Burning Audible audiobooks to CD actually isn't so difficult to handle. If you want to know that, we will teach you two effective ways to burn Audible audiobooks to CD.

Some Audible audiobooks actually have been DRM encrypted calling for privacy prevention. These protected files thus can only be played on some specific devices or software, and cannot be easily copied and burned. That's why you cannot burn Audible to CD with the normal CD burner. If you want to burn the DRM-protected Audible files to CD, there are two available ways for you, one being the iTunes application, the other being a third-party DRM removal.


Part 1. How to Burn Audible to CD with iTunes

Audible has only authorized iTunes to burn the DRM-restricted Audible audiobooks to CD. So you can directly use your iTunes to burn quite a lot of Audible audiobooks to the CD without any difficulty. Here are some steps to use iTunes to burn Audible to CD.

Step 1. Download and install the latest iTunes version.

Step 2. Click the "Book" icon and then click the "My Audiobooks" option.

Step 3. Now right-click the audiobook title that you want to burn, and then click "Add to Playlist" >"New Playlist".

Step 4. Insert a blank CD into the CD drive of your PC and wait for recognition completion.

Step 5. Right-click the newly-created Audible audiobook playlist and then choose "Burn Playlist to Disc". Here you could adapt the burning settings. You can set them as follow.

  1. Preferred Speed:8x

  2. Disc Format:Audio CD

  3. Gap Between Songs:None

Step 6. All set, now you could click "Burn". But if your audiobooks playlist is longer than 80 minutes and you, iTunes will prompt when you need to add a new CD.

Yet you have used iTunes to burn Audible audiobooks to CD, but there are still some restrictions for this function.

1. You need to upgrade your iTunes to the latest version.

2. DVD or MP3 disc is not supported by Audible burning.

3. A bad inconvenience is that each audiobook can only be burned for one time with iTunes. That is, you cannot burn the once-burned audiobooks even if you lost the CD by accident.

Part 2. How to Burn Audible to CD with DRM Removed

So is there any way that can get rid of such annoying limits when burning Audible audiobooks to CD? Here a feasible way is to make those special Audible AA/AAX files available with the DRM stripped.
