Burning Watchtower’s and Awake’s on to CD’s and MP3 CD’s

(Revised 7/10/2014)


The organization has provided MP3 CD’s for the use of the congregation. However, they also provide an online version as well. Every penny counts when it comes to the distribution of our literature. By burning your own CD, we help our brothers spend les money in printing magazines or books for the public. In this tutorial, I will teach you how to burn your Watchtower and Awake to a CD or MP3 CD.

This tutorial was created on a MacBook Pro but it is applicable to Windows and other Apple computers.

In this tutorial, we are going to use Magazines as a template. However, you are able to apply this tutorial to Books, Music, Dramas, etc.


  • iTunes

    Sorry for the late reply, the music must be in your itunes library first by dragging it into the music library first, then into the playlist.
