U.S. McDonald's guests no longer able to burn music on in-store kiosks

OAK BROOK, Ill. (Dec. 8) - McDonald's Corp. has halted a test of in-store kiosks where customers can burn music onto CDs, print out photos from digital cameras, or download ring tones. A spokeswoman declined to say why the test was discontinued, asserting in an e-mail that "customer feedback has been very positive." The devices continue to be tested by McDonald's in Germany, she said.

McDonald's, which operates or franchises 30,000 restaurants worldwide, commenced the domestic test in May at a unit here that was touted as the chain's new flagship.
