I'm finally being a smart boy and backing up my iTunes library to disc. This will take approximately 22 discs and maybe a couple of hours.
What I didn't count on was the fact that a lot of this time and space includes the backing up of all of my podcasts.
Music: 5.98 GB
Podcasts: 8.86 GB
This seems entirely unnecessary to me.
And now after 5 discs burned, it doesn't even seem to be trying anymore. It just spits the blank discs back out within seconds of me closing the tray without doing anything to them.
I'll abort and come back to this later. After ditching over 8 GB of podcasts.
