Burning CDs

If your Macintosh includes a CD-R drive or SuperDrive, you can write, or burn, files onto blank CD-R media. This is a great way to archive important files that you don’t need on your computer’s hard disk and to share files with other computer users.

Tips

  • This part of the chapter provides one technique for burning a CD with the Finder’s Burn Disc command. You can also burn CDs or DVDs from within iTunes, iDVD, or other third party utilities, such as Roxio Toast. iTunes and iDVD are discussed in Chapter 11.

  • Mac OS X 10.2 offers additional options for burning CDs. For example, the dialog that appears when you insert a blank CD enables you to choose the application you want to use to burn the CD (Figure 57) and the Burn CD command displays a dialog that enables you to select a burn speed (Figure 62).
