    Yeah. Could the burn be failing? Try doing it at a slower speed.

    Take a pic of the 2 disks side by side to view any markings on the cd. Personally I use DVD's for anything I burn but thats just me.

    Sage like advice. Ditch iTunes for burning, burn your mix to a CD using a dedicated burning program, also split your mix into tracks for the convenience of the listener.
