert those to a different format if you choose to create a data CD.
Bee excellent to each other...
