To create a burn folder, put files inside, and burn it

1.
Open a Finder window and select the window in which you want the burn folder to appear. For instance, single-click on your Home icon in the Sidebar, or single-click the Documents folder icon. Or click on the Desktop, if you want the folder to appear there. (You can always move the burn folder to wherever you like, of course.)

2.
From the File menu, choose “New Burn Folder.”

3.
A folder with the “Burn” icon on it appears in the selected window.

Rename this folder just as you would any folder: Drag over the part of the name you want to replace, then type.

4.
To put a file in the folder so you can burn it later, just drag the original file and drop it into the burn folder. Your Mac will put an alias of the file into the burn folder and the original will stay right where it was.

5.
To burn the folder, first insert a blank CD or DVD.

6.
Then single-click the burn folder; a bar across the top of the window appears with a “Burn” button, as shown on the opposite page. Click that “Burn” button.

Or Control-click (or right-click) on the burn folder icon and choose “Burn Disc” from the contextual menu that appears.
