    burn through

    Hi there,

    Could anyone tell me what "burn through" mean in the following sentence?

    Thank you.

    "I burned through the entire the Police discography in under two weeks."

    Does it mean to listen all of the Police's music? Or it mean to burn all of its music into a CD kind of stuff? Or it mean neither?

    Thanks again for your kind help.
