You Will Need
- An iTunes library
- And recordable CDs or DVDs
Open your iTunes.
Choose "Back up to disc"
Under File, choose the option "Back up to disc."
Choose back up option
Choose one of the three options given: "Back up entire iTunes library," "Back up only iTunes store purchases," and "Only back up items added or changed since last backup."
When prompted to do so, insert a blank CD or DVD to begin the process.
Insert new discs
Wait for the disc to finish burning and continue inserting new discs as prompted until your entire library is burned.
Store the completed discs. Remember, they cannot be played; they are for restorative purposes only.
