The playlist IS the CD you're going to make. If you wanted to record 1 song to a CD, for instance, and you had 3 songs in the playlist, the easiest thing would be to move (copy) the song you want to an empty playlist, using the "track move" function. You could alternatively delete the other 2 songs from that first playlist (while not actually deleting them from the hard disk). In the playlist, use the track skip button to go past the playlist songs, into the audio files that are actually on hard disk (be careful, if you delete one of these, it's GONE from the drive forever. The ones in the playlist, on the other hand, when deleted, are still on the hard drive as an audio file until it is deleted). Hope this helps!
