Creating a Burnable Folder

Choose File, New Burnable Folder.

Type a new name for the folder; this name is also given to the CD you burn from this folder.

Drag files and folders into the burnable folder's window to add them to the CD.

INTRODUCTION

Burnable folders provide a way to collect files for burning later without having to actually move them. Dragging files into a burnable folder earmarks them for burning later. When you're ready to burn, click and go! Meanwhile, the files stay in their original folders so you don't have to put them away after burning the disc.

But What's It For?

Burnable folders are useful for keeping track of files you regularly transfer to another person or location. Because the file you see in the burnable folder is really just a marker for the real file, you can edit the file in its original location and the changed version is burned to the CD. The burnable folder sticks around after you burn the CD, so you can use it to create regular backups of the same set of files.


Click Burn.

Insert a blank CD.

If the system asks how to handle the CD, choose Open Finder and click OK.

Click Burn.
