AnyTrans – Music Manager Between CD and iPhone

Download AnyTrans to easily burn your iPhone songs on CD, but also transfer CD songs to iPhone 8/X/7/6s/6/5s/5/SE/4s easily and quickly.

Every time I open up iTunes, I get a pop up saying:

"iTunes cannot locate CD Configuration folder, so you cannot import or burn CDs and DVDs. This folder must be in the same directory as iTunes."

So I click ok, and iTunes is fine; it plays my songs that I already have in my library. Except iTunes doesn't read, play or import any CDs I try to load in.

Does anyone know how to fix this?
