Burning CDs and DVDs

With OS X, you can play, create, and publish audio and video on optical media. Depending on which type of optical drive your Mac is equipped with, you can burn some or all of the following types of discs: CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, and DVD+R DL (dual layer).

In the sections that follow, I show you two ways to burn files on a CD or DVD. For the first way, you insert a disc and select the files you want to burn. The second method, creating a burn folder, enables you to save the list of files you’ve burned.
