    Anyone know a way to join some songs together that I downloaded from the
    iTunes Music Store?

    If you mean put them into a _single_ sound file, try Amadeus II.

    If you mean put them in a collection to make a CD, look in the
    help files for "playlists"

    Or ask your librarian for "The little iTunes book" by Bob LeVitus

    Yes, that's what I mean. I've been playing around with iDVD and wanted
    to join some tracks, as iDVD seems to only let you use one song per
    slideshow/whatever, but I don't have the original cd, as I downloaded
    the tunes from ITMS. Plus there's the gap issue for concept albums.

    I ran across another suggestion of putting the tracks on a cd and then
    re-importing them joined. I think I'll try that suggeston first as I
    have a pile of unused cd's laying around which may never get used since
    I got an iPod, and am not sure I want to spend $30 on something I might
    only use once or twice.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Actually, I get a message that the tracks are protected and it won't let
    me join them. :-(

    Would that work with purchased iTunes songs? It doesn't seem like it would...

    If you build your "slideshow/whatever" in iMovie you can use as many
    songs as the running time permits.

    I haven't played around much with either iMovie or iDVD. I'll give it a try.

    It didn't. I burned the songs to a cd and then reimported them joined.

    Worked fine, but then I lose one of my ten burns and waste a disk.

    Use CD-RW media and erase it afterword to recover the disc. Modify the
    playlist by removing and retoring an entry to restore the burn count.
