    Help anybody? My operating system is Windows 10 and I am using the latest iTunes version, 12.3.2; the problem I've encountered is that with some CDs, when I download them into iTunes and call up the downloaded file, only one or two of the tracks are shown in black whilst the rest are greyed out. This doesn't prevent the greyed out tracks being played in iTunes, but if I try and burn those tracks to make a compilation CD, they wont burn. There is no such problem with the tracks shown in black (on the same CD). I've tried re-downloading the CD, but it makes no difference. Any ideas how to resolve this problem gratefully received.

    I would imagine that is because they are copy protected.

    Exactly...it's not like in the old days before copy right protected music where you could simple and easily extract songs from a CD disc.

    That's what my first thought, but I don't think it can be the case because, as I said, some tracks on the same CD can be burned and others can be listened to but not burned.. I would think that either all the tracks would be copy protected, or none of them.

    Not necessarily.
    If they had different authors for the songs, some may have different contracts.
    Each track is a separate file!
