Burning CDs

Burning CD-Rs or CD-RWs within the Mac OS X Finder is extremely easy and very similar to working with any other storage device. To make the process as transparent as possible, Mac OS X creates a hidden CD-sized temporary storage area on your hard drive. Applications, files, and folders that are added to a CD are actually copied to this location until the user tells the system to burn the CD. Only after the burn starts are files actually transferred to the CD media.

To write your own CD, first insert media into the CD writer. The Mac OS X Finder will prompt you to prepare the CD, as seen in Figure 4.29. Again, this doesn't actually write anything to the CD just yet, but it tells the computer what your intentions are for the disk.
