How to Burn iTunes Audiobooks onto a CD?

"I just bought an audiobook on iTunes, and I'd like to listen to it in my car. I created a playlist that contained the audio book, and burned an audio CD. When I put the CD in my car, it just ejects the CD."

Now, many people have purchased iTunes Audiobooks on iTunes Store and wish to burn those audiobooks to CD for enjoying while driving. After all, it's more convenient to listen to Audiobooks by playing CDs on a car. But why we can't burn them to a CD or could burn them to CD but couldn't play the audiobooks in our car stereo?
