Why are my music tracks when burned to CD from iTunes thru the Playlist feature shorter than the originals? I have tried on multiple albums all with the same result. A song might be 4:58 in iTunes and when I burn a CD, the song is now 2:58. There does not appear to be any logic on the difference, just that the entire song does not copy. This does not happen with all songs, just random ones. Typical 5-8 minutes of music is deleted from several tracks. It is not an issue of capacity on the CD. I am well under the limit there.
That is odd. The only thing I can think of is that perhaps the start/stop times of some individual songs have been changed. Try this
- Find a song that this happened to
- Get Info on it (right click on the song in iTunes and select Get Info)
- Click the "options" tab near the top of the Get Info window
- Check and see if the start and stop times have been changed. Start should be "0:00" and end should be the full length of the song in minutes and seconds.
If those times are set incorrectly the songs will be clipped/truncated when playing, creating an AAC version of the song or burning to CD.
If that is not it... well sorry I don't know
