I want to export (burn to CD) some media I own and have in iTunes. However, I do not want to burn it to a physical CD. I want to instead burn it to a virtual CD. A virtual CD is something that appears to iTunes as a real physical CD but is in reality just a file on the HDD of my iMac. I prefer to do this without purchasing any software.
I know there are commercial products like Virtual CD-RW by BurningThumb. However, at US$30 or more, I can't justify the expense. In Linux, utilities like this are freely available. Surely, there must be something similar for Mac OS X; however, I haven't been able to find it. I can use the terminal and I don't mind a command line tool, as long as I can burn a playlist in iTunes to the virtual CD drive I set up.
