"Unable to burn album (to disc) downloaded from iTunes (The track is an Apple Music song and cannot be burned to disc). How can I put my purchased Apple Music on a CD?"
Apple Music combines subscription-based music streaming with global radio-like programming and a social feature that connects artists to fans. Besides that, Apple Music’s library has 30 million songs—the same number as Spotify, though the exact track listings vary.
Can I save Apple Music to listen to offline? Yep! Apple Music lets you save tracks to listen to offline—you can save as many songs as you’d like, as long as your device has space for them. But remember: you won’t own those files and you won’t be able to offload them anywhere else. More importantly! You can’t burn them onto a disc, or put them on other devices that aren't linked to your Apple Music account. Because anything you download from Apple Music's streaming catalog is DRM-protected. Just like every other streaming service, Apple adds a DRM (Digital Rights Management) layer to its streaming music collection. This is the reason that users are unable to burn your Apple Music to CD for streaming in your Car or at home. To get this job done, you should try to use the third party DRM remover such as Sidify Apple Music Converter.
