I am trying to burn a specific album in iTunes. All the tracks total less than 74 minutes, I have burned before no problem, I am using the latest version of OSX with the latest version of iTunes. I have 512 MB of ram. What happens is it "prepares" the whole CD, then it says "Canceling CD burn..." before it even touches the cd, then it spits out the cd and says, an unknown error occured (-39). Anyone know what is going on?
My only Idea is one of the tracks is bad, but it completely finishes preparing them all then I get the error, so I have no idea which it might be, and they all play just fine.

You might try Toast Titanium for OS X. It is free at www.roxio.com.

Got it, tried it, it seems to have its own errors that prevent me from doing pretty much anything

You might be right in that one of the tracks is bad. The -39 code is Unexpected End Of File reached. Try re-encoding the album. Of course if you are just to copy a CD, you would be much better of sound-wise by NOT encoding to MP3 first...
