it's actually not a good idea to convert mp3 (lossy) back to wav/aiff (lossless) format, because if the quality degradation,
but if you absolutely have to do that, just use your CD burning app to burn Audio CD instead of MP3 or Data disc.

iTunes can do it for you, and pretty much every other CD burning app should be able to.

yea, just to clarify if you use roxio, just select under the CD tab the audio CD. if you use itunes, then go edit->preferences->advanced->burning then change the CD type to audio cd. then make a cd as you usually do, just keep in mind the audio cds only take up to 20 songs, typically

It's a waste of time. Just upgrade it so it can play MP3s.

Even converting from ACC to MP3 degrades the sound.
