Nope. You can create a cd with mp3s on it from a play list but cannot 
create an audio cd :-( There was until recently a menu entry to do it 
but the code that actually created the audio cd was missing and no one 
was willing to complete it so it was removed. It shouldn't be too 
difficult to do, most of the code is already there, the only bit that is 
missing is the re-encoding of the files so they are in the correct 
format nearly everything else can be copied from the mp3 cd creation stuff.
