Copy tracks from iTunes 7 to Toast via the artwork box Apps
I often burn CDs of MP3s to play in my car stereo, and I use Toast to do this, as it is easily able to create the required folder structure for easy browsing in the car.

With iTunes 6, I would highlight a track, right-click and select Show in Finder from the pop-up menu. Then I would drag the tracks to Toast. Now in iTunes 7, I can just drag the Album Art box (whether there is artwork or not) to the Toast window and it is all done for me.

[robg adds: I don't have Toast, so I can't verify this one. I did try dragging the artwork to a Burn Folder in the Finder, but that just resulted in a picture clipping, as you might expect.]

I couldn't get this one to work. I'd drag the artwork to the toast window (in Data mode), but nothing would happen. What I've always done is simply drag the tracks themselves from the iTunes window to Toast. That always seemed to work for me.

you can simply drag any selected track(s) from iTunes directly to toast for mp3 cd or audio cd. that's no need to "show in finder" or drag the artwork. i think it's true since the first day of iTunes, since that's normal behaviour in mac os

I don't quite get it, too.

And commenter #2, you missed the point, it's about preserving the folder structure and not throwing all MP3s into one folder (= CD root folder).

The hint is saying that if you use the second view in iTunes 7 (grouped by albums, showing the cover art), dragging the cover art is equivalent to selecting all the tracks and then dragging them. saves a few steps.

also great for just dragging songs around in iTunes. rather than shift-select the album, just drag the image. nifty!

It works with the big artwork images in the 3rd view mode too.

To Rob and the rest: You can actually copy from iTunes to a burn folder. Just drag the album from the cover flow browser or the cover list browser (not the item image) and all the songs will be copied to the folder. Amazing and great!

I thought that was maybe what the OP meant: drag the album picture that you see in a the Cover Flow-style views. That works for me, even dragging to a folder in Finder. Copies the whole album. Nice!

Toast 7 Media Browser
Authored by: leamanc on Oct 08, '06 06:43:17AM

If you have Toast 7, why not just use its Media Browser? You can drag songs from your iTunes Library/playlists right into the Audio CD window, without even having to have iTunes open.
