Q: I am unable to join CD tracks as I did in previous versions of iTunes. The menu command to join tracks is no longer in the Advanced menu. How can I do it?
The command has been moved from the Advanced menu to the Options button, near the top-right of the iTunes window, which you see when you insert and click on a CD. If you click the Options button, you’ll see the Join CD Tracks command.
Note that the command only shows up if you’ve selected tracks to join. This is a bit confusing, and would probably be more helpful if iTunes showed the command dimmed than hide it when it’s not available.
Also, it only works if tracks on the CD are sorted by the leftmost column, as you can see in the screenshot. In other words, when you insert a CD, don’t change the sort order.
