What songs did you try to record?  What media were you trying to record them on?  What option did you use in iTunes?

The iTunes program can burn music CDs.  You can check in Preferences to make sure your Burner is selected and also make sure you have compatible media in the drive.

Do you have any other music "playing" software installed AND running like Real Player, etc?  If they are running when iTunes is open then I have seen cases where iTunes can't use the burner.  I had thought the error was a little different in those cases though.  The solution may need a restart but you just have to make sure the other programs aren't running and don't have something that starts automatically with Windows.

It will also help to know what OS you are running.

I was able to find an solution. I am running MS Vista. I just installed a new DVD-RW. That was not the problem. iTunes has an different download, that keeps you from burning to any cd. The software that I used was from Applian Technologies, called Replay Music 3. It is an very good software. To anyone else who have this problem, I would suggest Applian Technologies.

BTW -  Itunes does NOT prevent you from burning a CD.  There must have been a settings issue or something else.
