How To Burn an Apple Lossless Music File


What other ways in Windows (besides iTunes) can I burn an Apple Lossless (ALAC) file to an Audio CD?

Roxio does not support it.

If it's smaller than 700 megs burn it to a data CD it retains the current format.
But what players support it?
Burning an audio CD converts it to CDA
With your Roxio choose CD then Data CD.
I use Nero so cant show you Roxio please refer to your manual or use this  for Roxio 2010
Click the “Add” button on the main toolbar and select the “Files” option. Navigate through your folders, select your preferred data file and click “Open.” Insert a blank CD into your computer's disc drive. Click the green right arrow button at the bottom of the screen to burn the data file to disc.
How to Copy a Data File to a CD Using Roxio
This is illustrated with pictures
Copying files to a CD using Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 9
If you just want to transport it elsewhere use a USB stick flash pen
Why do you not burn an audio CD with iTunes?
What Windows OS do you have?
I guess you do not want to buy Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 9

You can burn an audio CD to play in a CD player with the free Roxio Easy Media Creator (DirectX 9 and Windows Media Player 10 or higher required)
You can also burn an audio CD to play in a CD player with Windows Media Player 10 or higher or use the free third party software iCoolPlayer
